Hi Gianluca
               I had problems with my P5 Mk3 4sp with overdrive. The main problem was the ball part at the bottom of the shift lever being badly worn and loose. I eventually made one up, not perfect but it did work. While I was doing this I learned of a chap in New Zealand who had machined new ones that matched the original part. I no longer remember his name but perhaps someone else on the net will know who I'm referring to. The most important and difficult part is lining up the rod-selector that runs forward from the lever ball to the gear box. Once you have that right everything will work as it should but it takes a lot of trail and error to get there.
                    regards Ben (irishrover)
