But lilbill intends to fit this Commando gearbox to a Harley 45.
So to convert a right side shift Commando gearbox to left side operation should be a matter of fitting the MkIII inner and outer covers and all other specific MkIII parts, which must include the (065150) oval shaped knuckle pin roller.
The MkIII quadrant (065148) also has a shorter spindle and is retained by a circlip instead of a bolt to allow clearance for the MkIII shaft and coupling sleeve.
lilbill, note that the MkIII gearchange shaft (pawl carrier) is angled slightly from right to left, it is not aligned squarely across the frame, which you may need to allow for when making up a cross shaft linkage.
