I’m still in the process of assembling a 1931 TT rep that came in large bits. The gearbox came with the detent plate and spring loaded ball in an L-shaped arm, but the bike will have hand change. Do I therefore need to change for a simple arm without the ball etc (I do have one available) and remove the plate? From what I read below, having both the detent plate and hand change is a bad combination.
