Burman gearbox

Hello everybody,
Does someone knows the reference of the gear lever washer for the Burman gearbox (PR50).
I don't find it in the spare parts list.

I am not certain what part you are asking about. I have looked at the Spares List as well as the original blue print of the Burman and there is no washer that I can see as part of the shifting mechanism.

I don't know if this is significant but of the several Comet gearboxes that have passed through my hands over the years two of them had a leather washer fitted over the gearchange spindle sleeve that projects from the cover and is then sandwiched by the gear change lever. I don't know if this was an owner's modification or a feeble attempt by Burmans as an oil/grease seal.
