My car is a 1966 2.4 Mk2 (all synchromesh gearbox).
Does anyone know where I can get the correct rubber gaiter ? All suppliers I have contacted insist that there is but one gaiter (round) for all Moss and Jaguar synchro boxes but on the evidence of my car with original gearbox per build sheet, this is clearly not the case.
I don't know if they can help but their wide experince is as good as any, Classic Motor Cars in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, may be worth a call?

Must be the old square peg round hole thing !
I can't visualize how this round gaiter can be persuaded to accept the oblong retaining ring but I will give it a go with the application of some warmth and see what we can cobble together.
I will let you know the outcome, we are not wasting much money on the part if it doesn't work and if it's all we can get it has to be tried.
I have managed to coerce the round gaiter and the oblong retaining ring to come together after a fashion but it is very much a forced fit and I don't care much for the sound of contorted rubber when selecting a gear. Hoping that it will ease off with use and heat. Anyway, it's on and doing the job so thanks again.
