    Just in the process of checking over my 5 speed box, replacing the return spring and shimming the selector drum and like some thoughts on layshaft float.
    Book says to shim shaft from 167.1 to 0.2 but once fitted I still think the end float is excessive.
    Watched a couple of German guys assembling a box and he trail fitted the layshaft saying he likes float to be 0.1 but no more than 0.20mm
    I feel this is a better way to go.

    You are probably fine either way as the whole intended purpose is to avoid excess slop but also to prevent lateral binding on the shaft.

    It would seem that your German guys have had good results so that’s comforting as well.

    Just remember that too little clearance is as bad if not more so than too much.
