I reamed my new layshaft bushes.  One bush allows the layshaft to turn but without any 'rock' in it.  The other is a tighter fit and holds the layshaft so it can't rotate.  I first thought that this was a good thing as the shaft doesn't spin round in operation.  But I'm now thinking that the shaft probably should rotate slightly in the bush to help gear engagement.

Can someone please confirm if the layshaft must be able to turn in the bush?

Cheers.  Bruce.
