I believe I was the original poster of that scan and it was from a 1965 distributors catalogue. In that case, it's 32/40 but I'll look for it again to confirm.

Sounds like a proper English 3 speed.

An excellent tip; didn't think of reshaping the lead end of a shift cable to slide into the narrow Sturmey receiver.

If they were mine I'd reuse them but I'm no Sturmey expert. I'd think a good cleaning and reassembly per season would get you by until you absolutely had to find new parts.

I didn't know about the 3000S. Rounded diamond plate on both ends and no reflector. Even better. They are harder to find, but a google search turned up a $20 price.
