U-Joints

Post by dokatd » Sat Dec 07, 2019 10:32 pm

Call me lazy, but I’m not finding anything with search and it’s cold so I’m not interested in going to measure. Best I recall is that the C303 use the same u-joint as a rover, am I remembering that right. I swear I rebuilt my front shaft, but I can’t recall what I used.

I can't recall but way back I decided to just have a new front shaft built with common (sealed) U-joints that I can find at any auto store, plus it was a superior shaft and dynamically balanced, etc..

Related: All the driveline specialists I've talked to over the years highly recommend permanently sealed joints and that's what I do to this day. They build them better than they used to :)

The joints are 1310’s by the way. The drive flanges are also a standard DIN pattern. Tom Woods drive shafts can easily build new or custom shafts.
