Perhaps a previous owner thought they'd switch to long drive shafts, but just did the one side first to see how it felt. As their daily commute was always round an anti-clockwise one-way system it handled just fine.

If it's any consolation, a previous owner of my donor had fitted a copper brake pipe into a union feeding a rear drum without flaring it. Thankfully it let go while I was bleeding the brakes, not out on the road. Needless to say I stripped the entire braking system down and made sure everything was safe.

It looks like you'll need to fit another long shaft to get the clearance you need, but aren't the radius arms for long and short shafts also different lengths and/or the ends sit at different angles?

Anyway, a thorough check of all the suspension and braking components appears to be in order.

Micky - Obviously I like the colour.

Good luck sorting out the drive shafts, Paul.

The short drive shaft has now been replaced and although every think look OK I still haven't done a road test yet.

Looking for a cheaper grill found this.



Worth a little effort maybe

Well, there is certainly no harm in trying.

Good luck, Paul.

Love the grill option! Was originally a bit taken aback due to what it's off of, but then thought 'stuff it' as it totally keeps with the character of the car!
