Dave,

Is it actually a driveline shop ? These guys seem to be very incompetent.
Final balance is always done with the yoke and flange installed. The welded
flange to the tube should be perfectly in-line front to rear not 90 degrees.

Pete,
This shop has a very good reputation and comes highly recommended. They are very big on the 4x4 off road drive lines.

I will let them try one more time. The yokes are lined up correctly.

When I was there today they were dong a few heavy dump truck shafts, and a fellow was unloading some fork lift and other heavy commercial shafts.

Cheers,
Dave.

Well...I installed the shaft on the car this morning. Pat's replaced the u-joints and balanced it (again for the 5th. time) and it's 90% improved. It still has a slight harmonic vibration at about 55 mph, but I can drive under and over that so at least it's now driveable.

In all my years working on cars I NEVER had a shaft like this one.

It's still not 100% so I am still looking for a 124E d/shaft if anyone knows where the is one available.

Cheers,
Dave.

Dave,

It may be that the u-j's were removed with the aid of a hammer slightly damaging at least one end of the flange. Still it should indicate on the balance machine.
I have a few 105E 997cc d/s which are about 2" longer than the 123E 1200.
It can be cut to size but then again...? I will be driving to near Seattle this Friday.

Pete.
I don't want to go through that again if I can avoid it.

I've proven that even an old shaft with a bad joint runs smooth on my car.
Somebody, somewhere will have a shaft they can sell me......says he with fingers crossed. I know where there is one, trouble is I can't contact the fellow, but I'll keep trying. He has a 124E all in bits.

Cheers,
Dave.

Still looking for a prop shaft, I don't care if it's bent, I just need the yokes from each end. Even a 997 one will do, just have to change the length...(and it WON'T be done by Pat's D/Line this time!!!)

I had the car out to the Mission Historic races today..still vibrates around 50 mph, a lot better than it was, but not acceptable.

Anyone any idea if any other make used the same yokes..Cortina etc????

Cheers,
Dave.

Dave,

'59-67 Anglia, MK1/2 Cortina, Capri 1600 '71-73 use the same size yoke.
Early 105E had a dust shield around the yoke. ( best one to use )
I have spare 105E 997cc d/s with good yokes and flanges that i can remove.
Measure your flange should be 3 3/8". Cortina is 3 5/8"

You are starting to scare me now as I did have my driveshaft made at Pat's. I used a Cortina shaft to start with as the yoke and rear flange are the same depending on what diff flange you have. There are two sizes of diff flanges used between the Anglia and Cortina with the Anglia using the smaller of the two. I had to do mine to a custom length because it is to be used in a 100e Anglia with X/flow and 105e rear axle. The Cortina shaft is larger in diameter than the Anglia so I am not sure how that affects the ease to balance it? You may be able to see the slight difference between the Anglia and Cortina flange in the picture.

I do not yet have my car on the road so I cannot comment on the success of the driveshaft job?

Mine has the dust shield, so I guess the shaft is not the original.

I'll measure the flange dia. tomorrow.

Cheers,
Dave.

PS
Brett, Tom Morris was at the races today, took a picture of the Anglia.
Says he knows you.

I think having the dust shield is okay and original, I know that there was one on an original shaft I had here once, I recall knocking the shield off.
Regarding Tom, I know him very well. He is the founder of our British Car group here on the Sunshine Coast, I expect I will get that picture emailed to me very shortly? https://www.facebook.com/groups/687778181358431/

Hi Pete.

I have the smaller 3 3/8" flange.

Would you be willing to part with the yokes and flange?

Cheers,
Dave.

Still looking for a 1200 DS Dave? I'm coming into some parts next week and I believe I saw a 1200 DS in there...

Also are you looking for any spare Anglia bits?
