Re: CV Joint seating washer

There is a drawing & description in your Haynes Manual in the chapter on 'Driveshafts'. It is cut from 1/4in. - 6.5mm sheet steel or a washer with a Diameter of 50mm & a centre hole of 25mm. Don't use anything thinner as you will not be able to pull the CV joint tight. Eamonn.

Re: Sad News

Thanks for all the kind words. Hope that I can survive as long as he did - 86 is a good innings and, except for the last 2 years, he was very active. He was still climbing ladders to paint the gutters and any other DIY job that needed doing around the house. I'll Miss you Dad.

Hi Man!!!

Standard grease for all Mini nipples is Castrol LM or equivelant. Squirt grease into trailing arm nipple until you see it coming out at the sides. thats how you know you have put enough in.
