I have a related question: are the rubber joint and auto (hardy spicer) ones of the same length? I was thinking of using hardy spicer replacements (fitted to rubber joint shafts as would go on a Mini). They differ however in length on a Mini. However, if Rich gets pot joint ones to become available from MiniSpares, I might be your first customer for a LH one :)

Perhaps the value of allegros has just doubled :lol:

Edit: I just realised that the RH shaft would be the one to solve one of the more 'urgent' issues with the ADO16 rubber joint setup as at this side the rubber joint joke seems to like eating up the gearbox casing/clutch housing... So, one could have pot joint on the RH side and a rubber at the LH side. Not really my preference but it would work

How are you doing on the other one Rich - 22G2092

Maybe an offer of a s/hand one on FB - should I pursue it?

david

I will take what I can

I just want to be able to measure all the manual and auto ones to see what is what

I think the pot joint ones will be the same for either

I'll see what I can do Rich

Mini4Ever - on a car with the donuts the drive shafts are different lengths for the automatc - but I don't know when it comes to pot joints; I'll try to find out. :)

The Australian parts book lists the same driveshafts for both the Manual and the Automatic.
17H8598 = RH
17H8599 = LH.

I'm going to blame Simon..... spares@ado16.info :roll:

It's the whole assembly that is different, not the actual main driveshaft! ...so you're quite correct Seamist Green 1100

Great 8-) Hardy Spicer rules :lol:

Pot joint drive shafts will for sure be different at the gearbox end.

Perhaps the following is a reasonable approach for pot joints. Measure the difference in length for the RH pot joint shaft and a normal RH pot joint shaft. Assume this difference translates to the LH side. Cut the gearbox end off a standard LH shaft and do the same for a pot joint shaft of a Mini such that the total length after welding the Mini bit to the cut ADO16 LH shaft matches what was computed based on the assumption. Hope this makes sense.

I don't think there will be different lengths for the pot joints ones as the joint is able to cope with more movement than a rubber cross so it makes sense that the same shaft could be used on both auto and manual
