View Full Version : Unequal Drive Shaft Lengths

09-27-2005, 02:56 PM
I rebuilding a 1968 MK II Cooper S, left hand drive. It has been totally stripped down. The engine and transmission is still at the shop. While working on the front end I noticed that the drive shafts are of unequal length. Does anyone know if the longer shaft is for the right or left wheel hub? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I'll try and remember to pull a tape on mine tonight and let you know. I don't have the Hardy-Spicer type you were looking for in the other thread, but the relative lengths should be about the same.

The Parts list shows the right hand one as the longer ot the two. It makes sense to me because the clutch is on that side.
