Driveshaft inner CV tripod replacements

Postby RonR » Sat 05.12.2020, 15:23

The driveshaft rebuild continues...
Just found a replacement tripod for the inner CV joints - It's a GI69 tripod with 30 splines - GKN have a "motorsport" version listed as part number MS3H002. I've ordered one, trial fitted it and - it fits on the N/S (L/H) shaft. Don't see why they would have used a different one on the O/S but I'll be trying it in the next few days and will report back here.

great find Ron, could you also check if they can supply the correct inner boot/gator? as the inner one is always the hardest to source (at least it is here!)

I asked last year and they didn't have an alternative, no harm in asking again though. The generic inner boot that I found didn't have enough clearance.

If you ever need an inner CV boot buy the Shaftec BK40, they are a perfect fit.

Do the Shaftec BK40 boots accommodate the big nylon washer thing that protects the boot from the tripod?
