85UR Quattro Speedi-Sleeve Fail

Posted on Apr 02, 2017

Got the right axle seal in but not started on the right one yet, the BIG one. Had to order the drive shaft seal as I had the wrong one but I did try fixing the groove in the shaft with a Speedi Sleeve.

These press on the shaft using the tool provided with the sleeve but it didn't go too well and we were very disappointed with the tool as it seemed too big.

Will try again perhaps with one from a different supplier. We received some yokes for the diff actuator from a generous member of the community.

and for fun tried our new BRAID wheels for the 83 rally build on for size.

16x9, et12 so they are way too wide for the stock fenders of this car but will work well on or wide body rally car.
