The prop' I have here at the house is 59" overall fully wound in, which sounds similar to your's. A trip to the lock up with a tape measure then...

When I measured it, it was exactly 153cm.

Prop' from the lock-up measures 56", so that gives the 4.25" you need, but it needs a new centre carrier and would benefit from replacement UJs too, or you could just use the front end with your existing rear...

Your speedo cable will probably have the correct connector to the angle drive, but will probably be too short to be comfortable. If you can measure your's, I'll see if I have a longer one.

Ok, looks like i'm having your prop as well then? :') which is the shorter part do you reckon - I'm wondering if my centre carrier is the longer part? What about my u/j's, can I use those, they're relatively new too?

It's too dark realistically to get out there now and see what I'm doing, but I can measure the speedo cable on Thursday potentially, or Friday. The cable is a female screw top if I remember correctly.

Alun, I know you are not attending the stoneleigh show, but are you getting stuff taken there? Just a thought, I can pick anything up at the show.

Cheers
Clive

There are no plans for this at the moment.

The shorter part is the front part, and if you are confident about your UJs no reason to not re-use them
