85 Trans Parts

Recommended Posts

Have just had my (new to me) Esprit for a month or so and the splines on one of the axles has rounded off. My mechanic has never seen this condition before but says I need a new axle. Not sure what is involved here as far as parts needed but is there a parts source in the US / Canada that anyone can direct me to?

are the pics you show form both ends of the same shaft?

My mechanic has noted that he needs the entire shaft (left side) and it's one piece.

Hi, pictures are from the inputshaft ( clutchshaft ). I have never seen a diff.axle with worn, roundoff splaines. It that is the case, you must strip the differential and check the splaines inside the planetairy gear on that side of the gearbox.

Harry,

It was the intermediate shaft that needed replacing.

I've found that part and had it installed.

Thanks for assistance,

Dan
