The MGA With An Attitude

MGA Propshaft Tech covers that otherwise gaping space between the gearbox and the rear axle. This is one small assembly, but there are some design variations, and there can be some very serious problems.
MGA 1600 type propshaft
When the splined shaft is assembled to the drive shaft it is essential that the forked yokes on both shafts have their axes parallel to each other. In other words, yoke (A) must be in alignment with yoke (B), and the flange yoke (C) must be in alignment with the flange yoke (D).
