    Universal joint advice please

    I have upgraded the engine in my consul MK2 and decided to change the universal joints.
    The fitting was easy enough but there is play albeit small
    Its as though the joint diameter is slightly short
    Is there a fix for this?

    i take it you mean propshaft uj's? if so then if there's still any play like you describe it sounds like you got/were supplied with the wrong uj's.

    Unless the shims are equal each side it will vibrate badly. Best to get the right uj.
