Re: cv axle shaft

Thanks for the info. I'm hoping to put in a new engine and transmission, and I'll get to look more closely at what's in there now.

Re: cv axle shaft

Thank you. One supplier has asked for a vin to identify the correct axle shaft. The car that's currently on the road has a 6-bolt flange on the passenger side shaft, and a plug-in (? no flange, just the splined shaft inserted into the transmission) on the driver's side. Does this mean that they're i...

cv axle shaft

I have an '87 ae82 (fx16) for which I'm trying to find a passenger side cv axle shaft. The output shaft of the transmission has a three-eared flange with a total of six mounting bolts. The auto parts stores here keep insisting that an eight-bolt flange will fit. It won't. On ebay I see two part numb...

Another quote that might apply: "When ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise". the reason I'm asking whether the 4ac and the 4age are the same except for the cylinder heads is that the fx with the 4ac that I've recently bought has the best compression numbers, and I have more twin cam h...
