Hi Guys, Restoring my recently acquired GT6 mk3 (1973). When I disassembled the rear near side trunion and removed the drive shaft, it was missing one of the bearings that sits between the trunion housing and the drive shaft and there was significant scoring on the drive shaft (see attached photo). I suspect the bearing has broken up and disintegrated at some point previously. My question is: based on the attached photos and info, is the driveshaft reusable/repairable or is it worth just buying a replacement. I suspect the other side will have the same problem. The scoring is around where the bearings will sit between the drive shaft and the trunion housing, so it’s quite a critical location. The scores vary in depth, the deepest about 1mm. If I need to replace, does anyone have any recommendations for suppliers? Thanks.
