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.
I am currently looking at a Triumph 2500 PI with a view to purchasing it. The vehicle is fairly scruffy but a reasonable runner however I am concerned that it has rot at the base of the A Post. Normally I would fix that type of issue myself however I believe it is a fairly involved job requiring the removal of the front wing and I don't really have time for that. Has anyone got experience of having this area repaired professionally? If so, roughly how much did it cost - so I can assess how much the car is worth? There is also a fairly large rust scab on the back of the roof - similar question to the above. Any experiences of doing the repairs yourself would also be useful - my other classic is a Rover P6 so repairs are relatively easy as all the panels unbolt.
My driver side window feels as though it's missing a tooth as it skips when winding down and gets really tight after half way I have a spare door from a spitfire with a working regulator so my question is are they interchangeable or is there a way I can transplant the working winder mechanism into my gt6 regulator?
