What sort of price are you looking at for a pair of Honda shafts?

The cost to cut and sleeve your original shafts is 55. You will need to send me 2 mini shafts and two Honda shafts providing your using mini hubs. You also need to let me know the lengths you need them to be.

I am interested to know if it is possible to machine a Mini end on to a different shaft, be it Honda/Rover/Vauxhall etc. The shafts are all bigger than a Mini one so would have enough material on them to turn them down and spline them to suit. Doing them this way would mean they were not cut so hopefully stronger.

I don't need any, but these do seem to be causing issues for others.

Thanks guys

ardonfast - Im only in Crediton so not to far away from Dunkerswell.

AGoaty - Providing the sleeving is done correctly it will be very strong anyway. I think from memory the weakest part of the shaft is the mini end where the circlip stop is, as its quite a deep groove and seems to be the weak spot. Also once you turn down a drive shaft to a smaller size you remove its harden shell as the drive shafts are heat treated to make them stronger. This then makes the part you'd want to cut a spline into soft and would probably need re hardening.

I have the machinery to do the splines just not the tooling. Once i get some tooling ground up i can give it ago and report back with a cost. But sleeving is the cheap and cheerful way to go.

Ha yeah used to be on there. I moved out of that house about 9 years ago so 7/8 will be about right!! How did you get on with it? I see you've gone for something abit bigger now.


Cookie4343- 50 for the pair plus postage if you posting them. Best way to measure is to push the hub up to the top bump stop and measure from circlip groove to circlip. Or cut you shafts over sized so you can fit them both in. Allign them side by side and scribe a line

Cheers Adam
