HI BROTHERS & SISTERS @ PLANET TRIUMPH I HAVE A REBUILD PROJECT WITH A HERALD 13/60 ONTO A HERALD ESTATE CHASSIS. HOWEVER THE CURRENT DRIVE SHAFT COMES UP X6" SHORT ON MY BUILD. OOOPSA?   DO I NEED A ESTATE PROP OR EXTENTION YUPP, I HEAR YOU SAY. I DONTG WANT TO RELOCATE THE GEARBOX CHASSIS BRACKET BACK AS THIS WOULD LEAVE ME WITH A PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE NOT LOCATING OR LINING UP WHERE IT SHOULD. NOTE I HAVE ADJUSTED THIS BRACKET TO MAXIMUM LENGTH. HELP

No difference in chassis. You probably have the wrong propshaft. See Canley Classics technical section for correct prop lengths. Cheers, Dave.


First Triumph: 200cc Tiger Cub. Followed by in no particular order, 350 and 500 Royal Enfield Bullet, Herald 1200, Herald 13/60, Mini 1275 GT, Vitesse 2L convertible, Audi 80, Audi 80 Sport, Fiat 124 Sport Coupe, Triumph 2000, Mk 2 Estate, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Stilo, Fiat Uno, Peugeuot Turbo Diesel(yuk), Lancia HPE 2000ie (wow! a dream!) So far 3 Heralds and My fourth Vitesse in the garage. I may have forgotten some... It's my age.. Oh , Honda 400 four.. Terrifying! And the 2 Renault 5s. Oh, and the Ford Granada 3 litre estate..I think that's the lot.
