Hi,

didn´t want to use the Guide to cv thread.

 

The Volvo 340 lobro has appr 0,75mm lateral clearance on the Rover driveshaft.

Do I need to shim that somehow?

 

Cheers

 

Martin

Hi Martin,

 

Yes, I shim it and also use spline locking compound on final assembly.  I have some shims here but the thickness is not ideal as usually 1 is not enough and 2 is too much......  Happy to send you some if you want?

Hi Nick,

are these shims special ones for driveshafts (with a spline pattern?) or "normal" round ones?

For nomal ones  I always "visit" the storage of a mate with a machine shop.

shims sourced with a short visit at the mate´s workshop.

 

However, the snap ring seems to be weakened. I measure 1,6mm Diameter with an outer Diameter of 24,5mm. The grove is 2mm wide.

Can you confirm this data?

Not critical provided it all fits together snugly.  I usually re-use the ones from the Rover shaft which have "ears" for circlip pliers.  Clips are usually narrower that the groove - 1.6 - 1.8mm maybe, which needs to be considered when choosing the shims.  Don't have any on hand to measure.
