Morris Minor Universal joints and propellor shaft

The borrowed Morris Minor seemed in need of a few new Universal joints. As there was a little play and a nasty vibration.
This press makes light work of removing the old joints
Below you can see one of the new joints in place. The new joints didn' t cure the vibration though. Changing the whole prophaft did. A good one supplied by Leadbetter's in the UK fixed the problem:The play was obviously caused by the worn splines on the nose sliding into the gearbox. It' s one smooth Minor now.
