    UN5 transaxle alignment

    My GTD40 was fitted with an upgraded UN5 transaxle some years ago, replacing a UN1. Before I owned it. Was investigating a clutch problem recently, and discovered that the input shaft has almost 3mm of vertical movement (none in other directions). No symptoms in driving, but looks like a problem...

    Greetings from Sydney Australia

    Have joined as the new owner of a 1984 GTD40 painted in Gulf colours and road registered - eligible for historic registration! Car is very well built, but starting to look closely at all the little things I don't like. Especially the red and blue Aeroquip fittings. Oh, and the Facet fuel pumps...
