front UJ part for 4speed syncro part 251-711-575/b

Post by syncro4us »

Anyone have a new or good second hand  front universal joint that fits over the splines on the front gear selector rod part 251-711-575/b for our 4 speed gearbox with G gear as this is the last part I need to overhaul ours

I found one German supplier apparently with stock, hopefully JP will remake them as they have done with the other linkage parts, though that won't satisfy Ian obv.
usual problem on 2wd and Syncro without the protective tube is wear in the pin holes so the pins the UJ is on are slopping about a bit, the wear can also be in the pins themselves, and when the pins were not available the bolts that some people fitted instead were worse for wearing as they had threads which fretted the holes
SyncroPete's old bus came back to the UK with the UJ made from wood, a bit of poor splitting mahogany type wood rather than some awesome ironwood fashioned and embellished by skilled wood carver

same part on both 2wd and Syncro, all built from August 1983 inc big window SA, so last time VW had them made probably in 2002, certainly no later than 2012, but probably 2007 was last time they looked at making any; We've just used them up after 18 years on from end of production in Europe so parts support not bad really, it's just a shame when they can't make them to same quality and sell them for 1980s 1,000 a week production price anymore  :(
