I seem to have lost the original rear spring tapered spacer blocks on my BN 1 and after fitting new rear springs she sits a little too high , and
naturally these blocks serve to align the diff with the propshaft .
Has anyone an original aluminium block that they could measure and post the dimensions , please ?
I want to know so I can fabricate them .

Hi Graham
I just measured the best of my 2 spacers ex BN1 rear axle.
Length 4 1/8 inch
Width 1 3/4 inch

Depth 0.445 (thick end)
Depth 0.322 (thin end)

Hole Dia 7/16 inch

Yes the hole is in the middle.
Interestingly my second spacer measures minus 0.01 in depth at each end. I must have filed it a bit more to clean off the crud. So don't take my actual depth reading as gospel but pretty sure its the right angle
Regards
