#1 S1 early prop shaft cork washer

Post by Robbiee » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:29 am

Can anyone advise as to where I might obtain the cork washer that sits inside the collar that seals off the sliding part of the prop shaft. It has a split spring metal washer which I’ve retrieved but the cork has fallen apart?
I can’t see it listed anywhere and it doesn’t have a part number that I can see.
It is 1 5/8” ext diameter, 3/16” width and 1/4” thick

Hi All
I contacted R G Nuttall of Birmingham, who make bespoke cork gaskets and washers.
They made 4 of these for me for a fiver even though I only asked for 1. They normally have a £35 minimal order price but I told them it was for an Etype rebuild and they helped out!

If anyone needs one (they were fitted to All S1 cars UP TO
chassis numbers 850479, 877044, 860386 and 885887) then ask me and I can let you have one.

I know i’ll fit it and no one will know it’s there but...

Regards
