Capri atlas axle wanted

Post by Jonbell123 » Wed Jul 03, 2019 6:51 pm

Hi all, I'm trying to find an atlas rear axle for my 2.0s capri mk3 that is in standard condition that I can get rebuilt. Does not need to be the right ratio as can change c & p with rebuild. Does not need brakes on.
Plus would prefer if not miles and miles from Essex. Cheers all in advance!!!

Thankyou, yes I spoke to tickover and they have referred me to their specialist where I can get my existing axle rebuilt, so if it comes down to it I will have to take mine out and take it there etc. But this means taking the car off the road in mid summer :(
But, if I could get hold of another axle then I can get that one rebuilt, then take it to the garage and they can swap it with the existing one, that way the car doesn't have to be off the road for too long :)
Yes spoke to caprigear and I don't think they have one, I will ask again 👍
Cheers
