Hi

To get the driveshaft off the outer CV I would separate the CV from the hub carrier, then I used a soft metal hammer or steel one if you are replacing the CV and clamped the driveshaft in a vice with the CV hanging don. You then have to strike the CV downwards hard. This is to force the round circling on the shaft to compress and allow the shaft to come out of the CV....

Not elegant, but I do not know of another way!

thanks peter. I managed to do it.... but I got a lot of questions

I dissassembles the both joints, cleaned the parts and reassembled them again

I received the replacement cv joint kits, but i am in doubt of using them. like you can see on the next photo the shaft that goes in the bearing is ribbled instead of the factory one

There was a gasket included with the inner joint. Where does that go?

and finaly: I tought the wheel bearings in the front and rear hub were the same, ...not on my car. they are way smaller then the rear bearings

Hi

The longer splines should not be an issue. The main problem I had with the CV I had was to do with the flange which interfered with the bearing when the whole thing was tightened up. This flange is the replacement for the dust ring which you have removed from the original CV. I had to have it machined to accept the ring. Your Cv may be more compatible and not bind when fully tightened hopefully.

started with the filler. its the first time i do this and follow the instructions from some youtube video. I think its gonna take a lot of time...and dust

IMG_3820 by frederikleyers, on Flickr

the back section, I have to reform it because I welded a selfmade panel i it, but I don't want to use a too thick layer of filler.  So these pictures are my first attempt to get a nice shape. The smoothness is not yet an issue here

I searched the internet some last night and found this polish website, http://www.auto-spinka.pl/en_GB/c/Lancia/3322  (no worries they have an english version)

I made a little order and will tell if they fit when the clips arrive (shipping costs are low)

Hi

That looks like a good result, I may we'll get some as I was short of usable ones from memory.

Question on the valve springs: mine outer springs are without the specifications in the haynes manuel. they are a little too much pressed together. Replace them?
thanks, fred

still working on the body. Definitely not my favourite part of the restoration proces.  It is frustraing because sometimes i may have worked for a couple of hours but I don't have the impression that i made some progress. And on these youtube videos these guys have all the time of the world to spread out the filler, but with me i really have to rush or the filler is already drying out.( sorry for the complaints)
