Fantastic stuff Trev, I once owned a Lancia Aurelia which has the same front engine, rear gearbox and engine speed transmission shaft arrangement as the Clisby Douglas. You soon learn that an engine speed transmission shaft brings it's own unique issues. I'm not surprised getting the shaft was right was trickier than he expected. Shaft wear and balance issues become much more obvious much more quickly.  I was deluding myself I could afford to run such exotica as a Lancia Aurelia. My love affair with an Italian beauty was short and expensive. Drive shaft wear was looming as a further expense.

Cheers, Bob
