This is the original trans-axle from the notchback.
I have always thought it was just about perfect (smooth as silk), but while the car is being restored, I will dismantle it, replace suspect parts as required and have it re-assembled as per factory.
So at this stage I am not expecting anything too bad. All original fasteners etc will be reused 100% and the casings will be painted once again in black as per original.
I might install a set of Gene Berg side plate savers just because I can, but that will be about the only deviation from original.
