172 and 182 CV joints

  Trophy #473
Ive got an outer CV joint gone on my Trophy. Can I use a CV joint from a 172 and swap it over? will it fit in the hub?

You can swap the CV joints Nath, ive removed a few from 172 shafts, not hard to do really. You just need to get the right new CV... with yours being a trophy you will have the bigger hub/bearing anyway I think, only seen one when I had 480bhp's hubs once. So I'm guessing if thats the case then the CV needs to be the size of the bigger bearing? The actual splines and their size are all the same on 172/182.
