May I point out an article on a most important topic, just published by my good friend Geoffrey Goldberg on his website:
http://web.me.com/geoffreyg/Aurelia_Tips_/driveshafts.html
This should be essential reading to technically minded Aurelia owners (all of them?)

Geoff's article is very thorough and informative. Allow me to mention that the early transmissions had two different ways of centering. One was with the bronze bushes mention by Geoff, another was with hardened steel bushes. As far as I know the steel bushes are not available any longer. I have successfully exchanged mine for bronze bushes. As far as I remember one has to change the centering pins also.

thanks for all the kind words. The earlier bushes (if the s.2 is any indication) are more like paper thin bushings, about 1" long, and very thin (1/32", even with a bit of a taper). The later bushes (up to s.4) are bronze "O rings", but squared off. Different altogether.

Glad you are all finding it useful!

Excellent article. We have just completed eradication of a bad vibration on the B24S, 2500-4000rpm range, which was partly cured by flywheel balancing but the major culprit was the clutch being out of balance. Getting there was hugely time consuming I have to say, by far the largest job in the restoration of the car!
