Belated thanks Neo
That is pretty much like the illustration from the Haynes manual showing one dished washer but no indication whether it is splined or plain
I have to say I am pretty hacked off with this whole deal as it appears that the joint kit that I bought from GSF in the belief that it was an outer CV joint before discovering it was an inner is just a collection of miscellaneous bits that have been stuck in a box and put on the shelf because when I came to fit it last weekend it turned out to be about 10mm smaller than the other side. I've lost the recipt so I'm just going to have to swallow that one
When I fitted the other side the joint was so tight on the splines that I had to drive it on with a sleeve and hammer which meant dis-assembling the joint which is now locked solid on re-assembly
I have now bought two aftermarket quality joint kits and spent the last two evenings fabricating a puller to avoid having to drive them on to the splines only to find that they slide on with no effort BUT they only come with plain dished washers that slide straight over the driveshaft shoulder meaning I have had to fit the splined washers from the original kits
honestly, I am almost at the point of weeping...
