im fitting the 2L 16v xe in to my nova , ive got some nova gsi driveshafts and outer cv joints, can i use the inner cv joints off a cav 2L 16v or do i have to use the ones off a cav 1.6 8v. any help would be apprieciated.
count the number of splines inside your nova outer cv`s and they should have 22 as these are the ones you need some of the later nova gsi`s had 28 and you cant use thees ones. the cav inners you need are about 30 quid each from your local motorfactor or you can get them from just novas for a bit more..
I thought the inner number of splines were all the same. The outer ones differed because some shafts were made by a company called Saginaw (28 splines) and others were made by Vauxhall/Opel. Not all cars came with a single make of shaft either i.e. some had one Vaux, one Saginaw
