Propshaft manufacture

Post by Tinker man » Fri Mar 24, 2017 11:29 am

So the project is at the stage i needed a new propshaft to join the ZF autobox to the scim diff.

I dropped a line to a few manufacturers... Northwest Propshafts were quite brilliant. they answered my query within an hour. sent me a simple template to complete.

i sent that back to them. they quoted me within an hour. I rang them and I said yes please. and the best bit???? when i asked the lead-time.... it was........ wait for it........ 3..........HOURS.

i have been to collect it today, they chap i was dealing with (Michael) was very polite, efficient and even gave me directions to beat the local traffic jams in Coppull. or they will courier to you for £15.

i am sure there are others out there just as good, but its not often I am left saying to myself "now that was excellent customer service". NTDWM but link below.

they have a branch in Manchester and Coppull Lancashire. pics below. total cost £150, which i thought more than acceptable. it may help someone else out especially if in a hurry.

If it is made of nuts and bolts I WILL take it apart..... going back together is a whole different ball game

I had a similar experience with Dave Mac Prop in Coventry, excellent service at a price that seemed very fair.
