Need a new or used in good condition front yoke for a Spridget driveshaft. Thanks! Got yokes. Thanks to the folks who responded.

Don't need the sleeve. Helping a friend rebuild his father's HP Sprite he raced in the '60s and '70s. Son has put in new rear bushing but the yoke looks like it went through a giant blender. Shoot me a price and address and I'll get a check to you. PM me and I'll give you mailing address. Thanks!

Note that new bushing requires reaming to fit yoke, and checking again after assembly as fit may tighten when yoke is aligned on both splines and in bushing.

True, but that also gives me a chance to put the yoke in the lathe and skim off any irregularities. Have also shimmed the bushings in tail pieces that had the bushing spin. In all, that arrangement was not the greatest engineering feat by the Brits. Had one transmission with with a bearing installed which I thought was a great idea until I found out how much work it took to put it in.

That's exactly what I do. Most used yokes are either scarred or rusty. And as you have to hone to fit anyway with a new bushing, cleaning up the surface makes good sense..
Have you check with Don? He has about a dozen Spridget drive shafts laying around.
