How dodgey are your doughnuts?
My cars done 145k+ without them being too chewed.
Had them done by a real mechanic on my mega mileage 116 Guiletta
and if I'm honest it made sod all differance
Not much help Jamie....Lifes too short to do real fiddling
have a beer instead ;)

Thats the easiest way I've found to do it :D

Don't forget to mark the bolt holes so that you get them all back in the same holes or you will be liable to get rumbling prop syndrome :(

I always remove the complete shaft and if I change doughnuts, I also change the spigot bushings to ensure the thing runs true. I've never had prop vibration problems by adhering to this method.

Having just done rear and mid donut's. Your thinking seems right.

I do wonder about how important keeping the bolt orientation is. teh pparts cd shows the bolts and washer as been all the same. although balancing weights are available.

Wanna see a bad donut..?
