Good evening,
I recently bought a 1992 mini with no engine, however the drive shafts where still fitted with the inner pot joint bearings attached, during transit I think a couple of the bearings fell out. Is there anywhere I can buy just the bearings? don't want to have to replace the whole lot at this stage.
Regards

There are actually 3 different sizes at least. You kinda need the whole assy.

Do you mean you've lost a few of the ball bearings from the pot joint ?

If you mean the 6 x ball bearings per side, you can get them and they are 21/32"

You mean if the pot joints are original then that is the size they were originally. But there are 3 standard oversized balls specked as OE parts. And if the pots are no longer OE spec they could be a different size. I would just replace the whole joint.

If the bearings were visible on the end of the shafts then you’re missing half the joint anyway, presumably the other half was left in the (missing) gearbox.
