WITH A BANJO ON MY KNEE

Early MGB models (up to 1965) used a ‘banjo’ type rear axle, whereas later examples had a Salisbury type item.

While the banjo axle was adequate for road use, when subjected to the rigours of racing broken half-shafts were common. The later Salisbury axle was much tougher, having been designed for the six-cylinder MGC, later five bearing MGBs and also the MGB V8.

Cambridge Motorsport Parts can now offer a race banjo axle casing for early MGB models that incorporates the later style half-shafts, back plates and brake drums making it a direct fit on early MGBs, instantly providing an upgrade and More >
