Burman steering u-joint

I have one spare from an Alfa Romeo/FNM 2300. My Montreal is already assembled so I can not figure out the correct U joint. Anyway, the 2300 joint is very similar except the OD is around 15mm with 4mm bolt gap. In that region there is enough material tickness that will permit to open up to 22mm and reinforce just in case. Number of splines are matching. Here are two pics.

Thank for info where did you find this uj from the beginning any reseller ?

I have already find a reseller but it is the same problem with the OD that is 17mm so more closer to the final 22mm

But if I don’t solve I will have you in mind

Burman steering u-joint

This is a car manufactured during the 70´s and still some NOS parts are available in brazilian resellers. Probably you can find this part outside Brazil, but not sure the AR part number. I will keep this spare here just in case.

Hello,

Back in 2006 I was unable to locate an Alfa Romeo part to replace a worn steering u-joint on my '72 Montreal. Some internet-sleuthing back then found an alternate part: A Moto Guzzi V7 850 Ambassador driveshaft u-joint. According to my notes, the u-joint measured 44 mm wide (flat to flat) with a bearing cap diameter of 20 mm. It's obviously been a few years, so I can't recall if there were any special mods needed to make it fit, but it has worked well since 2006. And, at least it's from the same country of origin!

Good luck

Steve M.

Hi Sportivos
Could you please keep us posted on the process of fitting power steering it's something I and I am sure others will be interested in. Alfaolics did fit it to a Montreal it is supposed to be speed sensitive, but yes it is very expensive. Many thanks
Regards Geoff
