The new rubber "thing" must center at the same distance from the output flange as the spherical ball`s working surface
at the output shaft.
The "plates" must be at the same distance from that center as well or movement will not be uniform.
Have a great trip. I can provide lots of water for rain in England if needed.

Maybe. I donít see the reason for the three washers between the Giubo and the rear plate.
(Added to this with post)
If the rubber thing is narrower than the OE Giubo then using an uneven count of washers front or back will NOT center it as with the OE part.
It appears that Spruell has switched sources for the Giubo. Jay says that his is different from mine and does not use spacers. I wonder if they have ever installed and run one of the new type.
I donít feel like doing the development work for this thing. Maybe I should wait until I get back from England and see if any reliable information surfaces while I am away.

Looks like you have the plate mounted at the giubo on the front side with washers between it and the output flange. On the rear side you have the guibo then 3 washers then the driveshaft flange.
Is it interfering with the driveshaft?

Here are the pictures. I wonder if the rear safety plate is spaced too far from the giubo with the three washers and is possibly interfering with the nose of the driveshaft. They are very close.
The first 3 pictures are on the bench and the 4th one is installed on the car.
I think that I will start a thread on the ABB about it.
