Alpha 1 bellows

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to replace driveshaft bellows on an Alpha 1(1989) without removing bellhousing? Exhaust sleeve is in good shape and shift cable bellows also in good shape as I did lower cable a few years ago. Can I fabricate a pull/push tool to facilitate install? Thanks in advance for advice.

I don’t know the answer to your question. However I need to replace the bellows on my shift cable only. The rest are fine. Is it possible to do it with the outdrive hard over?  I know I have to pull the shift cable through

If you have lots of patience, time, and strong small fingers you can do it.

I have done it several times. It seems easy. The newer type that slide into a slot are easy. The older type is a lot harder. Getting the glue to stick in the right places is not easy. It tends to dry up or get onto your hands.You will need soap,band aides and iodine. The soap is to wash out your mouth several times during the process.

The one thing that makes things a lot easier is sticking the bellows in very hot water for a while, it makes them softer and a bit more stretchy
