St Eval - are the PJ8N ones definitely 6"? Need at least one ASAP

Thanks
I did not follow this through in the end as I have 2 spare so will wait until I run out. Not much help but interested in the outcome if you do find the one that fits.

Well I've had my usual luck with ordering from the bay of e as it looks like they have sent an outer cv joint as its nothing like mine or the pic in the listing. It is however 6"! The box has PJ8N on it as well

Oh no are you saying it's the wrong one? When do you need one by and where in the UK are you?

Just to update I have now bought 2 off PJ8N fiesta CV joints from another seller and they are the correct size.

I have found a slight issue with the Shaftec PJ8N housings, they come with a tripode and you need to use the tripode it comes with (unless you are lucky). The std ford tripode is 29.95 across the roller (according to Ford and the ones I have) but some of the Shaftec ones vary, out of 4 I have had 1 at 29.95 2 at something like 30.4 and 1 31. something.
I'm trying to use the 29.95 size with a 30 spline rather than 22 spline so that I have all the same size joints on the Ralt, Imp and My sons Mygale.
