Yes Nestor, they will go in and work as well as with the modified set up - but why on earth would you want to fit a consumable item in a place that needs engine out to replace them?

The Centa Compensator is an interesting piece of machinery. It seems to have solved a lot of the driveline's engineering problems, but they haven't perfected the build quality of them or something. I recently had my car out and totally lost drive, so coasted to a stop. Tried restarting but the starter wouldn't even turn over the engine.

Towed the car to my local dealer and it was found that all four rubber bushings inside of the Centa Compensator had totally failed and disintigrated. Keep in mind I do not abuse my car, nor do I dog it. There was also a problem with the drive coupling. Keep in mind this is on a a car with 1300 or so miles on it.

I'm pleased to be able to pick it up this weekend, and I'm still absolutely in love with the car.

Thought I'd share this image of a Bleazey modified Centa in situ.
[Linked Image]
We are lying under the front of the car looking up at the Centa bellhousing, i.e. the engine is at the bottom of the photo and the gearbox at the top. You can see the circular plate that can be loosened off in order to extract the polybush rollers and also a brown tab of one of the rollers intended to make hooking them out easier.

Great photo, thanks! Are any dealers fitting Phil’s mod yet?

Not as far as I know. The best option is to go and stay with Phil for a couple of days and do the work (alongside him) in his cozy workshop. You get an education as well as a top-notch engineered solution.
