#yourProject – Haflinger Axle – Group 6

Axle cuff Haflinger MK1
Who doesn’t know? A defective axle cuff on the front axle


The first Haflingers still had a rubber cuff over the articulated shaft. If you have discovered the defective front axle cuff in time, you may still be able to repair your drive shaft. In the meantime, there are also replicas, which are however many times more expensive. The spare parts catalogue is very useful here. Here the necessary spare parts such as O-rings and cuffs are listed. Our thanks for this project goes to the company Autoquariat.
