I'll have a look later Gareth - mine's out at the moment to convert to electric power steering.

36 splines. 17.5mm OD on my '74 MY. If it's any help the steering column is originally from an export MGC - LHD.

..or 11/16ths diameter with 36 splines in the original British /American Imperial measurement system if it was off an old MGC? :D
