Default 32 to 34 spindles

Are 32 to 34 spindles interchangeable?
Our LHD 32 has a crack in the steering arm !

Short answer, YES. The Green Bible says part B 3105 (Spindle Assy -RH-LHD) fits 32-34 and B 3106 (Spindle Assy -LH-LHD) fits '32-'34.

Found a 34 one in my stash that was RHD , so cut off the drag link arm to make it identical to a LHD RH spindle. And it wasn’t cracked .!!!

Not to hi jack this thread, but here goes. If your upgrading an early A or 32/34 vehicle to a more modern rod such a Juce brakes and alittle engine mods. You might want to improve the steering, by using late 35/48 spindles and cross steering. Another sreering box bt Toyota Cellic had the input shaft over the frame and gives exhaust manafold clearance. The Chevy rag jiint fit;s the input and a Ford pitman arm fits the output. This is a vast improvement in driving pleasure. at a small cost.
