Propshaft Balancing

Aurelias and Flaminias can suffer from excessive propeller shaft vibration which can be difficult to cure.  Lancia originally balanced the propshaft as a complete assembly, but over the past 60 or so years the paint markings have long since vanished, and the propshaft has been taken to pieces and assembled several times, often without making any attempt to preserve the same orientation of parts.

Omicron has invested in special vibration measuring and analysis equipment and recently have significantly improved the balance of many such cars, and can do similar works on your car.      We can also determine if the imbalance is due to the flywheel, engine, gearbox or clutch that is out of balance, and can take steps to rectify the problem. 

Recent cars to benefit from this service includes an Aurelia B24 Convertible, a B20 Coupe as well as Flaminia Touring GT, Flaminia Touring GTL and Flaminia Pininfarina Coupe, but the equipment could be used on other Lancia models as well.

For non-Lancia owners – we can only work on cars where the engine is at the front and the clutch and gearbox are at the back – ie the propshaft is always moving at engine speed.  We can only balance propshafts on the car, we do not lengthen or shorten propshafts, nor balance them off the car.
