Hi All,

Are the universal joints common items or unique to the JH? I have the driveshaft out and the front U-joint is loose. I would like to replace it and see if my strange noises go away before digging deeper into the clutch and pressure plate. I have a local wholesale parts house that's open Sundays.

Edit: I got the U-joint out and it was fried. The bearings in one cup had disintegrated and the post was 1/4 inch shorter than the rest! The yokes measure 15/16ths as do the cups so I should be able to get one tomorrow. The hardest part of the affair is re-filling the transmission.

I have the earlier rear flange which is smaller with smaller U-joints than the later version. I have a rear end with driveshaft with the beefier parts from a car with engine #74 04 6951.  Does anyone know when the switch was made?

13148 is back together and on the road with new u-joints. All of the noises are gone and were probably other things vibrating to the thunk of the driveshaft.

See you on down the road,

Kurt
