Drive Shaft Repair

Drive Shaft Repair.jpg After degreasing and inspection, I realized my drive shaft is more severely worn than I originally thought.

Re: UNIVERSAL JOINT AND CLUTCH DISC

There is a thread on this site about using the original u-joint spider and re-fitting with modern needle bearing caps. I am not aware of a source for a new u-joint. (I plan to work on u-joint issues soon) For a 10 inch AA truck clutch to Ford specifications, see the current thread. Clutch Heaven

Re: CLUNK IN DRIVE TRAIN WHEN SHIFTING

Re: CLUNK IN DRIVE TRAIN WHEN SHIFTING

Re: Original AA colors

If you have interest, I will mail you the card with the popsicle stick on it, or you can buy a quart of HG and BLK and mix according to the formula provided. (Then re-paint your wheel barrel or some other object that needs a coat of paint and then admire your Rock Moss Green paint job, LOL!)

Re: Torque Tube Grease Retainer (seal) Dimension?

Neill, Thank for your help The new seal is an SKF 12506. It’s.406 thick X 1.987 OD. It cost $8.97. It seems like a perfectly good oil seal made to today’s standards.
