Re: Universal Joint & drive Shaft Mounting Help

I'm not familiar with the specific u-joints of the 31 AA but in the 28/29 u-joints side to side play is fine. It is the rotational play (slop) that is not a good thing.

Re: #6 Cross Member

Hi Dave, Wow, this is great news! I would be very interested in the #6 cross member. Do you have a solution for the stamped AA-88141 reinforcement d2 bracket? Mine are pretty beat-up so I was also working to have those made. Where are you sourcing your rivets from? I've looked everywhere for the 9/...
