OK... been on the road for two days (today being 2nd day)
When I installed the new shaft with 1350 slip... I still have a bit of side-to side play between the yoke tabs at the ujoint caps.... I have inspected the yoke for obvious wear... THERE IS NONE THAT I CAN TELL.... but that is besides the point.
After installing and driving... she was smooth as silk....
on my way home last night.. I got on it....when she shifted from 1st to 2nd, I picked up a decent vibe from the drivetrain....
I went under and checked the rear joint at the 14ff yoke and sure enuf, the joint had slid to one side!
I took a brass punch and hammer and re-centered the joint and test drove... smooth as silk again... I just cant get on it WOT yet...
Now... am I missing something? this is the 2nd 1350 joint I have had in there and they both have the same slop.... it's a tad less than 1/8" total slop... so less than 1/16" on each cap
any ideas? thanks
I think I will just buy a new yoke.... but this bothers me... NEVER seen this before on ANY vehicle..
