Re: Minor problem Major annoyance



About 1/2 way down the page shows what I mean by a Cradle.

Is there a bearing in the tailshaft that can cause that?  I don't know, just an idea.  You will find out one day what is the cause.  Just drive the hell out of it.  But put on a cradle to catch the drive shaft when it breaks,   I'm not being a smart ass I swear.  

We own a 2004 Chevy 10' box truck, it makes a metal squeak high pitched whine in first gear only.  It's a chevy thing, it started at about 60k and they said the tranny was toast.  That was 3 years ago and the truck has 145k now, still makes the noise, still drives fine.  It's a pinion bearing for the first gear and the noise echos off the hollow drive shaft so it seems the noise comes from the driveline, but it's the tranny.  

Let us know what the cause is.

Driveshaft is brand new, Denny's. Has grease zerks and the joints are packed full.

You sure it's the yoke and not the U joint?  A dry joint will squeak & squeal in a second.  Lube the U joint or replace it.  Depending on how mechanical you are, if their is no zerk to lube the U joint, just drill an appropriate size hole in the center of a cap and screw a self tapping zerk in and lube the joint.

Question for the group.
Since the first day I drove my Plymouth after getting it running, I've had an annoying squeal from the front driveshaft yolk spinning inside the rear transmission seal. Before you start, yes it does it even when my wife isn't in the car.

I've pulled the shaft out many times and lubed it with moly grease, lithium, dry powder lube, machine oil, even WD40. Goes away for a couple of days and then starts again. Pulled into a car show at low speed and overheard one guy say, "It even comes with it's own sound effects". Driving me nuts. Anyone experienced this? Solutions? Thanks

Big block, 4 speed
    
Travis
