Drive shaft clunk
Eric Sturgis <ericsturgis@xxxxxxxxx>: Jan 31 05:35PM -0800

Rich is correct in the front it's a ball and trunnion. The rear is the
u-joint. Very easy to replace the u-joint in the back. The front is a
different matter. It can be serviced and the boot ...more
Bob Faunce <bobsbelvedere@xxxxxxxxx>: Jan 31 08:46PM -0500

My experience with two 50 yo ball and trunnions is that it is not worth trying to repair them because it is hard and costly and you still have a 50 yo driveshaft that is likely at least partly out of ...more
James Hunt <jshunt41@xxxxxxxxx>: Feb 01 12:24AM -0500

Thanks for your input, perhaps that's why the previous owner didn't install
the U-joint he bought.
How long can I drive it before more issues occur?
This is what I'll see when I finally get ...more
MO <micher@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>: Jan 31 11:05PM -0800

That is probably what yours look like. Unfortunatly the pin that the
bearings slide on to, is pressed into the hole in the back part of the
joint. I understand it takes a press to get that pin ...more

Unless things have changed in the last year repair kits are not available. In my cars the drivetrain wobble gradually worsened over a long period of time. My shop did not feel that either would simply ...more

I've never seen an exploded view of that setup before. Looks like an overly
complicated pain in the a$$!
James Hunt <jshunt41@xxxxxxxxx>: Feb 01 09:55AM -0500

Thank you everyone for your input. As a no muss no fuss type of guy I'm
going to go with a new drive shaft. I'm in the Fort Lauderdale Miami
Florida area, if anyone knows of a good drive shaft ...more

I used Driveshaft Specialists twice. Very quick turnaround and fit perfectly although each cost a bit over $400 shipped to Maine.

I've had two driveshafts converted, one in Arkansas and the other in
California. Both were done in a local driveshaft shop. If you take the
pictures that Nick posted it should not be a problem. ...more

Interesting point about the slip joint. I had only seen them in the front. When I questioned the tech at DS he said that they learned that placing the slip joint at the rear allowed the shaft to ...more

Was flipping through the channels and Overhauling, a show I hadn't seen before, was restoring/rebuilding a 64 Sport Fury. Looked interesting until they put 20" rims on it.

That's the ticket, George! Amazing what I find when looking for
something else.
Gee, scanners, computers, email - - how did we do this stuff back in the
bad old 20th century??

Complete Exhaust System Needed for 65 Monaco with 383

Don't get dis-couraged if you only go to a few National chain muffler
shops. Look for one that is willing to custom fabricate you a exhaust
system. $4-500 should cover it....................MO

Don't whether to laugh or cry on those wheels. 64 Polara will need more than 13K to restore. Nice to see original..or maybe I'm just a cheapskate.
