Re: Check the driveshaft & U-joints

If anybody is interested, I can snap a couple photos of the custom driveshaft Driveline Services made for my '59 when it's front U-joint body was too worn to reuse. The new driveline has a disk that bolts to the tranny's brake drum, a short piece with a slip yoke and grease fitting, then a conventional U-joint and driveshaft. It was cheaper than a N.O.S. ball and trunnion set up and is a nice compromise if you are retaining the original transmission and parking brake, but not building a show car.
