drive shaft bearings

Are all the universal joints on my 87 drive shafts the same? and does anyone know where I can pick up 6 of'em that can be greased ie have grease fittings?

Re: drive shaft bearings

Yes all 6 joints are the same.
The only ont I can get that cam be greased are Precision model 391, or any other brand p/n 391. Those are the same size and can be greased. The only bad thing is that they don't come with the right retanaing clip for the zuks.

Re: drive shaft bearings

So if I pick up some new retaining clips from the Dealer I can put a complete set of U.J.'s without breaking the bank? [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: drive shaft bearings

Also, I don't know for a FACT!, but I think some of the u-joints with the zerks are engineered wrong. I had a couple that would bind up if the zerk was screwed in all the way (there might be one of the center holes that is larger to accomidate the zerk'ed bearing cap).
You might want to stager the zerk sides so there are no balencing problems.
Make sure to grease'em atleast quarterly for Daily drivers.

Re: drive shaft bearings

I have had better performance from original ujoints that are 10-15 years old than the greasable ujoints I have used. I got so tired of replacing the ones I had with a lifetime guarantee that I quit bringing them back to be replaced.
