Found the problem with my faulty driveline


I posted a question a week ago about my faulty driveline from my 89 Samurai...
Well, I found the problem!!!!!!

It was a worn cardan(or cross) coupling in the driveshaft from the Trans to the T-case.

We found it buy the following procedure:
We checked if the drive shafts(3x) had play,
no play > Coupling OK!
When we rotated the shaft with the T-case in 'N', we could feel a hard point, so we removed it
The input axle from the T-case rotated smoothly > T-case OK
so it was the driveshaft or the transmission
I hoped of course that it was something with the driveshaft because i didn't like to do an overhaul of a transmission!
we removed and then checked the driveshaft and found that one axle of the Cardan (cross) coupling was very stiff
> problem found!

A new "+" is all I need to make my samurai back on the roads (and off course riding trails, because that's why 4x4 or supposed te be build, wouldn't you say so?!)

Thanks for the advice!
