A visit to the junkyard...FOUND IT!

/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gifWell, not EXACTLY, but I found a bellhousing cover plate that can be cut and fitted to my pickup pretty easy. I also found a LIKE NEW front shaft with a CV joint that is so new I could NOT believe it. They had two shafts that will make one good one. Mine is totally kaputzo. I'm going back in the morning with my sample shaft to check measurements. I also got some rare FS GM parts that you hardly ever see laying around, and one of them was the big intake air hose to the engine.....found a PERFECT specimen! So it was a great trip to Sonora Truck Dismantlers!/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif On-the-rooooad-again........../wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif

The simple pleasures in life are great! Like me, Dave true happiness is getting something good real cheap. Think green-recycle car parts.

Cool finds, Dave ...
If those driveshafts don't work out I still have the front (CV) and rear D-shafts from the '77 CJ-7 w/258, TH400, & Q-Trac ... if that will help ... /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Those shafts were to make one good one for the front of our FS GM 3/4T FWD. Hmmmmmm........I'll have to remember that you have QT shafts, Jaffer.......that may come in handy/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Re: A visit to the junkyard...FOUND IT!

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif This yard is not the most showy operation, but the prices are very good. Yesterday I went back over and sure enough, the driveline was the exact one that our FS GM takes. I bought two shafts to get all the stuff I needed by combining them; they charged me $75 for the shafts and a cool chrome shift lever and real nice boot to fit our SM465 main transmission./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
