My neighbors kid has a 75 1 ton 4x4 extended cab flat deck. One piece rear driveshaft. He busted it in half
and I said I would fix it for free since he helps me out sometimes. He got another driveshaft for it but the u-joint caps are too small and I noticed there were no dogs on either side of the yokes to keep the u-joint centered. So I'm hoping to buy the right u-joints. I have the busted rear driveshaft but all the caps are missing. The "right" u-joints... do they use inner c-clips to keep them centered in the yokes? I was hoping to buy some u-joints that would be correct for this other d.s. or weld the old one together but I'd still need u-joints for it. I have lots of old u-joints kicking around. The kid was thinking of welding some pieces of flat bar to either side of the yokes to keep the u-joints centered
. Can anyone tell me the diameter of caps to use, or a catalog lordco #, etc, etc. Figured I should do some research before I walk into the stores in town.
