(78 wagon) Ordered new axle U-joints, they come in tomorrow.
The FSM is a little vauge, are these going to be replaceable in the same way as, say, a typical driveshaft U-joint?
I mean, do I just undo the bolts and swap them out, or does this require the pulling of the whole axle etc. ?
(hoping I can do this by myself, but if an axle pull is required, I'm gonna need help:-\ )

if you are just redoing the u-joints no the axe does not have to come out, u-joints are very easy;)

if'n you need help, sure!
did you order the points and condenser?
see if there is some kind of a snap ring keeping the caps from coming off, that's how they should come out if no bolts
