1983 GL ujoint?
Posted 13 August 2012 - 04:56 PM
been following for a while and finally need some usmb lovin
been rebuildin my 1983 GL wagon and have hit a small problem
my rear ujoint is rusted through and needs to be replaced. sooo, i am having trouble finding a replacement (figures ha!) does any one have any info on were to order one? or if the they would measure the same as the 1985+? i think the loayle meassures .867 and 1.400 but im not sure if this is the same for my 83? i know the napa near me has the older justy sized ujoints ( i think its .791 and 1.285) do you guys know if any of these will work for my wagon? or do i need to search else where ? not too many p&pulls in my area, ad not many scraps to choose from. i know rockforddriveline has good products but i dont think they man pre 85 products? i dunno, im lost.
any directions im sure would be helpful (photos to be posted after!!!!!!!)

As far as the drive shaft goes. an ordinary aerosol cap will fit near perfectly in the rear output of the transmission where the yoke of the drive shaft goes in.Just electrical tape it up. I havnt run my car like this but it will seal it up real good while the driveshaft is out.
NOTE: as soon as you pull the shaft from the tranny it will start leaking.
