Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
I have a 2000 model 150 Series Ford Transit SWB van. It is a diesel unit with manual transmission.
A noise has developed over the last coup[le of mpnths, which I attributed to a wheel bearing. This does not seem to be the cause. I checked the tailshaft and found one of the universal joints was a little resistant (stiff). As Ford no longer supply replacement tailshaft assemblies, I was able to get a reasonable one from a motor wrecker.
The replacement unit still makes some noise, although at a different speed range.I believe the issue is the tailshaft support bracket (which is why I checked the tailshaft assembly in the first place).
I have now organised a new support bearing, but cannot figure out how to separate the two elemnts of the talshaft to fit the new bearing. I removed the brass (?) hex head screw, washer and keeper from my original shaft, but could not see how the two shaft elements would be separated.
Does anyone have any good ideas?
Hope to hear from you,

Are you talking about a cintrifical velosity joint. you should take this problem to a driveshaft repair co.
If you are hard up on doing it yourself then know that both opposing u-joints must come out at the same time. there are two shims and a strong spring between the two u-joints. It will be 2 to 4 times harder for you to assemble the shaft then to take it apart. Good luck.
