Question about 1965 Chevrolet Corvette
Actually a relatively easy job as both the front and rear universal joints are held on with straps and bolts. Assuming the car is safely in the air and not going to roll away, first mark a line on the differential yoke and on the driveshaft so you can reinstall it in the same position. Repeat this procedure at the front end of the driveshaft at the transmission yoke.
Next remove the 4 bolts and 2 straps that hold the front universal joint into the transmission yoke, then you can lightly pry the universal toward the rear of the car and free it from the yoke. Have a prepared place to lower the front of the shaft on such a small piece of plywood or something to prevent it from being damaged. Also take care not to remove the yoke from the transmission to prevent fluid loss, even if you need to temporarily tie the yoke in place.
Next remove the 4 bolts and 2 straps that hold the rear universal joint into the differential yoke, then you can lightly pry the universal toward the front of the car and free it from the yoke.
Thats all! Good luck and totally enjoy one of the best cars ever built!
