This isn't something that should be advised on line.

You might need a 2 piece drive shaft with a carrier bearing, or a single piece might work.

You'll need to take into consideration the length of the spline (either @ the tail shaft of the transmission or @ the carrier bearing) to make sure there is sufficient spline length to allow for the lengthening and shortening of the overall length as the rear axle moves up and down with the increase or decrease in spring loading. Also need to be aware (on a vertical plane) of the relative parallelism of the transmission output shaft and the differential input shaft.

This one can bite you big time if you don't do all your homework!

In any event, you'll probably be better of if you engage the services of a professional drive line shop in your area.

Good luck!

Ujoint


Depends on where it is located. If its on the drive shaft for the rear wheels the cost will be lower than the ones on the front wheels. Shop around. Drive line shops specialize in them but any good mechanic can do it.

Just replaced rear joint on my 1997 Chevy 1500 4x4 (5.7L). Went down the road and the caps on the joint that are tightened by the four bolts popped out. I did put in the clamp rings but they still popped...


There should be clips in the grooves on the caps that are held in by the drive shaft straps.All ujoint caps either have a clip in a groove or a snap ring clip on top that fits into a groove on the drive shaft yoke.These clips not only help keep the ujoint front spitting the caps out they also center the ujoint in the yoke on the rear axle.If you dont have a clip groove then you may have the wrong ujoint.Look closely at the old ujoint and you should see what I mean.Good Luck!

89 F250 460 door sticker says trans code "k" what


Transmission Types : Ford E4OD/4R100, 4 Speed, Automatic Transmission
Comments: w/ Shallow Pan = 20 bolt holes 4 speed

Drive Trains : Four Wheel Drive
Transmission Types : Ford C6, 3 Speed, Automatic Transmission =17 bolts 3speed

What does the dash indicator say and does the stick have an od button on it? there is only 1 3 speed for the 460 and only 1 4speed for the 460

Engines:{300, 302, 351w}, {400, 351m, 460}, {6.9L, 7.3L IDI}, {352, 360, 390, ect.}
Fluid:
Pre '77: Type F

Display: PRND21
Pan 17 bolts "Utah" shape
Ratios:
1st 2.46:1
2nd 1.46:1
3rd 1.00:1
Trans code: K

so you should have the 3 speed acording to the code

How do you remove a transmission out of a 1995 Lincoln town car. The engines a 4.6


1 jack car up far enough to work under car use jack stands to support care during work for safety
2 Disconnect all fluid lines and electrical wires.
3 Disconnect trans from engine leave one bolt loosen on right and left side
4 place floor jack trans for support
5 disconnect drive shaft from transmission (there are two point in this process disconnect from rear axle housing an slide the drive line out from trans if this does not work disconnect drive line ujoint closes to trans also
6 Disconnect any trans linkage and supports remove bolts from
trans engine connection while supporting the trans with floor jack. while removing trans pull backward and be aware that the toque converter is in the front housing of trans and will fall out if front of trans is facing to far downward.
I recommend you use an auto manual to read up on this process before taking it on.

Theres play in my front drive shaft. I dont know if its the u joint or the rear end going into the transfer case. what is the most in expensive way to fix problem. problem is when braking accasionally feel...


the cheapest way would be to remove the front driveshaft I guess... This will give you opportunity to inspect the Ujoints too!
If it is only a Ujoint... you can replace the Ujoint and shaft when you have the money to do so...
