Ok Im out driving today around town and I start to hear a funny sound. When I let off the gas pedal driving about 35-40 MPH Im getting a funny high pitch squeel. Metalic like something just slightly rubbing on a moving part. I can only hear it on de-acceleration.
I get home and crawl under to take a look and the first thing I notice is the U-joint behind the T-case has some funny fresh silver rubbing marks. The End caps that are the ones under the bolted horseshoe collar. You can see the outer end of the cap is rotating and is leaving a fresh metal ring where it is rubbing on a small section of the casting on the yoke. It is my understanding that when the U-joint is clamped down in the yoke assembaly, that the cap its holding on to does not move, only the inside of the U-joint is what moves?
Is this a common Ford part? Can I get a new one with grease jerks? Does anyone have a part number for me.
Also the bigger ends of this u-joint is held on with big c-clips is there a special tool to have to get thses off?
Yippie!! I figured out how to load a picture!!
The other side of the u-joint looks the same.
