Just do a search on "Driveshaft operating angles".

I was wondering if that stud is actually a modified bolt. You could knock the head down, double nut it and see if it will back out. This probably won't work but it's worth a try. Just don't use any...

Re: 1950 F1 door won't open...

Do you have any holes in the firewall near the floorboards? If so, a piece of bailing wire (for pulling) or a 1/4 inch dowel ( for pushing) might do the trick. Good luck.
