Default Re: U-joint Play

Mine was a helluva lot worse than that one when I finally replaced it. The two riveted halves were looser, and the bearing surface on one shaft was nearly half gone. It was all caused because I didn't realize just how much of the right kind of grease those things need.

I now carry the worn out one in my trunk for show-and-tell when people ask about repairs and maintenance.
