When you find Bob Sweet ask to see his old 60's drag race photos from Ohio, he ran a Topolino. Bobs 84 and was a swap vendor at LA Roadster show this year, it's in his blood.

Tim, I could send you a very good, but slightly used, USA made "U" joint. I buy a good number of top and side load EFV-8 transmissions, and many of them have good used "U" joints attached. If you are interested, send me a Fordbarn PM or Email.

Likewise, Tim, I have an NOS one I could overnight to you if you can't find one locally. I've PM'd you with contact details.

No pictures. The u joint started to rub on the inside of the clamshell cover. It was just noise, but not knowing what it was, I wanted to fix it while we has access to a garage full of good tools. It's all back together now I just need to check fluid levels in the diff and trans.
Thanks again to you guys and Fordbarn for the quick parts locating services. One more flathead on the road again!

How did you lube the U joint as it was going back together and what lube did you use? Just curious.
