Hi, Agree , Rich,
All this info on driveshaft upgrade is on Bob’s fantastic 300 site ,— I apologize for henscratch sketches I made while doing it, but info is there on the Denny’s Driveshafts form . Denny is terrific , have done 4-5 shafts with him , no problems, first class outfit who has helped 300 guys ( me) a lot —and he has the bolt on part you need to adapt your new shaft to the 4 brake drum bolts. ( caution , two sizes ours is the larger, —or better —to match data on form) We first saw this part via our Canadian friends, JY and Pierre , ; I had tried to make it , before I met Pierre who occasionally fixes Winnebago , he and JY gave me a damaged one. We found out Winnebago used it into 70’s to keep the mopar e brake design on 727 . A spicer part!
So pick which length fits your car , both lengths are in there , buy shaft and part from Denny . Mention club , it helps all
Of us . Each one he makes is going to be that much better . Does not need your old one ,3” end to end all new.
While on this , recently I could no longer find tiny toy rear joint used 57-59 , the one with bolt wings on bearing . “ winged joint” . Denny can provide a new pinion yoke for 8 3/ 4 about 120$ lets you use later common large Mopar U joint in back . Aka “Dodge joint” . Driveshaft side “ tangs” are the same size for both U joints , on drive shaft side of it . Small Rear joint in 57-59 gets flat spots on the cross , too weak . = Vibration .
Front joint , IMHO a sad joke . Not only the rubber boot , but divots wear into outer housing , wear pockets at same place , pin centering and the little shoes have to fit like perfect center to .0005 ( good for 30k Miles ?) or else you get chronic vibration at 60-75 mph . Forget all that hassle .1930’s design , obsolete even in 57 .
Vibration fight was why I got rid of it . Every F I had vibrated more or less. A joy now , zero vibration .
Should not be any demerits for a better thing , (but that is outa my pay league.)
