Re: [FWDLK] 1958 Plymouth tip of the day



I had an issue with my '58 Fury where it would stretch the straps when I'd bang second gear and the u joint caps would walk out a little causing a vibration, I put in a pair of Moroso aluminum u-joint cradles to replace the straps and then when banging second the nuts would pop off of the bolt that holds the cradle in place  leaving only the thread. Next was aircraft grade aluminum nuts, then I twisted the driveshaft, morale of the story is your drive train is only as strong as your weakest part. By the way, my Fury has a '68 426 Hemi/4 speed / 4.10 Dana, I'm not doing this damage with a 318 or a 350.

The rear u-joint on 1958 Plymouth is held in with 2 straps. Each strap is bolted in with 2 quarter inch bolts. This method does not hold up to alot of horsepower. This can be replaced with a later model yoke and u-bolts.
