Hint.......if you use a torch and heat the caps and/or the cross, the grease in there heats up and will "blow" the caps off.

ROFLMAO!!!! did that... they just burbled.. did nothing... sprayed em with wd40... then roasted it... they just laughed at me... that press was banging and clanging every time the cap would break loose and get stuck again...



didnt feel when that happened... but assuming it was when the blocks slipped out and everything went flying from the 20 ton press...

my vice doesnt open wide enough... my s10's shaft was smaller and couldnt even fit it in there... that one i partially did with ball joint press... breaker bar... and 4 foot pipe on the breaker bar... somehow i think i would have needed a 10 foot one for this ones...

Tapping on the side of the joint applys shock while you are putting pressure with the press. They usually break loose a little easier.

didnt think of doing that... when i was trying to cut the slits to put the prybars in they wouldnt even turn... which i tried a pipe wrench before that to twist them.. was surprised how tight they were...

ty.. i like that paint will stop it from rusting more.. and also protects it... one thing people dont think about with the drivetrain is the driveshaft... over time the rust falls off.. and can lead to an unbalance shaft... why you sometimes have to get them rebalanced.. other reason being the weight falls off...

plus in the process i discovered that some point in the past someone set that shaft down on something harder than the shaft was... near where the cardian joint was theres a pretty good dent in the side of the pipe... least enough to make a flat point in the shaft... wondering what they did to get the dent there...
