A quick question regarding the drive shaft on a '63 Coupe. I got a project that was missing the drive shaft and have sourced one locally. It is originally out of a '63 Sedan. I believe they are the same but I can't find rock solid confirmation regarding this. If anyone can confirm I would appreciate it.
Yes Greg, it'll work. Only the CC and series 75 are different (longer). If you can , check that the CV joints have some wobble to them, otherwise they're worn out and would need replaced..
Thanks for the response. You've confirmed what I was 99% sure on. I'm glad I was right (for once!). I already have a full set of U-Joints. I figure it's already out of the car so I may as well do it now.
Hi Greg, as long as you are going to disassemble the drive shaft to install the new U-joints, you should also get the ball socket kits and special synthetic grease for the two ball sockets on the CV joints. Be sure the ball is round and not grooved or egg shaped. You probably already know to mark each joint and section so you can reassemble everything in the same location.
