"Why do you think your driveshaft is not repairable? Take yours to a reputable shop having the CV-joints rebuilt and the shaft re-balanced (ask for it to be painted at same time). It will be as good as new and takes care of all vibrations and…"
"Dont worry about undercutting anyone. You charge what you think is fair. I charge 50.00 for the front section, and 100.00 fir the good rears.
I'm not trying to pay my bills with these parts. It is just more car money for me, or…"
"Louie, . I noticed from posts with Jason's video that Manuel Cerda had his driveshaft repaired by Driveline Specialties in Whittier ..Post was in 2016 and he said it was done about 10 years earlier. Might want to check into that ..."
"You can usually tell if the rear driveshaft section is really good if those CV joints have a lot os spring in them once out of the car and you rotate by hand. A good tight one will fight you.. a worn our one will just flop around loose. You…"
" Louie, the rear CV joint does wobble, is original, (has the little hard plastic tits). Came out of my parts car (6329) Bought in Mar 2005. Just checked odometer .shows 96881 miles, brake pedal looks like hasn't turned…"
"Thanks guys, yes I just need the rear section. Jason would be the expert as far as what they go for. I've asked both Jason and Russ, and called around to some places. There are a couple out there but it seems to be a gamble as to the…"

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.
I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.
With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.
Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off.
