"Yeah its at a specialty driveline shop right now. Its not repairable. They're making a completely new driveshaft now but I'd like to have the original. "

"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…"

"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…"

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

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.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

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. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

Thank you Kurt re: VIN location

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.
