"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…"
"If Louie just needs the rear section they are not that bad to ship especially UPS. The specs for these are : Rear Section 39 1/2" long and 28 lbs. Packed they are about 32 lb and need a box about 42" x 8" x…"

Hello everyone. I had a perfectly good shifting Hydra-Matic transmission until I elected to fix the leak at the dip stick tube. I just did a quick seal with gasket maker since my current tube is…Continue
Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed. Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue
Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…
I was successful in getting a vehicle from the New York contact I talked about at the last club meeting. I am still trying to figure out how to post a picture of the vehicle that is tied with this comment so if you see a random picture of a black convertible in a yard, that's me haha. …
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.
