well, driveshaft shit was a total bust. The econoline shaft I got at M&M had a small dent in it won’t balance out. The trans yoke is different, and so are the U-joint sizes. The mustang yoke apparently was shot anyway, the cups for the U-joints just spin in it anyways. luckily, I paid the extra $2 for warranty on the econoline shaft so I can return it…but it was the only one they had, and I don’t want to sit and wait for another to show up in the yard and the warranty is only 30days anyhow.
best case scenario, I’d be able to trade it out for one that isn’t dented, then would need a new yoke, conversion U-joint, and balance…which is about $165 or so.
Fleetpride can make me a custom shaft, brand new…with all new parts and u-joints, for $294 out the door. so I said do it.
once it’s done I can go return the econoline shaft to get my money back from M&M. guess I’m going saturday so I can get my money back and maybe grab the a/c box from the '76 F-150 there and hunt for a MAF. would be cool to have it wrapped up for sunday’s dyno day
