Title: A really silly question
Post by: R. Dave Carr on May 09, 2008, 07:16:17 AM
Guys, are our drive lines 2 piece or one piece?  Replaceable u-joints or throw away drive lines?
Title: A really silly question

1 Driveshaft, 2 replacable U-joints and yoke.
Although you could through everything away of course and buy new (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)

1 piece shaft.  As herman said 2 U-Joints.  I believe the Universal number is 415.

Thanks for the info guys.  For less than 100 bucks the drive line shop will install the u-joints in the car for me.  Not having a lift of my own to use, it makes life so much easier.

What do you mean Snotts?

He means the Imperial has more than one U-Joint.  It uses CV's like the Caderacks did.
 
The older Chryslers used a ball and trunion in the front.  Up to 64 there was a flange on the back of the trans.  That shaft had one joint on the back end.   They used that for years

Yes, beceause of the CVs, a typical Imperial uses four U-joints.
 
Thiose B&T units on the early cars, while expensive, served their purpose in a great way!  Even in a complete freeze-up, they will not allow a break on the front of the shaft.  If you've ever seen a car "pogo" on its drive shaft after a failed U-joint, you'd be glad to be driving with a B&T!

you'd be glad to drive with a B&T.......however, Snotty likes to drive with a BLT (with mayo)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

No, no, no!  If I'm driving and eating, it's either McDonalds or Jack-in-the-Box.  I never eat anything that might drop on me while driving.  Those two places make fairly ry burgers, so they're easy to eat!  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
 
HAve any of you ever tried to eat a TAco Bell taco while driving?  Yeouch!  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif)

I've never made a mess with a BLT...  what's wrong with you Snotty???
 
Hellmanns mayo is too good to waste on a T-shirt! (http://moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)

You've never seen my idea of a BLT.  It's bread, L, T, mayo, and a whole package of bacon....

it that's the way you like them, then you need to go to John's Burgers on F St.    most places put 1 or 2 strips of bacon on there, but these maniacs put about a 1/2 pound on it......dang it's good !

Lettuce?.......that's a vegetable Snotty, you might die!........I took a computer tech who was visiting to John's because he said he liked BLTs.......I said wait till you try this one......he said that was the best he ever had because they put 5 times more bacon on it than most places

I saw the most common causes of distracted driving and talking on a cell phone was 5th or 6th.......more people crash because they're
1.  Talking to other passengers
2.  Fiddling with the radio or CD
3.  Eating
4.  Putting on makeup

Maybe instead of "Whips" on the Speed Channel, they can have "Miracle Whip" if Snotty's on the show that week !(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

So if it's against the law to drive while talking on a cell phone (in Joisey now), what about at night in the dark? Or holding a transistor radio up to your ear? Or holding a bandage to a head wound while driving? Or how about just listening to a gabby wife on your cell....you can't possibly talk then.....
How will the average cop be able to stand in court and say "I saw him talking on the phone"?


Title: A really silly question
Post by: steve fogel on May 13, 2008, 07:02:24 AM
yeah, beginning July 1 here in CA, you'll get a $20 ticket fer talkin on a hand held.......they've shown that people blabbing on the phone drive just as bad as somebody who's had 4 brewskis.........

yesterday I saw some broad talking on the phone AND putting on makeup at the same time with the visor mirror down.........now you ask why your insurance premiums are so high?(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
Title: A really silly question
Post by: steve fogel on May 13, 2008, 07:07:04 AM
I think causes of crashes 5 thru 10 were
 
5. Drunk
6. Schnockered
7. Soused
8. Boozed up
9. Smelled like a brewery

In order to bring this thread back on track, I had the u-joints done yesterday at the driveline shop.  Cost was $70.94 for both to be replaced!   Guys, can we try to keep the posts somewhat on track so that our search archives won't be full of posts that don't relate to the search topic?

Oh, did you thell them Steve?  Fogel and I went to John's in East BAkersfield in his Hemi GTX - I was driving. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gif)  However, do you know how embarrasing it is to climb into a Hemi GTX, then get out and push it to jump start it in front of the people erating at John's????
