Title: 727 Tailshaft
Post by: Brian on January 13, 2010, 08:31:29 AM




I've pulled the tailshaft on the 727 in the wagon. I'm replacing the
bushing to try and eliminate the last of the vibrations coming from the
drive line.



I've removed the bushing and now need to install the new one.  Any thoughts on how to do this?

Try the back side of a large socket with an extension on it.  Put the extension on the inside of the socket and work it backwards.

Hmmmm.  Maybe this is the source of a minor vibration I'm getting.

Steve - I'm always amazed, as in this case, of your knowledge of these
kind of issues, dealing with some really esoteric mechanical
circumstances... so, were you a factory trained mechanic, or the worlds
luckiest world class guesser!!

Nah   I'm very logical and have done that same thing numerous times before.  Of coarse, now I have a bushing driver kit.  Ask Leaburn what he used to put a rear axle bushing in with.  Well maybe he got to use my seal driver kit on that.  It was new.
 
You'd be amazed what you can make with pieces of pipe too.  Ever need t change your upper control arm bushings?

Experience obviously counts!

In my case, I know just enough to be dangerous... or more precisely, to get myself in deep poo.

I have learned a lot by reading posts like these tho'.(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
