Hi all

Ok next on the Dodge search list, I need a propshaft universal joint.
Dimensions are:

4 3/4" across the widest point (yoke)
1 5/8" diameter of the cups

So far we've only turned up metric equivalents, which will require machining to make 'em fit (), so ideally I'd like to find a straight replacement part, if possible??????? I've contacted Vintage Power Wagons in the US, in case any of those models use the same part. I've also emailed a number of propshaft repairers in the UK, but really I need someone who has a dusty shed with nice imperial old stock sat on a shelf!

ta, Rick

Rick,

Have a look at http://www.spicerparts.com/heritage.asp and contact them as the odds are that they made the OE joint and may still make an equivalent one. You know how they hate metric over the pond.
