Replacing "staked" driveshaft universals

Postby Datto_610 » Wed Mar 14, 2012 10:37 pm

I bought an R31 driveshaft for my 180B project in the weekend and Bart pointed out that they are the "non rebuildable" staked universals. I have done a bit of research and turns out they can be rebuilt! Well replaced with the universal joints that are held in by clips.

Here is a link to the article I found: http://www.rockforddriveline.com/Staked ... ctions.htm

I also watched a view vids on youtube of a guy doing it who also quotes this website, so its definitly possible. I'm not sure if anyone already knew this but I'm posting it on here so others who didn't know now do. :D
