    Default U-Joints

    I was just doing a few things on the boat and started to grease the u-joints and noticed that they were loose. They look easy enough to replace but just wanted to ask before i got started. And is there any one type of you joint to use? Thanks Travis

    Take the coupler with you and buy the heaviest duty ones you can fit.

    Any good driveline place, or a good parts store (like the guys @ NAPA) can hook you up with the joints.

    X2 Travis. Don't know what driveline you have but here's a number that maybe they can cross reference and get started researching.

    GMB 215-0153

    Have em pull one that cross references with that and compare it to what you have now.

    Good luck.........john

    On mine I LOOSEN the u-bolts but leave them just snug, then take the 4 bolts out to separate the 2 halves, remove the u-bolts completely and kind of work the back half out. It is a little like a puzzle, and you have to turn the back half to weasel it out, but it is do able.
    You will have to rotate the crank by hand a couple times to get the bolts out, depending on shaft angle.
    Then remove the PTO bolts from the flange in the bell housing.
    I could not do it last year, but when I had it apart I had .075 faced off of the PTO adapter. It made JUST enough room to allow me to get it out.
