I worked on the rear end while I was there and got it ready to install it when we take it off the rotisserie.
I changed the gear oil, checked all the bearing including the axle shaft bearings. It looks like someone had put in some new bearing sometime in it life. There were sealed bearing installed and I don’t think that was original. I think they originally had a bearing and race. They all seemed good and there was no back lash in the rear end. I put on a new rear cover seal and added new gear oil and limited slip additive.
I installed the leaf springs, all new brake shoes and hardware. We should be ready to roll it under the car when we are ready for it.
I tried installing new universal joints in the drive shaft and ran into an issue. It appears the drive shaft might have been swapped out with a beefier driveshaft. The original drive shaft required 1310 3.219 1.062 All 4 caps. my drive shaft is requiring a 1330 3.622 1.062 All 4 caps. The rear yoke requires the original 1310 u-joint. So I had to stop and come home with the drive shaft hoping I can find one to work. After long day searching Sunday, I was able to find the Neapco 3-3130 and it appears it will work. I have to re press the correct u-joints the next trip to Princeton.
