    well the d-shaft dropped again, i changed the u joints last week. im bringing it back to the guy who built my d-shaft and sold me these joints...

    anyways to my question... ive been told ujoints should be pressed in... the ones this guy gave me can be pushed in by hand... are my yokes fried or what... when the shaft dropped it damages the output shafts on the 12b and the 203... anyone know where i can get new ones cheap? thanks

    yeah - u joints shouldnt go in by hand. your yokes on the driveshaft are shot man looks like its time for a new one. if not it will continue to sling the shaft. later Ryan
