Should my 205 do this?

    I can move the rear driveshaft up and down; it moves the yoke and output shaft of the t-case. It moves quite a bit and I think that may be why my new seal leaks. I can also move it in and out of the t-case. Is that common for these or does it need rebuilt?

    Ya, I guess that's some important info that I forgot. It has 3 fixed yokes; 1974 Dodge divorced case. The rear output is the one that move a lot.

    My best guess is you've either got a loose yoke nut, or a fried output bearing. The unit can have a little play in and out, but it shouldn't move up and down.

    It may be the bearing because I can see the threaded end of the shaft move up and down also. It also make somes noise when driving down the highway. It hard to explain what it sounds like, but if I let off the throttle it will quit until it gets some back force from the enigine compression, then it starts again.

    Is the bearing difficult to replace?

    That is not good. Call ORD and get the new bearing and info on anything else that you will need. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    they move around a fair bit
    the shafts are 30 years old, man.
    big sloppy roller bearings with a bunch of loose rollers on the snout, not precision

    Pull the bearing and find a bearing shop (more than an auto parts store) to see if it is bad. I thought I had a bad bearing in my 203 and upon inspection of a new on it acted just as sloppy.

    My Rockwell t-case did that...turns out about 1/2 the balls in the bearing had jumped ship /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
