My truck is NOT capable of running for more than 3 days are a time. finally got it back from getting all bearings and a hub in th erearend replaced, new calipers, new wheel cylinders, new brakes springs, shoes, pads, one new drum, and what happens? i take a left turn and try to get out in front of a car- i don't drop the clutch or anything- clutch is engaged completely, then i stomp it- first- both tires light up and i begin to get sideways, then bang, blew my rear CV up. thing is it's a slip yoke, and i haev no idea out to fix it. the thing that holds the ball in the middle it broken and i can't tell if i can replaced just that cylinder (on the slip yoke) this i think has something to do with my bent tailshaft- so i might be giving Jesse over at high angle a call about an SYE kit, then saving a little more, and gettin my shaft 'telescoped' and getting a 1350 or 1410 CV put on up top then rotating the rear end back up to the correct angle, raising the case back up, getting front shaft lengthened, and then gettnig my gears taken care of. Motor mods are out of the question until i'm full 1 ton. that 350 is rated low- i don't care at all what anyone says at all. without turning, earlier that day, with 3.73s, at a stop light i let the clutch out, THEN stomped it, and it SMOKED both 39s. . .i have an OPEN DIFF. no brake, i wasn't trying to to anything but accelerate fast, and wow. if i just got the carb tuned i might have some low end enough to start ok in 2nd (or 1st, whichever you prefer) gear of the SM465. i can do it fine now, but it just don't feel right. the vacuum advance ain't hooked up and i got no mufflers, and the carb thing, so i got very little low end until the secondaries cough open. Thought i'd vent and inquire about the CV.
