    I need a new one, and would like to have the shop put it in while it's there (for inspection/electrical work/brakes) my old tailshaft was bent pretty bad and causes real bad leaking out of the slip yoke and the vibes are unbearable, truck feels like it's about to break. where can i get one? what should i tell them to look up at the part store, what's the real name? it's a NP241 tailshaft.

    funny how i just finished a tranny swap (auto-manual) yet i feel the need to take it to a shop to wire up taillights and windshield wipers and do my brakes

    ok they're tuning the carb too. . . .and i've got to borrow some cats and mufflers to stick on there long enough to pass inspection. . .

    Dude, I'd never take my truck anywhere to have some moron work on it.

    i know the guy, thanks, and he's really good. and whether or not you believe it, there are many good mechanics out there, better than you or me. some sucks, ok yeah, but many are very good, they are trained professionals, so i rather resent that seeing as it is a career i'm pursuing.

    [/ QUOTE ] I'm with you on that, some are morons but you have to filter through and find a really good shop because there is some stuff that I can't do. I rebuilt and R&R'ed my new 406 but that is really pretty easy but stuff like setting up gears and automatic tranny rebuilding, I leave to the experts because of lack of experience and SPECIALTY TOOLS. Everything else is pretty cut and dry. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Electrical is really easy, it's just frustrating at times to work on.
