    Nope, haven't tried that yet. I've tried white lith, wheel bearing, some sythethic moly, but no marine.
    Thanks for the E-mail

    That's what I did - Drilled/tapped a 5/16" hole and put a zerk in it.

    I'm not creative enough to comeup with a new signature [​IMG]

    Mine's about 1/2" above the knuckle on the yoke itself. It's got 3-3 1/2" travel before it will hit anything.

    What's the effect of all that grease running down into the transfer case? Is it bad? With it affect the fluid in there?

    I've never had a problem with it. I use Mystik JT6 High Temperature grease, and haven't noticed any adverse effects.

    I would think that the syntrifical force would keep the grease slung to the rear, well, at least with lowered T-cases. I think Im loosing most of my grease through that little seep hole in the end of my slip yoke. I may try sealing that hole with some JB and see what happens.

    If your talking about a "clunk" or "shudder" off the line or when comeing to a stop- I know what your talking about.

    I don't know what the tsb# is or The p/n for the grease. But I know the grese is expensive, something like $50 for a tube of it. I think its a 50/50 shot to weather or not it fixes it. So far I haven't had any come back that I know of, but that doesn't mean that they didn't come back and go to one of our heavy liners.

    The grease zerk sounds like a good idea, I like it. I don't think a little zerk fitting would put the yoke out of balence, and if you put it on the tail end of the yoke it should clear. But I think the type of grease needs to be considered. Nothing gritty, like graphites. I think there might be a compatibility prblem with XXXXX (i can't rember the proper name for it, but it is soap based) So that would leave you with some kind of oil based wheel bearing grease or a synthetic grease.

    Pluging weep holes is generaly not a good idea. Weep holes keep the seals from blowing out and let them breath when the get hot. Weep holes (on tail shaft seals) should be located on top, or slightly to the side.

    This is what Im trying to fix. I'll try the marine waterproof grease next. Then go from there. I should have the money for the fixed yoke kit here in the next month or so.
