ok well the beast is up and running again, I was so excited I was about to mess my britches. Anyway, plan was to drive down the street and around the back and put the top in the back yard. WELL AS ALL GOES WITH THESE OLD TRUCKS got to the end of the street after having gunned it all the way down, turned and felt funny, went to turn in the alley and the wheel just span. the rag joint fell apart. Just glad it didn't happen on the highway or in town driving. Anyway Point is Who was it on here that did the conversion of putting a solid U joint in place of the rag joint? And is it still functioning well or should I go back to the floppy rag joint? Did a search and couldn't find the post.
