Whos part # are you looking for?  I just get the spicer u joints for Catco locally.  Spicer # 5-799x Which is what corvette used on steel half shafts, if I recall.




That's right as I used them on the Vega shaft and have that same # in my files =;  =; You can get that joint at any Napa store...Remember they have the "good stuff" \:D/  \:D/  \:D/

FYI, That 1350 Spicer joint #5-799x crosses over at NAPA as their part number 331 and it's a regularly stocked item here at our local store.  List price is $16.99

Called Roanoke Spring Works today and they don't do driveshafts any more??  Also called Truck Body Corp here in town and their guy never called me back??  Dayum!!  And I thought ppl were hurting for work??  Obviously not, hey!

I was thinking NAPA # was 330 or 331 but its not made by Spicer.  The NAPA rep said there u-joint are made by Rayloc.  Not sure if there are any good :-k

TBC will definately have a source to make the shaft.  When I was selling commercial GMC trucks when I first retired from the airline we used TBC for several truck bodies.  More often than not the truck chassis must be shortened which means a shortened drive shaft.  They do this kind of stuff every day.

I'd call them again.

I got mine here.  

http://truckbodyco.com/

$55 labor plus parts, which will be about 38 inches of 3.5 dia tube and two 1350 weld yokes.  I'll have less than $140 in it when I pick it up.  Got two new U joints yesterday that were $32.  

They (TBC) have done some work for me in the past and also Roanoke Spring Works has done some but RSW doesn't have a machinist right now so TBC will make it and I'll have to carry it to Roanoke to have it balanced.  

We'll be ready for some testing afte Christmas, weather permitting.   ;-)

That's not a bad price Mark/Scott.  I won't have that much in mine but I'm not raplacing the slip yoke either.
