...tunnel. How To..? Do I dare try this . jackstands, neutral, eyeware, I have a vise , and sockets for the u-joints. both u-joints are tight no play, I have 1" of play at the center support bearing, I have the HB206FF Bearing & Support it has the 2 bolts on the bottom of tunnel. vertical .. unbolt at the flange in rear pull tword rear remove 2 support bolts and pull from trans then out the front of tunnel? both ends painted and marked. is this even close ? remove both u joints or just one ? or none? Help
I think it's $150 you think I should pay 150 to have some one put in a couple u-joints?
I think once those support bolts snap off I'm good to go. I have a breaker bar with 6 points I would twist those right off in 2 secs Right 8 retaining clips for u-joints are nothing major.
I beleive this bearing slides on right over the spines, maybe it is pressed on . I havn't got in there yet. I think it's the same set-up as a 409 or 1962 corrvette
I see . Thanks any more info would be great I'm good at the hard stuff , it's the easy stuff I have a hard time with. I'm curious to know how they seperate to get the bearing on. another Clip? would it be easier to pu 2 new u-joints I don't think that's my problem ..my support bearing cushion is toast. I can push the shaft up over 1" why would i need to remove the rear u-joint when I can just unscrew the 2 rear flange bolts ?
ohh I see the flange won't make it through the tunnel okay...ok I think this 2 piece driveshaft all has to come out the front< of the tunnel Correct???
I have a service garage down the street , Once I remove the whole drive shaft out, I'll bring the whole thing down there ,and have them press out the old and press in a new, the rest should be easy I hope. I can install a water pump in a Honda but can't install a driveshaft & u-joints? is this chevy? This is Krazy Man. I'm sorry this is my 1st Chevrolet

You are following the right path, and I do believe they are pressed on.

If you have never done this job before now is not a good time to be the first time. Let a experienced mechanic do the job.
