Hello all, this is my first post. I was given a 47 deluxe special a few months back from my wife's uncle, and I have enjoyed taking it on. This car is very foreign to me but it's been fun. I consider myself good at working on cars boy I don't know a darn thing about this baby.
Anyway, the car has a really bad vibration over 35/40 and after looking everything over, I see that the rear of the drive shaft has what I have researched and found to be a ball and trunion style. The boot is ripped and I can grab the drive shaft and wiggle it left to right a good 1/2". I'm guessing that's not how it should be unless I don't understand the design beyond the boot rip itself.
My question to you fine folks is what's the best method of attack? Should I try to find the parts to rebuild or is there an upgrade to a better ujoint style setup? I've looked around and can't really find anything online as far as parts so if you have a suggestion, if you'd be so kind as to let me know where and what to get I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks all! I spent the day cleaning her up and she came out really nice.
