U-Joints >:(

I got the shaft out no problem. Got the retaining clips out no problem.

Now the dern U-joints dont want to come out. Only thing I havent tried is torching them to try to get it to come out You guys have any secrets?

I've tried a c-clamp. Ive tried a drill press. Ive tried a rachet socket and a sledge hammer. They are soaking in PB over night right now. Would Torching the ends of the drive shaft be bad because of the specifications or will it not really move that much.

Any secrets are welcome. Thanks.

If you have a vise, thats what I always use. They come apart real easy. Big socket for the cap and a smaller one to push the other side through.... out in 3 seconds.
