Thanks for the latest tip, Dave. However, if a press is needed to remove old universal joints from their yokes, I'll put that off for another time as this old retiree don't have access to such equipment. I was under the impression, if I had to change them, I could simply remove the retaining snap rings and pound the crapola out of them with a hammer and punch till they broke free. Oh, well. ;-) On the bright side, the factory originals on my '63 have only a little over 79,000 original miles under their belts, just like the rest of the car! Hardly ever driven and always garaged.
