I got this truck on Memorial Day weekend. After a few hours of cleaning connectors & replacing connectors I finally got it running.
I got a chance to drive it the following weekend to find there to be a bad vibration above 40mph. I looked under truck to find that the drive shaft center support bearing was bad, the rear diff pinion had lots of free play, but worst of all was that the transmission was missing about 2" of the tall stock (no seal).
So I started the tear down to find that the drive shaft would not slip off the transmission, so I cut the slip yoke in half.
I purchased a center support bushing & bearing, rebuilt the rear end, got a 4spd trans from a friend.
Installed all the parts & the vibration was gone!
Pics to come. sorry.
