DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
Driveshaft
The driveshaft is the means of transferring power from
the engine to the differential in the rear axle and then
to the rear wheels. The two piece driveshaft
incorporates a flexible coupling at the transmission
end (with or without a slip flange) followed by the
centre bearing, universal joint and a constant velocity
joint with the ability to plunge. The single piece
driveshaft incorporates a slip yoke and two universal
joints mounted at each end. The driveshaft
components allow longitudinal and lateral movement
of the driveshaft assembly due to engine movement
and differential housing movement.
CAUTION: All driveshafts are balanced. If the
vehicle is to be undercoated, cover the driveshaft
to prevent application of the undercoating
material.
Universal Joints
The driveshaft universal joints are:
1. a lubed-for-life design that requires no periodic
lubrication.
2. equipped with nylon thrust washers, located at the
base of each bearing cup, which control end play,
position the needle bearings and improve grease
movement.
