Here's the image where the centering cone should go, has about a 3 ft shaft with stock universals. The lower flange us broken off at the Auxillary trans and the top 2 bolts are sheared off as well. Seems to drive well has about many miles in it, you would nit notice anything unless you visually looked close. This is why I would like to replace with another type of shirt shaft. Or any ideas. ? And maybe use a center support bearing. No image. Too large. Verrucas I'll email it

Image was to large they say. I'm just going to repair it with a new style u joint and shaft Heck my brush hog runs a long shaft with no support has a real u joint not a T type primitive . No need for the t cone plate

Steve,
The problem with having the rear housing broken is not with the shaft or u joint. That bell coupling locates the rear end in the truck. It is responsible for transferring all the forces generated by the rear end, such as acceleration and braking, to the rest of the vehicle. Without it all the force is absorbed by the rear spring and shackles, which they were never designed to withstand. Failure of those parts would leave your rear end behind you in the street, which could buy you the trouble trophy on a club tour. Not something you want.
Erik
