I'm a big fan of the MTFCA axle book. But I'm a skeptic on one part. It says I should assemble the drive shaft and install the U-joint pin, THEN apply sealant to both ends of the spool. As they might say Down Under, not bloody likely, mate. Once the thing is pinned together, I don't see how I'm going to have enough space to spread anything on the front end of the spool. Am I misreading something?
Steve it would be really tough to get sealant after assembling the u joint. Must be a typo.
