Yesterday a mate and I spent about 3 hours extracting a drive shaft from a basket case housing. Only to find that the thing is bent.
What a waste of time that was.
Now the search begins for another.

Is it bent too bad to try straightening it?

What have you done Rob, your oil thread for the diff said you re-assembled the final drive, have you done this with out the drive shaft for setting the right back lash?

All sorted now.
We pressed out the bend. It wasn't as bad as I'd first thought because it'd been machined off center to the casting.
Anyway, its all re-assembled and seems to be OK.
