Taken off a drive shaft this week, just a little bit of wear to the knuckle.

And, yes, it was riveted with a knuckle pin :-)

Dan, that will definitely cause a klunk--when you throw it in the waste bucket!

Holy Smokes. Dan, was it that dry when you pulled it out, or did you clean it up?

Perfect for the ignore that noise and keep driving school of Model T maintenance.

Holy Hannah! Even this junktard mechanic knows that's just bad.
Perhaps even nasty shuddering during the shift with good clutches until hook-up?
Zoiks.

Put a little graphite and saw dust in your grease

Yikes ... that would make a hell of a noise. I might have something much better for free if you pay postage.

It's a clunker

Use thick grease and it will be good to go.

All it needs is a little JB Weld. :-)

Nice piece. Model Ts were rugged!

I found this one a year ago in the driveline of the car in my profile picture:

T original u-joints will run many many years.
Makes you wonder how many years the ones pictured were run. My Gramdfathers 24 coupe had one in it that was worn like the one in the last pic. Almost certain the rearend hadn't been out of the car since he bought it in 1942. I rebuilt the car and went through the whole drivetrain. That was around 5 years ago.

It looks like a perfect opportunity to tell the wife that you need to empty a beer can so you can use the metal as as a shim.
It might even take 2 or 3

That's how worn the one in my 26 coupe was it shuttered and made a clunk before the repair and has no shutter or clunk now.
