Now you know how Corbet felt when he asked about sliders

I was really just more interested in knowing if you tried that needle deal and prefaced my response so...But, you know what they say about opinions

No you gave me the answer to the wrong one.

The right one would have been

You should check to see if your Zircs are just plugged and make sure you replace them with 6mm


I could not find a right angle at 6, but but I couldn't even put grease in with the shaft removed so I replaced the zircs on both U joints and it seems ok. I did not try and fill the front again after I got it back on. The right angle would slide on, but not all the way. So I may still need to find a right angle or just pull the shaft every time.

I'm good through the summer though. Needed to get it greased prior to this summers events

I have exactly the same problem and since I never saw anyone post about it I assumed that I was a big dummy. In quiet shame I always pulled the shaft to grease the front joint.


Thank you for posting

Steve is right; by your description the u-joint was installed wrong (like they did for me at Englewood Driveshaft :-(

I have assortments of both metric and SAE zircs and can't remember which fits cruiser - cruisers do have SAE fittings. Examples include national pipe threads on oil and cooling lines on engines.

Ken - Did you ever find a metric zirc locally? I broke one off of my shackle this weekend. I tried a 1/4" replacement (from Ace), but it didn't fit. I'm thinking its M6, but Ace didn't have any metric fittings.

Matt - my offer stands for you, too. I already have assorted metric zerks. If you can wait until next meeting, I'll be happy to hook you up.
