Quote from: Big Fins on June 17, 2022, 03:11:37 PM$900 seems out of line to me, but you are in Kommiefornia. A complete rebuild and balance of one of those drive shafts should be no higher than $500 on the outside.I paid $350 for my last one in a '59.

Quote from: Cape Cod Fleetwood on June 18, 2022, 01:53:35 AMIt was $600 for a rebuild/rebalance on my 70 shaft last year. Parts were scarce and pricey then...If its a reputable shop, pay the money and get it done right. Assuming the tranny was rebuilt and not just a newrear seal?
Quote from: BigSky on June 20, 2022, 11:30:50 AMThe tranny was not rebuilt. Everything was shifting great just some leaking from the seals and speedo area. The shop is resealing everything while the driveshaft shop is rebuilding. Should I be rebuilding the tranny if everything was shifting good? What is the concern there? Thanks
Quote from: Cape Cod Fleetwood on June 20, 2022, 12:35:05 PMThe concern is the car is 53 and parts don't last forever. The guys are already 'there', do you know if the tranny has been done already? It doesn't take long and its not that expensive to have done, one less thing to worry about. If seals are leaking, other parts are wearing as well. Do you have the fluid and filter changed regularly?
