Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

You're welcome. Glad you got the u-joints replaced. I just hope the diff even has oil in it! :shock: :mrgreen:

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

Glad to hear it turned out okay. Keep an eye on that pinion yoke for a leaky seal. My son's LUV had a bad seal. The Chevy dealer where he worked after school took that nut off, replaced the seal, and reinstalled the yoke. I don't know how tight they put the nut on but it was fine. I'm thinking about...

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

Um... if the pinion yoke is a bit loose, it's not a huge cause for alarm. Double-check your mechanic's diagnosis. I've seen several of the pups (2 of them my own) rear pinion nut get loose and fixing it is just a matter of carefully tightening the big nut back up inside the pinion yoke. It'll have t...

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

Changing u-joints on a pup was my least favorite job to do on a pup.

Yes, i did what Jerry suggested and it fixed the popping clang when taking off from a dead stop especially just after having used reverse.

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

Jack up one rear wheel w tranny in neutral. Chock the other tires. Rotate the one wheel which will turn the driveshaft. Listen for creaking sounds. Personally, my hunch is u-joints, but the popping-clang sound(my truck did it too) I discovered by talking to Jerry Lemond one day is likely due to the ...

Re: Transmission installation

What Oldestisuzuist said. The way I'd do mine (probably not text book) was to adjust the cable so that the throwout bearing was close to the pressure plate but not touching it. Whenever the bearing touches the pressure plate, it rotates the bearing (engine running). Driving around with your foot res...

Re: Transmission job.

I'll say this... before draining the oil from the transmission, pre-loosen the filler plug. They're usually super tight, so find a short stubby metric socket and breaker bar. Be sure you loosen it, otherwise you'll have to measure out your oil, remove the gear stick and pour it in that way.

Re: This is my Bagged Pickup! Thanks for the Add!

Welcome to the site! Looks pretty cool! I once saw a double extended cab truck like yours that had an extra long bed on it. Stretched frame and lowered. Kinda funky.

Re: To Nashville and Back

Wow! Glad he's okay.

I'm surprised your truck didn't get better than that. My pup got right at about 40 on my trip to the Memphis Meet and she was loaded down.
