      There are a few aftermarket ones that match the evo 1-3 style U-joints, and they do not have the grease fitting, i got a few moog ones part number 398 i am not sure if anyone has had issues with these yet but i decided to give them a try.

      Mech Addict replied to the thread 1G Rear trunk liner?.
      Sounds similar to masonite, which is about what the original is made from. Kind if a sturdier version of cardboard. The “luggage room” as it’s called in the factory parts manual, was all removed for lightness (presumably, for a total of...

      Mech Addict replied to the thread Wait was Worth It.
      Well it turned out good. I have welded a bit, and just bought my own first mig, a little 90amp from Eastwood that seems fine for body work. Fixing those beams is way down on my list for the gsx. I’m planning on some patch panels on my dodge...

      Nice. Mine has it on both sides, bit not at the end like yours. More midway. I thought if I was really gung-ho, I would cut the floor above it and try to hammer/ press it back in shape. Then weld the floor back over. It would be hidden by carpet...

      Mech Addict replied to the thread 1G Rear trunk liner?.
      I kept my donut and carpeted the floor around it. Looks decent when there’s no other clutter. If I was attempting what you described, I might use some stacked layers of rigid “blue board” insulation, with holes cut to fit the hump. Each layer...

      mechanical might not be a good fit for what you’re describing. A lot of ME grads go on to HVAC and power generation careers. You might be better served by materials science, mechanics of materials, and that sort of study. As others have pointed...

      Mech Addict replied to the thread Oil leak with pictures.
      I pulled my front cover to chase down an oil leak, and did find my cam seals were at least part of the problem. The rubber lip had essentially hardened into plastic, and part of it had cracked away. You’d be wise to try the valve cover for...

      Mech Addict replied to the thread Oil leak with pictures.
      Looks like you’ve circled the water pump, which can’t leak oil. Must be something up above it leaking down onto it. Could be cam seal or valve cover gasket. You can take the upper timing cover off and see those areas much better. You can even...

      It's unfortunate that some people find the need to attack people constantly and don't understand that their good points and information get lost in the messaging and vitriol. The exact reason I've never had any social media, don't have the time...

      There is a point where lively discussion and razzing crosses into hostility and public shaming. It’s better to state what you know or think rather than what someone else doesn’t know. Ujoints are getting scarce as are lots of parts. We need to...

      Informative and colorful discussion. It brings up a point that I have wondered about for some time. Why do ujoints use needle bearings at all. Sounds like some don’t, from what bastarddsm alluded to. Under the typical few degrees of articulation...

      Mech Addict reacted to Tina94's post in the thread Is balance shaft delete worth it? with Like Like.
      I know substantially less than everyone else commenting here. But I will say that I’m doing my t belt right now, finishing it up tonight actually, and have opted to keep the balance stuff.I trawled through probably 50 threads on this site and...
    • Mech Addict
      Yeah, that makes sense too. Do cranks and cams receive that treatment? I assume trans gears and r&p sets must, for their high load pressures. Sounds like machining down u-joints from larger ones would take a lot of processing.
    • Mech Addict
      what about heat treating? The needles will just brinnel the soft steel after you machine the case off it........
    • Mech Addict
      Yes, I thought about your last point after I posted that. It’s not only a matter of machining the part, but also would need to polish it to a very smooth finish to act as a bearing surface. I suppose that’s not too different from what some shops...
    • Mech Addict
      I was imagining getting them machined from billet, and not a new forging. I’m not knowledgeable enough about the materials to say it would work or not. Entirely new shafts with everything upgraded is certainly one option, and after rebuilding my...
    • Mech Addict
      At some point there is a limit to how much room between the yokes will allow for more cross material. The next move would be to start with a stronger allow of steel, I suppose.Probably forged, not cast, but your point is worth exploring. If...

      I was emailing with another OG DSM owner tonight, who is rebuilding a 1G AWD for his son.He contacts me when they're working though another segment of the car (MUCH appreciated, and I'm honored), and today, we've been working on rebuilding the...

      Second on the ECU repair. I did that right away with mine. ECM was great, and replaced the caps as precaution, though they said mine didn't appear to have leaked. I have seen photos posted of the "damage" that leaking capacitors exhibit, but not...
