Engine and Drivetrain Today, 09:52 AM
I was advised to have the driveshaft (propeller shaft) balanced after putting new U-joints, which is scheduled to happen this week.   There's a new vibration last few weeks that may or not have to do with the U-joints.   No vibration previously, and the driveshaft hasn't been altered or...

Cleaning and restoring guage faces

Interior 01 Oct 2013
