    I removed a driveshaft from a 1964 Commander to replace the "U" joints and had bad vibration afterwards. I took the "U joint loose again and I rotated the shaft 180 degrees and installed the "U" joint again and the vibration was gone.

      Wow, the US prices sure are lower BIGtime! Still; I'm gonna visit my fav workshop-&-also-speedshop tomorrow to see what they say...

      About turning the shaft half-a-turn with the joint still in the shaft; since I've had it appart now I don't remember how it was fitted before but I might be lucky, sure hope so!

      (Today was a day when I didn't even go near Josephine, had to support Sonja's windowframe-instal & move + extend the puppies own yard. No picture of the yard-work thou.

      Now it's only the rest do be done... there's nothing behind the planks, just air so we're adding some stuff while we're at it & the lowest part from the top of the windows (that's gona be replaced too) are gona have different planking & become white to flow with the buildings on eash side, kinda like this:

        Nothing new so far here & I'm not gonna go on more about the barn wall work, it's way worse than I thought... (Just imagen a brick wall on top of a wooden plank laying flat on earth & then on top of this 1 meter high brick wall another wooden plank, also rotten, & another brick wall on top of that!) & the puppies are growing, funny how different they are in way of behaving, such personalities!
        Anyway, barnwork & dogs have kept me away from Josephine bigtime, but a thought hit me yesterday: I'm gonna contact a pal over in the US to buy & send me shims, otherwise this is gonna go on forever.

          Been in contact with my US (originaly Canadian) friend & he's at it but it takes ages, busy as he is. Connected the rev-counter instead & got me a Hurst shifter:

              On Topic:
              First I thought I'd go for the ones that Junior sugested but later on I found I wanted the ones with hole instead of a slot, it feel like the slot would / could / might glide out... So I went for Sweet Old Bob's Summit sugestion instead, this one:

                Nox...I wondered if the slotted ones would walk-out too so I put some witness marks on the spring pads and springs and they have not moved at all in 8 years they have been in there...manual transmission and more than a few spirited clutch-drop starts and they're all good. cheers, junior

                  Okidoki, good to know! But now my pal has already orderd the ones with holes.
                  (Off topic: doing the shifter linkage now, easy with just one rod + already a small platform with a hole in on side of the gearbox (see arrow),
                  only recuired one more drilled hole, but mighty tight under there because I put the silencers as far forward as possible to avoid resonance that always apears on sb MoPars around 45-50 m/h.)

                    A week ago Sonja's Subaru had to go to the Subaru doctor (some stuff is way to horrible for me to work on as it's a modern car) & I had to lower Josephine from her stands & get Ozzian from school... I have taken down most of the exhaust system so the pipes ended before the rear axel & WOW!!! that is LOUD inside!
                    Anyway; the pinion angle is still the same & the vibrations are still there / here.
                    (By now I've also fetched him 2 times from school & gonna drive him there tomorrow, he hates it...)
                    So: the vibrations are still there & shims are welcome.
