Photo 285 - Driveshaft after soaking and reinstalling yoke.

Photo 286 - 288 - Yoke after soaking and during rebuild of u-joint.  Absolutely zero play in the cups and no wear in the needles or cups.  Unfortunately I wasnít so lucky on the diff side joint so I will source a new grease-able one from a local parts house.

Now for some driveshaft marking details. 

Photo 289 - 292 - Whatís left of the white stripe, then oddly enough what appears to be remnants of a stenciled part number but unable to make it out completely and then at the end of the stencil is the remains of the orange stripe.

Last thing for today are the front brake lines and clips that had black overspray on them and surprisingly it saved them from pitting and corrosion.

Photo 296 - Crossover brake line to the passenger side front and the drivers side front line.  Sorry no photos of before paint removal.

Small update overnight.  Pulled the main fuel line and gave it a good once over.

As you can tell that line looked pretty cruddy but with a little pedestal mounted grinder with a wire wheel and hitting the whole line with Wenol Blue and Red metal compounds made it come out decent enough for this ole hunk of junk.

Thanks guys. 

Way cool! What did you use to clean the driveshaft?

4" pvc, pvc cap, and evaporust. 

Couple of things when soaking driveshafts is #1 make sure to keep an eye on it and not to let it sit in there too long.  And #2 when wiping down after soaking pay special attention to where markings are because you will wipe them off if you touch them while they are still wet.  I've done 4 or 5 shafts now and the 1st one I done I lost all the markings but thankfully had photos prior to doing so.

I wouldn't go that far but thank you nonetheless.

Finally the last of the hard lines to clean which is the main brake line.  Same process of wire wheel grinder & Wenol blue & red compounds.

Some reason website isn't allowing me to upload another photo..  Hopefully it's just something I am doing.
