  1. Pinion to crownwheel..... Planet gears to each other.... driveshaft to spine in output gear.... Outer end of shaft to cv... Cv itself... Cv outer to flange.... There can be slack in all these places.....
  2. If 90..remove the drivers seat baseand check the fuel pipes at the top of the tank. Not unheard of for them to corrode and end up with pin holes. Which leads to sucking air not fuel.....
  3. Probably due to them not being the original shock mount..... I'd remove the inner washer and pack out as needed with flat washers.
  4. Not on the cv it isn't.... but on the inner point of the flange it is...

To make an inner with the bigger square on it.... You may find that with the 98 being i guess a serpentine front... it might have the electronic speed transducer on the transfer box... quite how people get round that im not sure.... probably j
  9. Excuse my ignorance.... but don't flapper ecus have 2 rows of connectors... and hotwire 3.....?.
  10. Boltlocker...... It could actually be applied to almost any bolt application....
  11. In my mind the max angle of the uj is more dependant on the yoke its fitted to....
  12. I always put the bolts through from the prop side...... axle end!
  13. Both connectors are intact. ... so probably the switch itself I guess. ... ta
  14. Mine only works on the slower speed. ... what's potentially the issue? ?.....
