Let's face it, the old A-100 ball & trunnion joint on the A-100's is outdated and parts are not available anymore to rebuild them (at least to my knowledge). Replace that B & T joint with a traditional u-joint setup. I've done this in the past with great results.

First thing you'll need is the flange.

Spicer P/N: SPI-2-2-349

http://www.northerndrivetrain.com/product/SPI-2-2-349.html

Also available as NEAPCO P/N N2-2-349

Must be used with NEAPCO combo u-joint P/N 2-3100 or NAPA NPJP319

+1. However, I also strongly recommend swapping the old 727 or 904 out with an A904T (but use the old tailshaft for the trans mount, if possible.) Better gears, better clutch packs. An A500 would be better, but you would have to fabricate the trans mount.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!
