Identifying the Universal Joint (Uni Joint)

The universal joint is important for the performance of the overall driveshaft. Below is a universal joint identifier guide that you can follow.

  1. The first step in identifying the Uni Joint is to measure the outside diameter of the Uni Joint cap.   If the Uni Joint is a mechanics type, you measure between the centers of the wholes in the cap.Bearing-cap-types
