I have 1wd fd. Will that works?
What happens if the draw bolt too loose?
Why is fd black and your engine is silver?
What up with the other drive shaft is the back ground?

You will have to add more shims until you can just draw the wedge bolt to where the top of it is near flush with the yoke.

Very informative. I usually just re-install the shims when i rebuild.
The fit is always close, no detectable slop in the wedge pin but then again, I might not have been looking. :oops:
I will check next time I have the yoke off and shim accordingly.
