Vibration
« on: November 19, 2007, 11:34:42 AM »
I got a friend coming over to look at his truck at my place tonight. Its a 93 Chev pickup with a v8. He says he's getting vibrations on take off. I'm thinking U joints.
Any other thoughts?

That would be my first guess.  It is only on takeoff?

Yup, mine did that. By the time I got under it to look -- the needles were dust and the cup was split. It was just one throttle-goose way from failure. Hope he takes it easy getting there, I could have easily been stranded.
