BTW, the rear half of the U-joint is the same for 3 and 4 sped transmissions. The SM-420 has a different front part of the joint than the 3 speed, however. 420's can be converted from open driveline to torque tube applications and back by simply changing the rear bearing retainer. That bearing retainer, which also serves as a pivot point for the torque tube ball, is another scarce part.

Thanks a lot green 98. I even tried calling a company in Sweden that had it posted on their website, but no luck there either. Turned out to be a discontinued ecklers part they had resold.

Thanks a lot for that info Jerry, didn’t know that. That opens up some possibilities.

Your right Jerry, I have purchased ten sm420s last year and only one had the rear bearing retainer for a torque tube and the front yoke. I had an extra that I sold to a fellow member here for a 50 spot and you would of thought I gave him the crown jewels.
