Hello, Everyone. Could someone help me identify these U yokes to repair (front axle drive?). Also if it is possible to repair or replace them. The tube yoke that is cut is approximately 9" long. They would have been parts from a Chevy G506 or maybe from another Chevy/GMC truck. Regards
Thanks for the reply. I think it may be related to the PTO. This truck had been a fire engine and they had PTO for auxiliary equipment such as the front water pump and the hoses. I think that this shaft could have been for one of those pieces, perhaps the same type as those used in the front winches.

As Mark said, find a Driveline shop near you and take it to them. They will build you a new one. You may just be surprised at how inexpensive it can be. My complete driveshaft for the ‘62 C-10 restomod was right at $250 including ujoints.

Could it be an adaptation of a part from another vehicle? It appears to have the appearance of an agriculture Cardan-type shaft. This shaft was in the front, attached with a rope to the radiator. That's why I thought it had to do with the water pump. But I know someone who has a fire engine G506 with a front mounted Darley pump, and it isn't the same as this one.
Thank you for all of the comments. It is very helpful.
When you stated "was in the front, attached with a rope to the radiator" reminded me of the engine driven hydraulic pump used by @Heil Equipment to supply the hydraulic system on refuse trucks. PIA to replace engine belts.
I looked and looked but discovered it was unobtaiium!
