Post a Want Ad in the Swap Meet.
I do not recall seeing them listed a new reproduction part.
Check the Chevs of the 40s on-line catalog.
Maybe call Jim Carter Truck Parts (he sells used parts - I bought a set from him many years ago).
Thanks for the trouble of looking up that link sstock
Those are scarce as hens' teeth- - - - -I bought a complete transmission and rear end to get just that yoke recently!
Had already posted in the swap meet area, no luck so far, but will definitely try your other leads
Wow hotrod Lincoln, i’ve Been searching for a while now and am starting to understand why I’m not finding any.
Try sending a PM to "KC Mongo". I believe he had one available back when "Green 98" was looking for a yoke, and we managed to find one a lot closer to us than Kansas City.
Thanks Jerry, I sent him a pm.
Yes, Jerry helped me tremendously in my search for a yoke. I will dig back through my email as well, because I did find one gentleman that ended up having one he would sell, but as I recall, he was impossible to get on the phone.
There was another guy in Oklahoma that has one he will sell. Tom Meyer 918-542-3871. Miami OK. $200 as I recall.
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.
