Hi All,
Looking for replacements for my driveline uni-joints for the '29 Essex, Spicer here in Australia don't recognise the embossed numbers, the online tool at Dana isn't showing a solution. The usual google search isn't producing anything useful.

Any thoughts ?
Thanks,
Darren

    There are no direct modern  replacement joints for these.  Only option is to go to an engineering shop and get the drive  shaft modified using modern joints.
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.

    Does it mount to the trans. and diff. the same as a 1930 Hudson? I recently had one made.

    Yes, virtually identical set-up as 1930 H, just shorter length.

    Thanks Geoff, that seems to be the way I will need to go.
