Just got the car back on the road after a few months and I notice that it has a vibration that it did not have before. It seemed like it was coming form the rear so I jacked it up and found that the rear u joint has play side to side. I don't know if it was there before but it did not vibrate before either. It feels and sounds like I'm driving across small speeed bumps. Should the u joint have 3/16" play side to side or do I need a new one?

Vintage, I removed the drive shaft and sure enough there some broken needles in the cups. I did have the cups in between the registers as you mentioned.

I went form a P/G to a M 20 and when I put the drive shaft back in I had to remove the cups to get the drive shaft into the yoke and then install the cups. I do not remember if I had to remove the cups when I took the d/s out. Is this to tight for the d/s?
