yup ... still got the shudder ... I've done nothing to it since I restarted this topic yesterday.
I don't think I'll do anything more until one of the Argosy owners out there can provide me with the definitive alignment (ie; pictures). I hate to make it worse by just trying stuff. I still think mine's 90 degrees out.

... thanks

drive shaft,

Hayseed ,
the yokes have to be inline,or "in phase" in other words they have to look like the rear shaft, not 90 degrees opposite ,

Just go to your neighbor lady, and tell her you want to look at HER drive shaft cause your "yokes" are messed up(maybe).
now that IS a different line you got to admit, who knows,
maybe she will fry you some yokes and toast, coffee aw well,
have a gooder,

Thanks again !!

Did you use the links I put in a few replies back that showed my driveshaft ?? They are:
Picture of the front universal
Picture of the center universal
Can you look at them and see if that's what you mean when you say "in phase" or are they "out of phase" ??

driveshaft

ok,
I looked at the pictures, looks like the shaft IS correct IF you didn't move the MH between pictures.
just remember, like a bog bone , not a 1/4 turn off.
just as an afterthought, you can jack up one side,( put jack under spring between the 4 shackle bolts) and have someone run the motor home in gear and observe the shaft turning . don't need to go fast, 5 mph is way plenty, to check for run out, I think you can see the shaft WITHOUT going under.
(espically if your better half caught you over at some neighbor checking out her yokes
(sorry I just can't resist some humor) ha, LOL!!

also check the rear differential yoke (the one on the pinion)
sometimes they get worn and "spread", in other words they are too wide, allowing the drive shaft to move. grab the shaft at the rear universal and try to move it up/down side to side there should be NO radial movement .
luck, ol' George
