I broke my Yoke!

Well guys I broke my yoke. Actually I broke the saddles holding the U-Joint in place. What can I do when I replace this to ensure that it wont happen again. It happened just on a regular drive to the store! They probably vibrated loose (I have a 350). but how could I stop this from happening again

I would replace the yoke with one that allows for the u bolt mounts instead of the straps. Depending on your setup, you maight have to buy a new yoke or just drill the holes out. I'll see if I can get you a website on this conversion.

Get out your 5/16" drill bit and drill out the threads. Use a u-bolt from the HELP section at your auto parts store that says FORD on it. There are only 3 different types of u-bolts, one for stock yoke with 1310 or 1330, one for 1350, and this ford one that I'm not sure what it's stock application is but the round part fits the 1310 u-joint (stock) and the bolt parts are wider than the normal 1310 style u-bolt and the right width for this mod.
