Front Driveshaft slip

Alright guys put my new tcase in and rear pinion yoke. Almost done with my revival project. However the front drive shaft is bugging me. After screwing around for 20-25 minutes of trying to shove the driveline in, I've given in for a break. Im not sure the deal, tried rotating the shaft to align the spines but its not working.

TLDR; How do I get that in there? Pictures for reference.

take the front yoke out and reassemble on a bench. You need to loosen that collar and clean, relube, and check the seal.
Then reinstall. You can inspect the u-joint a little better, too.

Channel locks as I recall. It doesn't need to be real tight, just snug to lightly seat the seal.

Sounds good. I'll get on it in the morning. I already cleaned it out with brake cleaner. So a lube and fitting should do it.

Also make sure your U-joints are lined up. Phasing is important if you want the drive shaft to last.

That's good to know about phasing, thanks. However the collar just keeps on turning, not really sure how this sucker will work. If it'll just unscrew or pop off.

That collar just pop's on and off. It takes some coaxing with a mallet to get it on and off. It's a snug fit.

Are the ears of the top and bottom U-joints lined up perfectly? So if you sat it on the floor, both ears would be flat on the floor idea.
