Guibo troubles

Ok so i have everything from the peilican DIY done. The 3 tranny nuts on the guibo are out. The 3 bolts on the DS to guibo are "loose". I lowered the tranny a bit, And i removed the CSB. I feel like im missing something because the DS just does not wanna come out.... I can pull as hard as i want and hit the thing.

Any help would be wicked. I just wanna drive this thing!

You will probably have to remove the exhaust hanger (if there is one dont know what car your working on), to move the drive shaft enough to get it to drop.

Also (if you haven't already) make sure you mark the orientation of your drive shaft in the off chance it comes apart otherwise it might be out of balance when you put it back together.

I remember when I took my drive shaft off, it was stuck on the centring pin on the transmission fairly snug. I had to drive a flat screw driver between the output flange and the drive shaft flange to get them to come apart.

I may have screwed myself with marking the driveshaft at the csb (if its nessesary). And everything is removed so nothing should be in the way. The studs seem to be stuck from the DS to the guibo, your saying I can pry the DS off of the rubber plate?

The vibration damper has studs pressed into it that go through the guibo and into the flange. As long as all the nuts are off of the transmission output flange you should be able remove the drive shaft. Just get a pry bar in between the vibration damper and the transmission and give it a few hits (make sure to rotate the drive shaft after each hit) and you should see it start to separate.

Well this is where im at,

Your saying just stick a flat bar in between the metal casing around the guibo and the tranny? I was just nervous pushing on the tranny too hard.

BTW this is a pic before i took the 3 "nuts" off the guibo to tranny. The other 3 bolts are as loose as i can get them.

It's preferable to remove the output flange to get the dampener off.

Marking it shouldn't matter, as the shaft is 2 pieces and balanced individually. But, better to be safe then sorry.

It probably wouldn't come out because there is a large nut that tightens down on a taper to keep the 2 halves together, and from moving in that extra 1/2" to get it out of the output shaft of the tranny. If you look just after the CBS you will see it, loosen it with a pair of channel locks as it's fairly large. Also, if you take all 6 bolts out, it's easy.

I believe they are actually balanced together. The service manual makes it sound as though that's the case. Here are the relevant excerpts

"Using paint or a punch, make matching marks on the
driveshaft at the transmission output flange and flexible
coupling, and at the final drive input flange so that the
driveshaft can be reinstalled in the same position."


"If the splined coupling is to be cleaned or if the rubber
bushing is being replaced, mark the two sections of the driveshaft
before pulling the coupling apart. Lubricate the splines
with molybdenum disulfide g rease (Molykote Longterm 2 or
equivalent) before reassembly. If the two sections are pulled
apart without the driveshaft being marked, reassemble the
splined coupling so that the universal joints are on the same
plane as shown in Fig. 4-7. There is still the possibility of the
driveshaft being reassembled wrong by 180 and causing
vibration. In this case remove the driveshaft, separate the two
sections at the splined coupling, turn one section 180, and
reassemble."

Yes I always just follow the ujoints in same plane rule as outlined in the image up above... seems to work well for me.
