I thought thats what you meant but had to check. I've never known one to wear within the yoke :er: what were the measurements? Of both the bearing cap and yoke? I suppose its possible someone fitted the wrong size UJ causing it to wear.

I'll get the paper with the propper measurements from the garage tomorrow. There was about +-0.65 in the diameter of the yoke and +-0.40 ish in the other bit (Bearing cap? I'm not sure what you call the bit in the middle)

I took the prop shaft off over the weekend. The slightly worn bit I was talking about, it's not much compared to the other end. I failed to notice it when observing the other end, there was too much mud and grease filling it in.

The only way I can guess that this happened are
1) Had a knock at some point.
2) Bearing being incorrectly fitted last time it was changed.
3) It giving up due to 20 years of work!
Within 20 mins of finding the fault, a replacement prop shaft was purchased off eBay.
Now I just need a new exhaust system…

Video = Mind Blown.

Any chance on filling in the table with Rear Prop Shaft Lengths ? Especially the LWB. Flange to Flange would be great.
