TM 5-4210-233-14&P-1 5-7.  DRIVE SHAFTS, UNIVERSAL JOINTS AND YOKES - Continued (9) Support removed end of drive shaft using mechanics wire. (10) Remove the bearing plates from the opposite end of the drive shaft similar to steps (3) through (9) preceding. (11) Carefully maneuver universal joint cross (5) out of the end yokes(4 or 7).  Do not use force as this can damage the bearing surfaces. b. Inspection of Drive Shafts. (1) Using   a   clean,   dry,   lint   free   cloth   (Item   42, Appendix E) wipe exposed universal joint cross journals. (2) Visually  inspect  exposed  universal  joint  cross journals and needle bearings in bearing plates. Look  for  defects  caused  by  lack  of  lubrication and   physical   damage.      If   corrosion,   pitting, unusual   wear   or   missing   bearing   needles   is evident, the universal joint must be replaced. (3) Check     the     remaining     two     universal     joint bearings.    Grasp  the  universal  joint  cross  as shown,   and   oscillate   the   cross.      Binding   or looseness   indicates   a   defective   bearing.      If damage is evident, the universal joint must be replaced. (4) Apply   a   small   amount   of   grease   (Item   15, Appendix  E)  to  needle  bearings  of  removed bearing plates. (5) Install  the  bearing  plates  (3)  to  the  universal joint cross (5). (6) Turn  and  test  each  bearing  plate  on  the  cross journals  as  shown.    The  movement  must  be smooth and resistance free. (7) Install   universal   joint   in   a   vise   so   the   loose bearing plates are clamped to the cross.  Using a grease gun, lubricate the universal joint until grease (Item 15, Appendix E) is expelled from all   four   bearing   plates.      If   grease   nipple   is blocked, remove and replace. (8) Remove universal joint from vise and tempor- arily tape or wire bearing plates to cross. (9) Visually inspect drive shafts for dents, excessive corrosion, cracked welds, or missing balance weights. (10)  If a drive shaft is damaged it should be replaced along with the universal joints. 5-29
