Could tell whether the driveshaft was in phase before you removed? The previous posts explains this. If the coach was ever towed it probably had the driveshaft removed and possibly when it was put back it wasn't put in phase.

Are there any marking on the driveshaft to show that it goes together correctly.

Most large driveshafts are balanced after they are assembled and weights added to compensate for weight imbalance. Can you tell if yours had been balanced?

While it is out I would suggest going ahead and changed the U-Joints, I bought a pair for ~$110 a couple years ago on line. After you get new U-Joints installed I'd take it to a driveshaft shop and have the balance checked.

The u joints look good and seem to move freely. I have a part number of Spicer F6-5-69. I can't seem to find it online. I have two regular round caps on one end and two with a square bolted cap on the ends. It has two grease zerts. I have hunted all over the internet and can't find these.

Also, does anyone have any tricks for removing the bolted head of these u-joints?

5 Gallon bucket with diesel in it, submerge the u joint and let soak...

Lay the round caps on 2 blocks of wood, 1 each side.

Strike down on yoke, just behind cap, it slides up at you.

Turn over for other side.
