Driveshaft Markings - 68 San Jose S code/C6 - non GT/CS

From front;

Pink, White, Light Blue, then a bit further down a light seafoam green-ish.

from rear weld 9" 17 3/4", 21 3/4", 23 3/4", stripes about 1/2" wide.

Yokes orange, with yellow small swipe. Have seen very carefully painted yokes, most I have are as this shows, appear to be a few orange brush strokes not masked/carefully painted around base of weld and around U joint eyes. Yellow on both ends also appears to be a smaller brush mark.

If you dip in Evaporust for a few hours you will be able to see the paint marks more clearly. Be ready to take pictures as a lot of the paint will wash off when you clean the shaft. Marty

I use a 4 inch PVC tube with a cap. It taked 1.75 gallons. It lasts a long time so you can do several projects before it is shot. It cost $22.00 per gallon here. Marty

Man I miss the US and prices there... 22 there, 70 here... and our dollar is now even with the US (unlike at 50c wehn i moved there in 2001)

Paid over $120 the other day for fluid to refill my C6. $40 in brake fluid (3 x 500ml) to flush... An oil change is $50 of oil plus $20 for a filter...

Many of us do not know how good we have it. Complaning about 3.35 a gallon gas.
Thanks for the reminder. Marty

$1.60 a liter here (I run premium in the nags) $1.40 for reg. Works out to over $6 a gallon... not as bad as Europe, some there are paying near $10!
