Ok , I have a vibration that I can feel at about 60 mph , it really feels like it's in the drive train somewhere cause I can feel it in the shifter handle .

Bad ball joints ? drive shaft need balance ? rear end ?

Just replaced the transmission mount so I think I can rule that one out .

Rick you might want to pull the driveshaft and turn it 180 degrees and reinstall it. I have seen it work sometimes.

Did it vibrate before you pulled the trans out this time?

Is the driveshaft tight inside the tail shaft of the trans? If it is the bushing t could be wore that is in the tail shaft.

I am thinking if you push the clutch and the vibration is still there it is more than likely not in the trans.

Got a different set of tires to put on and see if it goes away if it does it might be a wheel balance problem or a tire belt. Just shooting some suggestions out your way.

Does it disappear after 60 or does it get more vibration. If it goes away it might be the tire balance possibly. It could be a lot of different things. I have even heard of brake drums being out of balance.

Normally vibration in steering wheel is tires and in the seat would be balance. How tight does your u-joint fit in the pinion yoke? I had some play in mine and it caused a intermittent vibration.

It's more in the seat and shifter than steering wheel .

When I first drove it after I got it going again it seemed pretty good but when I drove it down to Sharonville it seemed to get worse.

I'll have to check for play in the yoke.

You dofus, you can't clock it anymore. It is a one time clockage per SCCA rules.
Rick just drive it like you stole it and it will be fine.
