    when I was out plowing in this last storm, my truck would have a random tendency to made a strange noise while pushing. The noise sounded at times like a card in a bike spoke, and at other times, it sounded like a chain dragging. Has anyone ever experienced this? Its a 79 Chevy k10 with NP203 full time 4x4.

    I discovered during this storm that I do have a ujoint on the front shaft that needs to be replaced, but its not too badly worn. I jacked it up and the from seems nice and tight. I am going to try and grease all of the joints and shafts to see if that helps, but they shouldn't need it that badly.

    Thanks again,
    Steve
