    A new u-joint should move very freely on the yoke shouldn't it?

    Hi Garet - as far as I know, the yoke should be fairly snug fit on the the U-joint bearing caps, it's the cross portion of the U-joint that should move freely (but without any slop) in the bearing caps.

    The needle bearings are between the cross and the bearing cap, so that's where the movement should be - there aren't any bearings between the cap & the yoke itself.

    Hope this makes sense!
