That's the part we have.  The whole taco (support and bearing).  On Frank's
DS it appears the rubber in the center support is bad as well as the
bearing.  We were thinking of cutting off the ears of the old one and
welding them to the new one, assuming the diameter's of both center supports
are compatible.  If this works, I'll let you guys know.

I agree.  However, have you ever seen me weld?    :-)
Thanks Again Igor.  I think we are definitely on the right track.  I will
post copious direction for a fix as soon as we get one.  Also thanks to
everyone involved in project Driveshaft (Frank Bauer, Mike Rooney, Igor
Kessel, Marty Liggins, Avi Meron)
