U-joint help needed

This is a re-post as I didn't get enough help the first time I asked
these questions, I thought I'd try again.

Where can we find a cross-reference part number for U-Joints that are
used on the prop shaft assembly that may not need modifications for a
perfect fit? I was told to check out Rockford Drive Line for these U-
joints; but I don't know their size.

Also, I have tried to disassemble the propeller drive shaft from the
shaft housing for overhaul but can't seem to get it apart. The
Amphicar maintenance manual is not very clear when telling how to do
this:

"Drive the shaft out of the housing in the direction of the
propeller" and "While driving the shaft out, turn the shaft with one
hand to avoid the locking ring of the roller bearing inside ring from
sitting behind the rollers, and therefore preventing damaging the
roller bearing." Sounds pretty easy just reading it doesn't it?

Has anybody done this operation that will be able to help me out?

Thanks,

Hi I just did six prop drive shafts, or should I say the guy as the NAPA did.
I just took them in and he did all the work. He sized and installed them.
They needed a washer on the ends as the new ones are a little shorter. He did
charge me $40 to install all eight joints. If you want the part number call
me @ 800. 865.5064 Tommy in Tampa
