Trying to replace the gaiter on the slip joint. Mine does not look like the manual. There is a sleeve welded that covers the area where the splines are.
The manual and parts books show a “steel ring” that attaches the gasket to the sleeve yolk, mine uses a hose clamp. Manual has two “rubber rings” that secure the gaiter to the shaft. If they are there on my shaft they are innaccessible because of the welded sleeve.
There appears to be a steel ring inside the sleeve that seems to be held in place by slakes in the sleeve.
