I figured out a way to get it out. on the first strap I was able to drive a chisel between the u joint cap and strap which allowed me to eventually work the strap out as I hammered on the chisel. well this last strap I could not get the chisel between the strap and cap. By hammering on the cap I was able to drive this last u joint out of the strap. Once out I placed a slightly smaller impact socket into the strap flange hole, put my chisel between the socket and strap and hammered away. As the strap moved out I replaced the socket withe the next size up and continued wedging the chisel in there until Eureka the damn thing finally came out! Hopes this idea helps the next guy in this fix. :smile2:
Do you happen to have a picture of how you got this strap free. I have a '67 vette and I am experiencing the same issue. I can not get the strap free. Thank you much for the help.
