SKF USA Inc. has released an online video demonstrating how to inspect and replace a U-joint on a commercial truck.
The video explains how to use SKF U-joints to replace a rear driveshaft U-joint on a 2017 Freightliner Cascadia truck. It begins by outlining the tools needed followed by an overview of a detailed inspection. The video then provides step-by-step instructions for disassembly and reassembly.
The company says SKF universal joints meet or exceed original equipment specifications. Each part is precision manufactured to provide reliable performance and maximum service life. The SKF Brute Force universal joint is a high performance part that is designed for higher horsepower and torque applications and extreme conditions. They are available in greasable and non-greasable versions.
“We’re excited to offer this newly released video, giving technicians the opportunity to see a complete inspection and replacement of a U-joint on a heavy duty truck application,” says Brian Jungmann, marketing communications manager. “Through videos like this offered on our YouTube channel skfpartsinfo.tv, SKF is aiming to help fleet technicians deliver reliable performance and maximum service life, ultimately minimizing truck down time.”
