I have an 88 240 wagon with auto trans. Checking for the source of driveline vibration, I found the trans output yoke has some noticeable runout by moving up and down. I as thinking about removed the trans tailshaft housing to see if there is a bearing or bushing thats worn? Am I getting in too deep for a newbie non-auto trans mechanic? thanks.

The usual culprit in a RWD Volvo is u-joints or driveshaft hanger bearing. I'll assume you've checked those first. 98% probablility. You'll have to remove them to get to the tailshaft anyways.

Check a service manual for the correct procedure to change a yoke. There will be a certain amount of lateral play in the yoke on the shaft anyways so find some specs. Some cars have a crush sleeve that must be specifically torqued, one time only, to get things right. If you keep the yoke, make sure there's no wear on the outer surface where the oil seal makes contact. Pretty straightforward.

Tail-shaft

thanks BHart..I removed the tailshaft housing and ordered a new bushing and seal from IPD. My ujoints seem okay...will replace the center support and bearing with new.
Another question: do you know what the orange cannister is that is under the drivers dash area. It is plugged in and contains a circuit board?
thanks.

Maybe the Moderator can send you info on the easy way to post some pix.
It's best to have them posted here for others to see and get a correct identification.
