    Default Mercruiser ujoint PRECISION (MOOG)# 315G

    I just installed a Precision (Moog) 315G from Oreillys AP on my MC 165 and found the caps to be too long and protruded out further than the original. This joint was on the list in the "sticky" thread. Won't get them next time. Had to grind off a little of the cap end to get it to clear the ujoint cage. It cleared on one side but lacked clearance on the other.

    Precision may have changed than particular ujoint, and you probably shouldn't have used it at all. Especially if you have to grind the caps. That will do wonders for balance.
