Want to pull the driveshaft so I can paint the underside, but need a temp yoke to keep the fluid from coming out of the tranny. Any sponsors sell something like this?

can't you just lift the rearend slightly higher
so all the fluid is going towards the front instead of it going
out the tail.

Yeah if the car sits level u will lose only minimal fluid.

My haynes manual just says to wrap a plastic bag over the trans housing.

Thanks guys. Car is setting level, so maybe I will try the bag thing. Then again I'm unsure how that will keep the fluid in.

I just thought a plastic yoke was a common thing. Guess not.

I just used a yoke that I had laying around.

Call it an excuse for an early trans fluid & filter change?

I bet any boneyard has a surplus of stock steel driveshafts
that nobody wants, and a bent one would go for roughly
nothing. Little sawzall session and there's your plug.
