I've changed many u-joints but have run into a problem. Maybe I gave up to soon due to having gotten over heated. Its hot I was welding from 7;30 am untill 12:30 and sweating trying to fix stuff that needed to be welded.I knew I was losing more water then I was taking in.Anyway after the welding was done I wanted to change the u-joint on my Howse brush mower .Its gotten pretty sloppy.Anyway I tried a few times and the cups are recessed way down in the yoke.When I try to take the cups out by pushing down on the other one the cross bottoms out on the inside of the yoke and the cup just barely comes out the other side not enough siticking out to grab a hold.Has anyone ever encountered a u-joint like this and what/how do you get these out short of destroying the joint. I'll have to try again but not when I'am dehydrated as patience just isn't there.LOL I gave up and went in the house for a few hrs to cool off and get fluid back in.never tried after that. Larry
