Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1972 Chevy Camaro V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual
I have a 1953 Chevy truck with a 383 that I recently (several hundred miles ago)changed over from a Turbo 350 automatic to a Tremec TKO-500 5 speed with a hydraulic clutch. The rear end is out of a 1972 camaro. If I am cruising down the road at a constant speed and step on the gas to accelerate, the back end moves to the right (sort of fish tails) and front then steers to the opposite side. Likewise if I am cruising in less than 5th gear and suddely take my foot off of the gas, the same thing happens in the opposite direction as I decelerate. The problem was very slight at first, but seems to be getting worse. I'm thinking it is a problem with the rear end unequalliy transfering power to the wheels, but don't know. Any suggestions on what the cause may be or how to determine what the cause is?
