Looking at the intermediate shaft made me feel like I probably could have skipped this rebuild, and I knew it has been trouble-free and quiet, but Murphy's Law made me do it, mostly because it does not get any easier. The shaft and thrust washers are not bad, for 32 years. And a testament to a good rebuild, and clean oil. I have to get the front housing on first, so I cleaned it, disassembled, installed new shifter seals, bearing and front output seal, reassembled. Prepped the front of the housing for installation. Bolted it up, now I can get to the main shaft installation.
