To replace the original in my '65 Impala, M20, 12 bolt. One of the end castings is cracked on mine. Does anyone sell these". Or have one for sale?

I know of a wrecking yard in Washington State if you get desperate. They have several.

Not desperate yet, but if you could PM me contact info for the yard I would greatly appreciate it. May have to have a driveline shop make one up, but would prefer a good original if I can find one. Thank you for getting back to me.

Looks like you'll have several options closer to home. For other's reference, the junkyard I'm talking about is Dan's Garage in Kennewick, WA (link below). He is closed because of COVID-19 right now, but he'll reply to an e-mail eventually. He probably has a dozen '65-'66 Impalas, and about that many '63-'64 as well as '67-70 Impalas. Most of his cars were purchased in the 70's and 80's, but they aren't stripped down as much as you would think. He specializes in '60's GM muscle cars, so he has Chevelles, Camaros, and some Pontiacs in there too. He also has a large lot of project cars he's bought over the last 20 years to save them from the scrapyard. If anybody needs a good rust-free project, you should check it out. Yes, there is a desert in Eastern Washington State and our cars don't rust.

Another great option. I've found a driveline shop about 20 miles from me, that the local drag racers swear by. I'll try them first (they are on vacation until Monday) and if that doesn't work out I'll go with one of the suggestions I have gotten here. Thanks for this information Ted!

Good news . . . thanks to a suggestion from a buddy who has a race car, I found a driveline shop in Augusta, GA (Master Fabricators; not far from where I live) and they were able to cut off the busted yoke and weld on a brand new one. By some miracle, they had the right one in stock. Good as new!



Thanks to all of you who responded with some great suggestions.
