The clamps came with the front u-joint kit from Kanter. 95% of the original boot and the clamps were gone on this car at disassembly. I can check my 53 Cavalier original 62K car tomorrow and take a photo.

The boot is on!!! But what a %#&^#* pain. Still have to grease, put on the front seal plate and gasket, and paint it. That's tomorrow. Couldn't done it without the nimble small fingers of the wife. We'll celebrate the driveshaft tomorrow, July 12th...and our 50th Wedding Anniversary. The virus prevented our planned big trip. But got to be happy anyway.
Some of you may have notice in the pictures I placed the boot next to the driveshaft backwards, I knew which way it went, just didn't place it right for the photos. New photos attached. The boot on, the correct boot orientation, and the bruise on my left thumb from when the boot pop over the pin. Ouch.

Well, I'll give it a try, but that does seem awfully optimistic. It's suppose to be 102 here today, so I'll sit the boot outside in the sun. Maybe that will help. The service manual does show the pin removal process. It shouldn't be this difficult, as the universal joint replacement kit includes a new pin.
I will advise.

I just tried my 20 ton press and no movement. Any opinions about heating? I am concerned of bending while hot and under pressure.
Attached photos show boot and it really isn't an option to install without removing the pin and the housing, especially the housing.

Stubborn pin on front driveshaft of '53 Caribbean
#7

Hello all,
The pin in the front universal joint of the driveshaft of my '53 Caribbean is being very stubborn. I took the driveshaft into a local driveshaft repair shop. They tried but eventually gave up on pressing out the pin. The pin has to come out so that the housing can be removed in order to then install a new rubber boot. I have a 20 ton press (Harbor Freight) and a rosebud oxygen/acetylene for heating. Any suggestions appreciated. I am trying to avoid bending anything as I don't have another driveshaft.
Thanks, Jerry

Thanks for the info. I don't have one to recore. It's for a Caribbean with auto trans. The Brass Works is about 15 miles from me in Paso Robles, if I need a recore.
