Universal Joint

Why GMB UNIVERSAL JOINTS?

Not all universal joints are the same. Here’s what makes ours stand out.

Nitrile Rubber

GMB Universal Joints can withstand a higher tolerance of short and prolonged exposure to a wide range of oils, and chemicals, whether it be fully submerged or just exposed to the elements. The nitrile rubber can endure extreme temperatures from -40°F to +250°F without compromising functional or structural integrity.

Educate Your Customers About Preventative Maintenance!

Preventative maintenance is the key to maximizing the performance and durability of any universal joint. Here’s a list of maintenance tips to share with your customers:

  1. If a greaseable Universal Joint is installed, periodically inspect your Universal Joints for proper greasing approximately every oil change.
  2. Inspect the yoke that holds your Universal Joint for cracks and stress marks.
  3. Check your seals for signs of leakage and replace if seals are leaking.
  4. Periodically check for drive shaft play, an indication of Universal Joint or seal failure.
  5. Inspect drive shaft for cracks, stress marks, dents and bends and replace if necessary.
