Oddly enough my car demonstrated no vibration.
And that is the advantage of using the guibo's (guibii?) opposed to universal joints. They are much more forgiving in regards to vibration absorption.

An "upgrade" you might consider is the filling of the open space of the transmission mount with polyurethane. I use Loctite Pro Line S30 Roof and Flashing sealant.

Tape one side, fill the voids completely, let cure, remove tape and install. It can take up to one week for the sealant to thoroughly cure.

If you use any higher rating (the "30" number) you might end up with too stiff of a mount which can transmit vibrations.

Something I did to extend flex disc life. Removed the drive shaft on my ‘71 and inspected the rubber for cracks... which it had... but nothing torn through. So I cleaned it up real good with acetone and then coated it with Silicone type II... evenly distributed around the entire rubberized area.

Ha! I like this!
I think I'll do that when it gets here.
Thanks a lot.

This is good, too late now as I already took apart and reassembled my D-shaft.

Thank you though.
