I was going along about 4,000 rpmís on the CT River the driveline went out.  No warning.  Iíve had 3 or 4 other instances with universals binding and blowing apart with my 20í Aluminum Gator jet.  This is a SD309 AT pump powered by a vortec 350.  Geometry looks fine.  I grease them a couple times a year, doesnít seem to matter.  I get about 100 hours on them and they go.  This is the first time the frame of the driveline has cracked apart, the other times it was just the universal joints.  I have a refreshed one (pictured) to install.   It super hard to fix, but annoying that it keeps happening.
