UJ tightness?

How tight should the caps containing the bearings be in the UJ body? I have just taken the circlips out of my slack end and the caps could be pushed out with my fingers. (All very oily). I reckon they should be a tight fit, in which case does that mean the UJ casting is worn, as well as the rollers? Therefore is my whole UJ scrap?

Cheers John.

I had to press mine out. I think you need to establish if the cups or yoke is worn. Not sure if you can get the dimensions from your supplier? If I can, I’ll see if anyone at work has a UJ handbook.
