That's the most obvious problem (so you would think), but NOT!- there's not a problem of that sort.
Thank you for that anyhow

do you have a pic of this mod? Is the gold washer glued on the spindle where it hits the c hub?

This play is what causes the CVD's to chatter. If you put the gold washer on the spindle, that play will be removed and you shouldn't get the chatter anymore.

Yep, you glue it to where it just can't get to full lock.

You just need to take the CVD apart and rebuild it, maybe even replace the bone and pin to take out slop.

Glue a gold washer on the little nub on the spindle where it hits the caster block.
