Drive Shaft Issues

I started studying the drive shaft and realized the rear bearing is at such an angle that no grease will get to the bearing. The fix was to make a bearing bracket to make the bearing more vertical.

The next issue is the intermediate bearing. It has a pressed steel housing but no grease fitting. I'll order one with a cast iron housing with grease fitting.

here are the u-joints and the splined end of the old shaft.
