How to grease drive shaft 88 Blue bird

I just bought an 88 bluebird drove it 150 miles home, all went well but when I was looking it over I found that where the drive shafts link up are bone dry. I am going to grease them before moving it anywhere but want to make sure I get the grease everywhere it needs to go. Can anyone point me to a YouTube video that will show me, or maybe a series of pictures?

If there is a grease fitting, you should be able to use a common grease gun to fill them.

If the driveshaft and u joints are serviceable, you will see grease nipples/zerk fittings either in the cross shaped portion or the end cup of the u joints and a fitting near any splined sliding shafts writhing the driveshaft. Pump them with grease until the old starts coming out and you see some new and wipe clean.
