and mac (or anyone), what is your opinion on this statement from high angle driveline:
"Our solution to the problem the bottom beefy shaft is an upgrade - not a down grade like some other competitors offer - 1310 c/v's do not belong on these rigs with 4-1 gearing and 35" tires - your just welcoming breakage on the trail- "
do you think "1310 cv's" specifically means the u-joints? sorry i know nothing about shafts except whats in my shorts.
Local Drivetrain shop 30yrs experience.....Took in the stock shaft and the genious behind the counter made me a sweet shaft. I have a lot of buddies running there shafts and never had a failure. The shaft is built to meet the stock requirements at a sweet price. I am looking at getting these produced and shipping them to who ever would like one.Mike Holmes said:ok, now i'm curious, from where?
my fault..Lothos said:Ok, I am not understanding. Whats the difference between a 3/4 and a 1/2 ton cv driveshaft? Don't both use 1310 U-joints also? Why would you get more breakage with the 3/4?
Toms is a good quality shaft..I just think it is to much $$$Lothos said:Ok, I am still confused though I have heard nothing but praise for Wood's shafts, but I also submit this:
So, what's the opinion here? If you put a 1-ton shaft in you're pretty sure you won't break a shaft, but then again what WILL break when you reach the breaking point?
That is what I said......Lothos said:Is the yoke you refer to the piece bolted to the rear end plate? I would think in the case of the 1-ton with 1330 Ujoints that the weak point would move to the pinion perhaps.
LILRDJP said:The breaking point would actually move to the Yoke on the Pinion
About as easy as it gets. The adapter flange (the wafer shaped thingy with the 8 holes in it) goes on the back of that big lumpy silver box above the bent up black whatchamacallit. The big clubby looking end of the Woodie with the 2 swivel thingamabobs inside it gets bolted to the wafer shaped thingy on the back of the big lumpy silver box. The other end of your Woodie with the shiny new swively thingy with the round ends sticking out goes into the grooves in the forked doodad coming out of the pumpkin lookin lump on yer axle. Don't overtighten the nuts on your u shaped little bendy bolts when you're connecting.Mike Holmes said:is the woody installation brain dead easy? i dont feel like thinking, its been an awful week.
