WILL THE REAL FORD WIZARD PLEASE STAND UP
#1
OK guys, I need you to dig deep on this one.My car had a heart transplant from an RV with low mileage(460&C6).The problem is a u-joint failure brought me to search the auto parts leaving them scratching their heads.The PO used the driveshaft from the RV .It has the big 3 5/8 X 1"3/16 u-joints, but somehow cannibalized some cups to fit the rear end chuck.Problem is can't match up a replacement u-joint.I think the biggger ones would be better for my power application.I don't want to make a new driveshaft if Ford made the big u-joint chuck for the 9" rear.Does anyone know if a chuck with the 3 5/8" X 1" 3/16 u-joint exsists for the 9" rear? Huh

Measure the inside diameter of the cup as well and take all the measurements to your local car part store and look through thier database.

Kermit,
Check the Ford Racing catalog for u joints. I know they have them available with different sizes & caps.
Thanks, Jay

My 9" yoke uses a standard u-joint with bigger diameter caps. If I remember it came from Summit.

Thanks guys,
Yeah, I brought both u-joint's to napa,had the whole crew tearing boxes apart trying to build a useable piece ,but the small end on my rear ,made this a hard combo.The big 1" 3/16 cups seem to be bigger truck gearing.I put new caps on the rearend half of the joint last summer to buy time but I guess the 460 found the weak link!Confused

You need a conversion U joint. Any driveshaft shop should have it. I think this is what you need.
