Bob Says....Measure accurately for your drive shaft

Posted on

Q. How do I measure for my driveshaft?

A. When completing your S-10 Conversion Build, it is important to measure for your driveshaft accurately.

If you do not have a yoke, you will want to measure from the outer lip of seal to center line of universal joint or face of pinion yoke as shown in the photo below:

If you have a yoke, place the yoke in the tail shaft of your transmission and push in until bottoming out. You will then need to pull back on yoke 1 inch. You then will measure from the center of the yoke to the center line of universal joint or face of pinion yoke.

If you have specific questions regarding measuring your driveshaft, call us at 402-643-0504.
