home-brew SYE?


Recommended Posts

hey,

 

how hard would it be to build your own SYE?

 

I've just been wondering...

 

cause it seems to me that if I were to drill and thread the center of the output shaft, then combine a front d.s. yoke from the t-case with a slip-yoke, and bolt it up, that would be all I would need..

 

flawed thinking? probably...

I would take the slip yoke from the original driveshaft and cut the end off of it. then weld a front yoke onto it (centered of course) and have it balanced by itself. drill a hole in the end, and thread/bolt it down :D

 

it could work I think. I actually think that I can take the outpt shaft from my spare tranny and have it duplicated for greater strength and tolerance from a stronger/thicker/better metal.

 

we shall see if I can. eventually. I was just thinking...

You can make it work rather easily. In one form or another.

 

 

But yeah, the stock output shaft is a waste of time. They go snappy snappy when you use the skinny skinny.

 

You mean something like this?

 

 

That was my brothers 242 snapping the mainshaft where the speedo gear splines are.

 

maximum suckage rebuilding a t-case instead of wheeling the next day.
