    I was reading the ck5 tech article on the swap. Does anyone have the part number for that u-joint that he refernces 1310/1350 combination? Also, what is the best method to deal with e-brake cables?

    My ebrake cables hooked right up. I don't remember the pn of the u-joint though. Go to either NAPA or CArquest and they out to be able to look it up for you.

    I see this question all the time. Idon't know what size my U joints are. I've just ordered them by application. I went from a 87 10 bolt in a half ton to a
    ff 14 bolt srw unknown year and I didn't need a conversion joint. Is this only certain years?

    B_to_C found out the hard way that you can get an S44 joint to work in a 14bolt yoke. You think it's in there okay, but upon close inspection you'll realize it's a little loose.

    mostwanted, you need the following:
    Napa: (S44)10b -(1350)14b = #447
    or
    Carquest: S44 to 1350 (3/4/1 ton) 2-1153

    And yes they're pricey!

    alrighty, thanks. I did see a post in the 73-87 forum, but the info is contradicting. At least I am down to 2 different part numbers to try. Also, what will I need to do to the front driveshaft to get a dana 44 or dana 60 in there?

    Thanks for the info. I'm hitting the trail in the morning and no parts stores anywhere near where I am or where I'm going. I hate finding out somethings wrong with no time to fix. Guess I'll pick up that Napa 447 Monday.
    Wish me luck.
