    Ok here is the deal I'm putting a 14ff in my 85 K5 and so far everything has gone pretty smooth. I have finally come across the problem of my driveshaft u joint from the blazer does not fit the pinion yoke on the 14ff. How can I fix this? Can I pull the pinion yoke off of the old 10 bolt and put it on the 14ff? I tried going to autozone to find a u joint that would fit both and I couldn't find one. Is there a special u joint that I can put in it and if so who makes it and where can I find one?

    You need Napa #447 - that's a 1330/1350 combo. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    they won't know what the hell you're talknig about at Advance for sure. best bet just get a new yoke on the driveshaft welded on, for me it was only $15 for the yoke plus having it welded on. i think he may have screwed up though /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
