    What's the best way to do my rear drive shaft, (with my 208-fixed rear yoke I'm buying), that I can realistically afford?
    Other than going square.

    Swap in a 241; you can get a SYE for those pretty readily. Of course, there's the electrical vs mech speedo thing to handle, but I think the shifter might work just fine.

    I guess I'm horrible at asking questions..............



    What I meant to say is:


    I'm buying a 208 with a fixed rear yoke (dodge parts) from a friend next week, it also has a clocking ring attached!

    My question is:

    What are my options concerning the rear drive shaft. I have a spare front one off a K-10 with a 208 as well as a spare rear off the same truck. Could those be cut up and mated together. And it is a DD as well.

    You'll be awakened at "da Thump" by the sound of duct tape being wound around yer truck! :D

    Finally removed it and cut the little shield ring off last week. :wink1:

    have fun drilling and tapping an output shaft. they should be hardened unless you have a faulty one.

    If you have a lathe it should be no problem . I have a couple at my disposal:D. I was actually thinking about doing this but I am a little wary of any possible post machining issues with the shaft.

    The ouput shaft drills like butter with the correct type drill bits
