    I recently read in 4 Wheel and Off-road that the new Ford superduty trucks use a huge CV-joint similar in design to the saginaw type joint used on the fronts of many older GM trucks. Supposedly this CV-joint has 1350-sized u-joints in it. Any truth to this? Is anyone here running a CV on the rear driveshaft?

    I crawled under an Expedition at an autoshow a few months ago and was amazed at the size of the CV joint in that thing. I need to investigate the part numbers for this, in particular any Spicer p/n to replace it. I am planning to use a Saginaw CV joint on my rear shaft. I fabricated a drive flange for this. See attached photo. I was told the journals in the Saginaw CV are larger that the Spicer. I have not checked firsthand.

    Yes, the saginaw journals are larger than the spicer, only a lit bit.
    Spicer are 1310 Series
    Siginaw are 1330 Series
    P.S. the Spicer 1310 Series was used on the front of the one ton's Dana(Spicer) 60's from about 1977-198?
    IMHO they are plenty stong for there size.

    This is a 1350 CV joint on a 203 t-case thats in a 64 Chevy.

    The guys name is Jesse Jaynes and he can make these and also a 80 degree extreme angle 1350 and 1410 CV joints. I saw a Ford truck in the latest off-road mag with 1510 joints between the 2 transmisions he had!

    I run a big Caddy saginaw CV in my rear shaft, the joint is that big GM that is similar in strength and size to the 1330, so far its run real well, and the flange to connect it to my 203, came out of a dodge and was readily available, the whole setup wasn't real cheap since i bought the cv and flange new from the shop, if i ever do it again, for a back up, i'll go the the junkyard and cut a joint out of a caddy myself.
