    Hey guys, I'm working on my 76 Scout plow truck and the front drive shaft was installed with the slip yoke (female end) on the front drive shaft to the transfer case instead of the way my blazer is, with it on the front axle. Is this wrong or doesn't it matter? (seems like it would be more able to get water/snow in it that way). Both u-joints are the same so?
    I have no reference on this truck. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gifplease & Thanks.

    I dont really remember which way mine is mounted, but I think it's with the slip yoke on the transfer case end. But of coarse I dont know if that's right or not. I think I'm going home tomorrow, I'll try to remember to look.

    Do you have any pics of your Scout?

    Sorry but no, it's just a work truck for now. Looks like I will need to check back later, I need to get some work done on it now. Check back soon.

    I emailed the guys on a IH list I'm on and they said the slip yoke should go on the transfer case end.

    Think one of the COS 4x4 shops told me they slips always go 'highest' (near the x-fer case) on them! Have always done that on the 4 I had.
