    This might be handy for you junkyard cruisers... a U-joint ruler

    I "acquired" this ruler from work:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, it's got inches and all the important driveshaft U-joint sizes marked on it (including some that most of you will never use... like an 1880!).
    My thought was that y'all that were interested could print it out on some greeting card stock, laminate it, and go measuring away. But I forgot that the CK5 pic gallery only allows 640x480 max pic size. So if you would like the fullsize image...

    PM me with your email address

    and I'll send you the big picture (2820x432, 181K). You must send me an email address, or I can't send you the fullsize image.

    Those are real handy, I have several of them in my box at work.

    Most places that supply u-joints for semis give them away.

    An 1880 is a monster; a fine-spline transmission output yoke for an 1880 weighs about 20lbs...
    I said it in a previous thread - some of the stuff I see and work on at work makes a 14FF look like something from a Toyota.

    cool stuff. Wonder what kind of angles these huge joints are capable of running. Anyone have specs on the stuff beyond 1410?

    Generaly all semi u-joints run at specified angles, we use a driveline angularity program to set them up. If they are off just a few degrees it will shake the teeth right out of yer head and destroy the joint.
