    While swapping the yokes on my 205 I noticed that the ones I was taking off of the front have a "sheild" that is on the yoke, I guess to protect the seal from dirt/damage. The one from the back of the t-case didn't have the sheild. All 3 that I put on did not have any "sheilds". Is this something I should worry about? Does anyone sell a "sheild" that will go on a stock 1310 output yoke from a 203/205 since that's what I am running for my input and front output? The pics are for reference as to what I am referring to as a "sheild"

    u can get away w/out them espesailly if u don't run a lot of mud. even if u do worst case u will have to replace the seals more often

    i don't know where to buy them, probably randy's ring & pinion would be my first call.

    if u got the old yokes or some junk ones lying around that have the same size shaft u can hammer them off & back on to your new yokes.

    Ok, I may try to get the old ones off. I hit on one a bit and it seemed to break loose, it'll just take a while. I spend a lot of time in the mud, the only rocks around here are in my driveway /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I wish I could live in Az... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I was kind of wanting the sheilds on them because they are both on the front of the t-case. I don't know about on the highway either, if rain or road debris would be able to get in since they are facing toward the front? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    My front flange has nothing and I'm not worried a bit.

    Keep in mind that while that shields dirt out, it can hold it in too.

    Also, those things break loose from the yoke all the time and rattle like crazy.
