Front 10 bolt yoke

I am going to purchase a 1 ton CV shaft from Jesse at HighAngleDriveline. The question is I would like to convert the 10 bolt yoke to accept a 1350 u-joint instead of the 1310/1330 (can't remember which it is). I know I can use a hybrid joint but it's only as strong as the weakest link, plus someday I WILL have a D60. Is there a way to modify the existing yoke, is there a yoke that you can buy, or am I SOL.
Thanks.

If you didn't built it yourself, how can you call it yours.......

Re: Front 10 bolt yoke

I'm sure you can change the output yoke on your front 10bolt to match with the 1350 size ujoint/shaft.
I bought the Dana/Spicer brand 1350 output yoke for my D60, but yet to put it on. It's straight forward though. Just unbolt that big ole nut holding the yoke down (I think it's 1 5/8") and pull the yoke, then put the new one in, and tighten that down, and you're done.

I dont mean to be a smarta$$ but arent you supposed to set the preload on the pinion bearing when you retighten instead of just tightening it down ? and seal the splines so gear oil doesnt leak back out between the splines on the yoke and the splines on the pinion shaft ?

Boss is omiting the following steps. Finding a socket that big, I used grandpas 1 1/2 drive set and then you need to find a pipe to put on it. Then lay on your back and put both feet on it and push as hard as you can. Have defibulator handy. And count the turns of the nut too so you can get it set back ok. Buy a new pinion seal for good measure too. Its not rocket science but it is hard to get it off.
