Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the rear driveshaft off of a Bronco II can be cut to fit a YJ with a SYE. Does anyone know if this will work or have you tried this? Thanks for your help.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

I haven't tried it but anything can be made to fit. If you just need to shorten it a chop saw will work and then weld it up with a sleeve inside or outside the tube. The only problem area is balancing. If it's a trailer queen don't worry about it but if it's a daily driver you want to have it balanced by a driveline shop.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

Many Grand Waggies have CV shafts on the front, but they are small diameter tubing. Still adding thicker tubing to the CV and such could be cheaper than having one custom built...add a waggie CV shaft to a tractor PTO driveshaft and what do you have? A long travel CV shaft.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

Thanks,

I would think that it would work, I would have to have it balanced it is not a dailey driver but it does get driven to and from the trail, but that is cheap, I am working on a budget here, but do not want to compromise strength, I would think that Ford would use genuine spicer parts and it should be pretty strong. I will have to look into it farther, thanks for your help.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, the broncoIIs used a 1310 u joint just like the wrangler.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

I don't know U-joints so well, but would this work on a Dana 20 to Model 20 of a CJ?

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

I would question wether or not they are spicer parts. My company makes 3 million flat flanges a year and every one of them has the ford oval cast into them. As far as I know most of fords driveline is machined at or thru Visteon wich is no longer ford.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

It might not be a spicer part, but it is an interchangable part. My explorer uses a spicer yoke on the rear and the one on the TC is stamped ford but the front and rear joints of the driveshaft are the same size. basicly any u-joint in a rear wheel drive aplication can be cross-referenced to a spicer#. When I had the rear shaft of my wrangler rebuilt and balanced they used spicer joints, but when the joint blew from driver error(too much right foot) I replaced it with a napa joint that I had as a spare for my explorer. Same joint only the napa one wasn't made by spicer.

Re: Junkyard CV Drive Shaft??

You're right. If anybody ever needs any pinion flanges, flat flanges,or slip yokes for fords, drop me an e-mail. Odds are we probably make it or have one laying around.

I have the SYE from RE(flange style), and the bronco style will fit, just take it to your local machine shop, and they can cut it to length,and true it up... if you have a yoke SYE you can get a cv from the front of a waggy, or a 79~f150(dad has one stock)front... also the front tjs will fit too..
