Yota Driveshaft question

I just got my yota shafts back and I started to drill the flanges and I noticed that the driveshaft flange will not clear the pinion flange nut. Has anyone had this problem?

Re: Yota Driveshaft question

howdy,
my buddy had this problem and he followed the instruction on izook. here's the link <a target="_blank" href=http://www.izook.com/tech/toyotadriveshaft_installation.htm>http://www.izook.com/tech/toyotadriveshaft_installation.htm</a> . half way down the page it mentions "The driveshaft alignment flange is about 2mm larger on the Toyota driveshaft than the Samurai. This is the reason for removing the transfer case flange and having it machined. Removing this small amount of material on the inside of the flange, making the alignment hole larger will not affect the strength of the flange. Machining this flange down on the driveshaft itself is NOT recommended."

hope this helps.

Re: Yota Driveshaft question

3 options as long as the part the other poster has been turned down, 1, gring the nut/pinion end down to fit or have the ID of the driveshaft bored out, or last and the one I used (And the Izook artical) a small spacer.
I just used an extra tracker flange with the splines and center bored out so it make a 3/8" spacer.
Hope that helps.
