got a simple question I need answered....

alright I got a local driveshaft place to make me a rear double cardon shaft for quite cheap and he needs me to take both t case and rear axle flanges off plus d shaft so he can see what all he needs to do my question is can I just take the flanges off? when I do can I just bolt them back on?

Why can't you just give him the shaft. That should be all he needs.

You can take them off but then you'll have to re-torque them after your done or else you'll blow some bearings.

Re: got a simple question I need answered....

Have you got a drive shaft spacer? He can use that instead to get the dimensions he needs, probably to turn down the lip to fit inside. Make sure there is clearance for the pinion nut also. If you pull the flange off the third member, you really are supposed to replace the crush sleeve for the proper pinion bearing preload. If you pull one from the t-case, no big deal, just torque it back down and bend the nut lip back into the groove.
