Your going to have to make an adapter for the small flange on the t-case or get one from Glenn at RRO He posted on this a cpl wks ago I do believe it was $5.00 per flange just specify large and which output. As far as the axle as long as it is 4" across just clock and drill

Re: rear toyota d shaft conversion...

Just like the samurai toyota have two sizes of flanges. They have an eairly and late model. I'm not sure what years they switched but I think around '86, the late model flange is the one that is the same as the late samurai and Kick flanges.

Re: rear toyota d shaft conversion...

No! nothing fits the small t-case flange by itself you also have to open the center of the flange so the centering ring on the Toy shaft will fit into the t-case flange and Pinion flange inless you have yota axles then only the t-case is required

Re: rear toyota d shaft conversion...

No. I got a large flange and redrilled it. You'll end up with about a 1/16" of material on the outer edge of the large flange after it is drilled. You don't have to be consered of strength since the rotaional force is ont at all on the outer edge of the flange.
I've heard of somepeople having a convertion flange made. I don't know who sells them but I heard Tom Wood can make you one.

Re: rear toyota d shaft conversion...

I also only drilled my flanges to 3/8" instead of 10mm to leave a little more meat on the edge. Thought I was a genius until I came across the write up on IZOOK the suggests the same thing.

I had adapters made up for my Yota axle swap. They look like a little 3/4" thick driveline spacers. Bolts thread in from the two sides.
