Re: t-case flange swap

You can swap the fanges by removing the 27mm nut and just putting on the 86-88 flanges on. Or you can use the flanges for the u-joints, they are the same.

It is easy if you have an impact wrench and a air compressor. Oh yeah a punch.

Re: t-case flange swap

To swap out the flanges use a hammer and punch to uncrimp the nut on each flange. Then you'll need to keep the shaft from rotating while you break the nuts loose. Once you get them broken loose it's all over but the crying.

If you have spare 12mm flange slip yokes (some '88.5s have 12mm) you can use 12mm yokes on the tcase end of the shaft and 14mm on the differential end.
