Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

Hi

1980 toyota diffs.
1887 samurai transfercase

The hole patterns on the diffs do not match either a large or small flange zuk transfercase.

Do you drill out the transfercase or diff flange.

Zuk drive shaft up front ! ***** Drill diff flange

Front toyota shaft in the rear ! *** drill transfercase flange

Or is there some kind of ready made adapter ??

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

I'm doing the swap now! I'm useing the Toy front drive shaft for the rear of the Zuk! If you have the 14mm bolt size for the t-case flange then it will bolt up, if not then you'll have to drill the t-case flange on the Zuk.

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

There must be a bolt size/pattern difference between the different toyota production years.

I checked the bolt pattern on my front toyota drive shaft from the 1980. It does not mate with either size zuk bolt size/pattern. The flanges also will not mate without removing metal from either flange.

What year toyota did your toyota front drive shaft come from ?

The front Double Cardan bolt flange patern is bigger then the Large suzuki flange, but the other side is the same as the large flange .. you can contact SkyMfg for the adapter
[email protected] I believe .. he is also on the topica board and said his web site should be in less then a week.

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

Hey guys,

The Toy pickups changed their flange pattern around 1984 or so - it was kinda like the Suzuki - went from smaller to larger bolt hole & larger patten diameter.

HTH,

Yep, Must be why my 86 toy axles will work and your 80 axles won't! I don't see why you just couldn't drill the right size hole in the flange?

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

The machined circle in the middle of the Toy or Zuk driveshaft flange is called a pilot. The diameter's of the Toy vs. Zuk pilots are not the same. You can get away with using a 85.5-and-newer Samurai yoke with the newer Toy pattern - the bolt holes line up nicely. But when you start redrilling bolt holes, the whole thing won't be aligned because of that ~1/6" difference in the pilot diameters.

BTW - not sure how the earlier Toy vs. Sam patterns compare...

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

when using toyota axles with a 1.3 zuk motor,lockers, & 4.16 t-case, are people blowing up birfield joints?

Re: Toyota Axles: drive shaft adapters or what

I haven't heard of anyone breaking one with all Suzuki drivetrain. With big enough tires I'm sure you could manage it, tho.
