I have the 1975 14 bolt diff under my Jimmy now (last spring). I have the conversion u-joint under there to fit the original turbo 350 driveshaft to the 14 bolt yoke. I have an extra driveshaft for wheelin and a gift card to Lordco:) . Can someone tell me the part # for that u-joint so the guys at Lordco are mot mistified?:p

those conversion ujoints r crap. if you insist on continuing using them buy a few and keep them in ur glovebox.

And if you go to Lordco and see Greg, he is pretty hard to "mistify", he will know exactly what you are talking about and will tell you the same thing.

I've been running conversion joints for 3 years and have had 0 failures. Just because i have no choice. I hope to get rid of them when i do my doubler.

Not the same one, but I run this shitty puu-joint in my truck but have decided to go with a more standard size because I broke every single spicer u-joint in canada in the last few months, and blew the shit out of my yoke. Just becomes a hassle changing them and trying to get them all the time I think.

Its all relavent. I do agree that conversion joints are not the best way to go. But, I think you were with me when my little tiney ski doo motor broke a chromo and a detroit

you could always change the tube yoke on your driveshaft so you don't have to run a conversion joint:confused0006:

I agree,talk to Greg or Gina(my wife) they'll be able to get what you need and will know what your talking about.

The problem is, My 9" yoke is a 1330S, all the other stuff is 1330. When i Ordered my Hi9, I didn't know that i couldn't get the other end of the Dshaft in a 1330S. so.. Its all 1330, but the one at the diff is 1330-1330S conversion joint.

1330 = 1 1/16" caps
1330S= 1 1/8" caps
Thats the only difference

just cut the end off and get it welded and trued so you don't need the conversion or hoone(SP) the female part to accept the 1330s jiont

honing 1/16" inch is quite a bit
