Default u joint measurement

does anyone know off hand what the standard u joint size that GM would use on a S-10 blazer? is it a 1310, 1330, or 1350? i've heard of them being called a 3 rivers joint which i'm guessing is it's own unit. basically what i need to know is which pinion yoke to buy to run my waggy D44's with stock S-10 blazer driveshafts.

If you have the mating parts why not measure them?

It depends on your T-case, trans, and motor.

I used to mess around with S-trucks quite a bit, and the rear driveshafts were specific to specific options. The bigger the motor the bigger the U-joints, and the push button T-cases in the later models used fullsize stuff where the earlier manual shift T-cases used smaller joints.

X3 on trying autozone or just measuring what you have.

3R joints (Saginaw) have clips on the INSIDE of the driveshaft and pinion yoke. There is only one size.

1310/1330 (Spicer) have clips on the OUTSIDE of the u-joint caps. Size is as follows:

1310: Width 3.219, Cap OD 1.063
1330: Width 3.625, Cap OD 1.063

ok so what i've found is that all my driveshafts are 3 rivers joints. even the 1 ton driveshaft i have uses the same size joint as my s-10 blazer. thats handy to know that one size fits all.
