Pretty much.

Haven't fixed my junk since the last time out. Currently selling a house, moving, putting an offer in on another house and changing jobs. Then I have to meet some peeps in the Boyne City/Petoskey area that will let me actually use that POS I built Focusing on other things at the moment. Kyle M. is hooking me up with a modified yoke (thanks man ). I already have another driveshaft ready to go. I will have to fix that whole link crossmember falling out from under the jeep thing though still All in due time. It's not like I took 3.5yrs to build a Jeep I've used 3 times or anything

Ok, got the yoke done, here's the run down in what I did.....
This is the stock 1350, 14 bolt yoke and u bolts I started with

Started off my measuring the bolt spread on the U bolts I had and found that they were the same, center to center as the tapped holes on the yoke. So I drilled them out to a 13/32 to clear the 3/8" u bolt.



Next I machined off the face roughly .225" so the u bolt could clamp on the u joint


Next I machined a flat on the back so the nut had an area to rest flat on. I made the thickness about .950" so the threads stuck out far enough to engage on the nut. I also used a cutter with a radius on the edge to help keep some strength in the yoke.



And the finished yoke



I had about 25 min into it, easy to do with the proper equipment.

Another trip, lost a little paint, sector shaft seal on the powersteering box is leaking really bad a week after replacing it Looks like the front inner axle seal leaking, t-case leaking at the trans and the steering box leaking. Good times. Pics and vid to follow. Absolutely awesome group, couldn't ask for a better group of people to wheel with. Everyone was getting it, but not to the point of breaking and holding up the group. Can't ask for more than that. Only cable I pulled all weekend was to help Erin look at a tire. Best trip yet!
