This will work, I can bring it with me tomorrow. What time will you get out of work John? I don't start until 6pm, but I could get there a little bit earlier if you wanted.

Sounds good, I will toss it in the car when I get home in the AM just to make sure I have it. I will see you Thursday.

I bought a set of 289 manifolds from somebody on this site that used them in a Ranger like yours. They were to close to my firewall in my 90 Bronco2 so I didnt use em. LMK if you wanna see em.

Also, I used a Canton 90 adapter for my oil filter relocation. Its a way nicer part than those others.

We realized today at lunch, was that his frame is a 2wd 4cyl ranger frame. 2wd ranger frames use a different engine cross member then a 4wd ranger.

Did you have to do much cutting to make these fit?? The problem with using a 2wd header (especially a 3/4 or full length) is the engine on a 4x4 is offset to the passenger side. This usually creates clearance issues with the frame. Also, the steering gear box location on a 4X4 tends to get very much in the way of certain header designs.
I had to cut maybe 1/4'' at the most on the passengger side upper frames rail to allow a little more room for the motor to torque back and forth. Othere then that i had no clerance issues gear box is no where close to them the steering shaft has about 3/8'' clerance.

I am using this oil filter adapter it includes everything youll need its a lil spendy but the quality is great and ive never had problems with mine in the 2 yrs ive had it.

Those do fit quite nicely. How much below the frame is your exhaust tubing? From the pics it looks rather low, might be prone to mother nature re-adjusting them for you Have you thought about adding to your cross member to include oil pan protection?

Kyle & John - The block adapter is in my car ready for tomorrow
John - Give me a call when you leave work, thanks.

The pass. side hangs a lil low but the upper link protects them quite nicely. The driver side is completly above the frame rail. And yes full skid plates are on my list just havent got to it yet.

Brandon, thanks! John, thanks also!

I need a bit of help....

I went out and measured all my yokes for drive shafts. I have (2) 205's, ones has 1330 yokes and the other has 1310 yokes front and rear.

I measured my front 60 and that has a 1330 yoke and my 14 bolt has a 1350 yoke.

Ok, with all that done, I know I don't want to run a 1330 joint right? I hear they are junk.

I want to run a 1310 joint in the front for space reasons and I have (3) 1310 shafts, but that means I need a new yoke for the 60 to do that. I found one on JBG for $62, sound alright?

Then on the rear I was thinking of running a 1350 joint which means I need a new yoke for my 205. I also need to find a shaft or 2 I can use to make a new one for me. I found a 205 yoke for $59, resonable?

Can I run a 1310 on the rear also? Would it be strong enough? I have a couple of those shafts already too, but it looks like I can't get a 1310 yoke and would need to mod the 1350 yoke or run a conversion joint. Would that be bad?


What should I do for shafts? 1310 on the front and 1350 in the rear? Or 1310's all around with a conversion joint at the 14bolt?

Thanks

I did the whole conversion joint thing on my rear driveshaft. It worked at first but became a hassle and joints broke etc.

Running straight 1350 on the rear now and haven't had any issues. I found a driveshaft from 3/4 ton chevy vans and suburbans were an easy junk yard mark for 1350s.

I've been running 1310 on the front with no issues since getting the right style tcase yoke.

I would get the trail repair yoke kit from jbg vs just the yoke on the front. Couple $ more and get quite a bit more.

I'm running a 1310 to 1330 conversion joint on the front and a 1310 to 1350 conversion joint on the rear. Both 1310 CV's at the T-case. I carry a spare of each conversion joint as CTB2 pointed out that the conversion joints aren't usually in stock in BFE when you need them most. I also bring spare front and rear DS with me. I'm linked in the rear so I don't have nearly as much axle wrap to deal with as a leaf setup. I don't actually wheel, and when I do I rarely use the go pedal so this probably adds nothing to this conversation . I still have CTB2's box of spare driveshaft components I can bring over to him. I have to go get my limit straps from this summer anyway. The trail repair kit seemed like the most bang for the $ when I was debating on changing the D60 yoke.

The trail repair kit is $69 verse the $62 for just the yoke. Ok, gonna run a straight 1310 in the front.

I might just buy a conversion joint for the rear right now, because i don't feel like spending $100 buying new shafts to make a 1350 and the rear 205 yoke. I can spend $25 now on a 1310 to a 1350 joint and just start collecting parts to make a 1350 rear shaft.
