found a way to link from google photos, that's how they come in. Until GL4x4 makes photos great again, I'm not going out of my way to format stuff. If they yuge, they yuge.

Ordered new shifter cables for t-case and ordered driveshaft material. Not sure when alro drops got so damn expensive but it was literally cheaper to ship dom from who the fukc knows where than it was to drive up the road and pick it up by hand.

Driveshaft material showed up. No faith in this working but I own it so it's going in. Wallace Racing Driveshaft Calc says 995ft-lbs for torsion so on paper it's fine ish. Eye test says it's a toothpick.



I bought 1.75"x .250 wall to sleeve my driveshaft from 1 3/4 to the 1 3/8 so I had to turn the ID. Lathe work used to be fun, now it's just another thing that has to be done. That's how I know I need to wrench less and wheel more.....


Keeping runout to a minimum is always the obstacle. I turned the bushings until they were a transition fit. With that fitment the end of the driveshaft can still move .030" or more, so a much more sophisticated technique is needed to keep everything aligned while welding


Tacked together and bolted in to check clearances one more time before welding it solid. Immediately making a spare, no point in waiting. It either works or it doesn't and sometimes it never doesn't.

I also made the pictures smaller for the old man. Seems counter-intuitive but whatever, he's always been difficult.

Pics are perfect.

It will be fine. That's a thick wall, the torsional strength will be fine. Just because you have a loud muffler doesn't mean you have lots of HP.

In all seriousness, you won't have a vibration problem. Don't sweat it ~ run it.

Test fit with pass side front full stuff and drivers full droop. Verified I have to cut the thread and nut off the shifter knob.

Always paint that $.99 stuff when it's hot. I should be able to see if it rubs this way.

Don't forget the plugs. I hate welding them back up with ATF in the shaft. Always catches on fire.



Spare shaft didn't want to give up it's sleeve. Found my old plug welds. Plug weldz, the new X weld



Finished turning the new adapter sleeve last night so I should be able to clean this spare up and get that put together this week yet. Moving onto the other 20 things on the list soon. Should be able to drive again by the weekend. I should probably finish tuning it before I break it again. I'll add that to the list.

I know WhiteRhino is confused about why I'm working on this. I need to have wrist surgery later this year so I'm doing my September prep ahead of time. It's easier to motivate myself when I have a deadline approaching. This is different for me

Don't worry about balancing it. You won't be going that fast anyway.

Looks good.

Did you make sure the yokes were clocked the same?

Good eye. It doesn't look like it. No wonder he needs it balanced.

I dont think you will ever get a driveshaft with the yokes not lined up balanced. I once fought a nasty vibration with a professionally built and balanced driveshaft only to find out the it was assembled one splines worth off.

You mean the white lines, you don't worry about those white lines.

It's half ass assembled a spline or 2 off but it's aligned. Pull yoke, rotate, assemble. Easy peasy. The seam on the inside of the DS tube gives it away. Have to cut a slot in the adapters to get them to slide in. I drew that line down the tube with angle iron before I cut it apart.
