How do I know if my slip yoke is bad?

How do I know if my slip yoke is bad?

Clunking sound, when going from acceleration to deceleration or deceleration to acceleration, may be caused by slip yoke problems. The splines may be worn. The yoke transmission extension housing bushing may also be worn. This will let the yoke move up and down with changes in drive line torque.

What does a slip yoke do?

The slip yoke is an important component of any drive shaft assembly. The slip yoke assembly (pictured on the right) is what allows drive shafts and PTOs to flex or slip with their given application. The slip yoke is also essential for allowing u-joints to rotate properly with the drive shaft.

How far does a slip yoke go into transmission?

DD: The slip yoke should be able to go into the tailshaft of the transmission so the barrel is fully inside the seal. Then, pull out the yoke 1 inch. This is the correct amount of spline contact for the slip yoke.

How much play should slip yoke have?

How much travel do you have before the slip yoke bottoms out inside the transmission? 1″-0.75″ is ideal. Quote: Have you checked your drive shaft angle to make sure your u-joints are in phase with one another as this will cause a vibration.

How far does driveshaft need to go into transmission?

3/4″ is recommended by most driveshaft builders, car sitting in its ride height.

How much does it cost to shorten a driveshaft?

Paid about $100 to have one shortened and balanced, and about $400 to have another lengthened and balanced.

How far should yoke stick out of 700r4 transmission?

What you need to do is put the driveshaft in, put the car on it’s wheels, and crawl underneath there and see how far out of the back of the trans the yoke is sticking. Remember, there needs to be at least 1.5″ of movement (in or out) from the position measured static on the wheels with the weight on it.

How much does a custom driveshaft cost?

New custom shafts are about $200-$300 depending if you want a CV shaft or not.

What is the difference between 1310 and 1350?

Size and strength. The 1310 series joint is what you would expect to find stock in most Jeep or small trucks. A 1350 series joint/shaft is what you might find in many full size trucks. While it’s not 100% accurate, you could say that a 1310 is a “half ton” joint and a 1350 is a “one ton joint”.

Is it expensive to replace a drive shaft?

Usually, the Drive Shaft Repair costs will differ based on what caused the issue and how fast it can be repaired. If you just have to replace it, that would be anywhere from $500 to $1000. However, you can also expect the cost of the parts to be around half that number and the labor costs around $200.

How long does it take to replace a drive shaft?

That’s very difficult to answer due to the multiple variables involved in removing and replacing hard to access components such as the center driveshaft on a front wheel drive vehicle like your Edge. However, in general, this type of job can often be completed in one business day; or less than 8 service hours.

What causes a drive shaft to fail?

Improper stiffness matching between the left and right smooth shafts, which results in a larger torque transmitted to the right spline, is the root cause of the drive shaft failure.
