So will this work on short 300s, or just the long shafts?

Hey the output shaft will be available through JB Conversions and also the kit only works for the long shaft but I will ship you a Dana 300 with the short shaft installed for $700.00. Then you could sell your old one to make up some of the cost.
Thanks
Keith

So, this heavy duty 32 spline shaft that is made from aluminium is somehow STRONGER? than a similar sized steel shaft?

I guess that metallurgy has change a lot since my classes in the 90s

Goods nice though

Big Shaft Kit

The housing is heat treated aluminum; the shaft is 8620 heat treated alloy.

The AA kit is a good kit and we don't know of any failures. We feel our kit is better for the following reasons.

The AA housing is not designed for the attachment of an ebrake. Our housing is beefed up heavily to handle the load generated by the use of ebrake components. The result is a stronger housing.

We also spot machine each bolt seat location so the bolt head pulls down level on the housing and doesn't create stress that could crack the housing. The "draft" required to allow the part to release from the mold causes the casting to made with a slanted surface here (ours and theirs). This results in the bolts making point contact instead of flat contact. With our spot face, the point contact never happens.

We also use an aluminum match-plate mold instead of a wood/sand combo. This is a fully machined mold that yields a precise casting. Look at the edges and corners of our housing and you can see the difference (1st four photos attached). You can also see the two dowel pin holes used in conjunction with 6 tapered head cap screws to secure the ebrake bracket.

Our housing (bottom) has a much more massive casting as you can see here in a comparison of the top of each piece.

We also use an angled drill on the CNC to create the vent/drain back hole. We don't drill through from the outside and fill the hole with a push-plug. Look at the upper side of the competitors housing and you will see the cap plug siliconed in place.

We go all-out on the shaft also. The shaft on the right is ours. We fully grind the shaft except of areas with splines. We pay attention to machining detail and make sure the spline runout doesn't get into areas of the shaft not meant for splining. You will notice no spline cuts below the lower snap ring on our shaft.

Any area of the shaft that contacts a gear is precision ground on our shaft. The shaft on the right is ours. You will notice a grinded seat area above the lower clutch spline on our shaft. This is the area where the helical gear contacts during operation. We grind the surface within 0.0005" to provide a smooth seat for the gear.
