This is the answer to one of my impending problems. I'll be in touch when I finish the frame and get Dshafts lengths figured out.

I’ve been wondering how I was going to solve that problem too.

It will be probably this time next year when I do the swap, but that’s another piece to the puzzle.

Yep your right it will work if you have newer large flanges but if you have the small zuk flanges your kinda screwd, for those that are lookin for a bolt on and go this should fill the bill.:D

Patent pending???????????????

Patent pending???????????

What the :flipoff2: some shops like my self do adapters all the time,,, hell all your trying to do is keep some one from knocking you off ,,, but It might work best if you charge a dissent price and make a good product... not saying your price is to high now or your parts don`t fit,,, but why would anyone need a patent on somethang so simple to design and make ,,, that and all it takes is one person to come forward and say "HA I DID THAT A YEAR AGO" and your SLO after spending over $10.000 for a patent

but I`d bet $10.00 that you never did turn in to get a patend on them ,,, but if you did please send me the application # so I can spend 5 min and do the 10% change to the part so I want have to worry about geting sued next time I make adapters for a custimer.

Who- some guys not out to just make a buck
Where- Canada eh:D
They're still around too. Making shaft adapters.

I know that the small flange can be used on the pinion simply by redrilling it to the toy bolt pattern. Like this.


You've got me on the tcase flange though, the only way I know how to make that work is by using an 88 and up flange and drilling it to the same bolt pattern as the toy shaft's cv end. Apparantley some know how to make it work.

Maybe he'll share some tech.:flipoff2:

From what I can tell Rockrat,
"So on these the holes are properly offset and studs are used both sides."
your design uses studs in the aluminum spacer. Kind of like a mini wheel spacer. I just don't know how strong that would be. Do you think that it's tough enough? Will the studs rip out? How thick are your spacers? Do you think some guys might have to shorten the toy shaft to make up for the thickness of the spacers? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just looking for tech.:D

First off not out just to make a buck, second crtitasm is encouraged, and as I have stated before the t-case is the problem, and to another post I could care less who copied I was trying get something out before someone large may jump on a band wagon IF IT is a profitable idea and screw everyone.
Now the tech they are 1/2" thick so they should work without having to shorten the shaft, as far as strength MY opinion is if all bolts or studs depending on which you choose to run are all tight I dont beleive ther is a problem with them ripping out I have another set being mocked up in steel and am possably going to go that route just because the steel is cheaper to purchace aluminum is a little high right now. the inside bore for nut clearence 1.40 bore to center for shaft centering 1.808 nice snugg fit. pinion on a zuk ceterlin radius for small flanges 3.126 center ring on a zuk 1.772 toyota bolt cicle 3.340 sqaure
cv sidebolt circle diameter 3.575 rectangle on an 81-83:D

A steel adapter with studs sounds a little better. IMO, for now it may be more durable to just use a large fange on the tcase and a regular adapter.

This setup allows the use of regular bolts and you only have to find one large Zuke flange. It's just another option that I thought I should put out there.:D

Too bad moto isn't telling how he used his small tcase flange.:flipoff2:

Thanks for the specs though and give us an update on the steel adapters when you can.:D
