ok so to start with i have a v6 tcase going to a 4cyl 3rd in the front. i am trying to make a back up front shaft and need to find out about getting a part.
the exact name eludes me at the moment but its the part that houses the ujoint and connects to the tcase flange. i have extras of the other end from broken rear drive shafts. so can any one tell me the specific name or where i can find some? the junk yards only sell whole shafts as one would imagine and i dont wanna spend 75 bucks on one for the one part i am gonna cut off to put on square tube.

an alternate question would be can i put the other style flange on the front? are they interchangeable? can i take a flange off an extra 3rd member and put it on the tcase?
thanks

I consider the part that houses the u-joint on the driveshaft side the yoke. Now the part that houses the joint that bolts to the flange on the case or 3rd,I consider that a flange.

I was under the impression that some Toy flanges have a different bolt pattern. I think the newer (14mm bolt) flanges are all the same. The older (12mm bolt) flanges vary from t-case to 3rd members. Don't quote me on this,but I think this is all true.

You can drill the flange for the correct bolt pattern, all four of the flanges on my truck are drilled for either one!!!!:D
My spare shaft flange will have a different bolt pattern than my t-case flange's. I went ahead and drilled both t-case flanges for both patterns,that way I will be able to run my spare shaft front or rear. Oh I've got Dana yokes on the other ends so no worries there about any bolt pattern's.

Which part do you need? One end has a slip joint, the other has a CV joint (aka double cardan joint). And, do you need the whole end assembly or just the piece of the yoke that bolts to the flange?

i have decided i should just drill the flange so they all have the same bolt pattern. so i have plenty of spare stuf here broken rear shafts to make my new front and spare front. thanks for all the advise and help!:flipoff2:
