How much play should a slip yoke have?
The slip yoke should have ¾” before it would fully bottom out on the transmission output.
How far should the yoke go into the transmission?
CC: How much should the front yoke of a driveshaft engage the output shaft of the 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.
Can you cut a slip yoke?
you can cut on yolk all day it want make the part you need shortened any shorter.
What does a bad slip yoke sound like?
Typically, a drive shaft that is no longer balanced, or if part of it is wearing out, is going to make a noticeable and persistent squeaking sound. ... If you have a bad slip yoke in your drive shaft, it can produce clunking noises in your vehicle.
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.
How does slip yoke work?
The slip yoke is present to transfer power from your Jeep's transfer case to the driveshaft, sliding in and out of the transfer case. This sliding capability allows for changing length depending on the vehicle's movements.
How far does driveshaft need to go into transmission?
Somewhere between 3/4 and one inch out is sufficient/maximum. All you are trying to do is have enough clearance to prevent the yoke from pounding all the way in when the rear suspension bottoms out.
What happens if driveshaft is too long?
A shaft that is too long can bottom-out the slip yoke in the trans, causing damage. ... The shorter the shaft (4-link dragsters in particular) the more likely this can occur.
Can a driveshaft be lengthened?
To lengthen an existing drive shaft you need re-tube the drive shaft. First you will need to cut the weld yoke and stub off of the existing drive shaft. Then press in the new section of tubing into the old weld yoke and stub and re-weld the components onto the new tubing. Finally, the shaft must be balanced.
How do you shorten a drive shaft?
They take a diegrinder with a 3" cutoff wheel (or a hacksaw) and cut thru the weld at the cast end of the driveshaft. Knock out the cast end. Then a cut is made for the correct length of the shaft (hollow tube). It is good if this cut is straight, but not critical.
