What is the difference between 1330 and 1350 U joint?

Last Updated: 16th February, 2020

The 1310 series u-joint measures approximately 3 1/4 inches wide. The 1330 and 1350 both measure approximately 3 5/8 wide. The 1350 series has a cap diameter of 1 3/16 inch and the body and journals are bigger than the 1310 or 1330. Remember 1350 is almost never found in production car driveshafts.

Also to know is, what size is a 1330 U joint?

Driveshaft and Driveline Parts > Universal Joints > U-Joints BY SIZE > 1330 Series U-Joint 3.625 X 3.625 - 1.062 - 1.125 outside snap ring > 1.062 X 1.062 Bearing Cap Diameter.

Likewise, what is the difference between 1310 and 1350? it isn't that the 1310 can't cant break axles , it is that the 1350 and 1410 yokes are beefy and tolerate more rock rash then the 1310. you rarely ever see a driveline ujoint break from torque. they break from the yokes grinding on rocks. and that is why the toyota style yokes are superior in design.

Just so, how strong is a 1310 U joint?

A 1310 u-joint is supposed to be good for 400ft/lbs of continuous torque and 800ft/lbs of short duration torque. The 1330 is good for 550 and 1000 respectively. The 1350 is good for 680 and 1240 respectively.

How long does it take to change U joints?

two hours

Are CV joints better than U joints?

CV vs U-Joints
If they aren't, then a CV joint is necessary. As mentioned previously, there's no reason to swap a CV and U-joint all willy nilly. In fact, U-joints are the stronger and cheaper of the two, so there is no reason to use a CV joint unless it is required by the constraints of your vehicle's driveline.

How much is a slip yoke trip?

As a general rule of thumb I would recommend 70% of the length the tranny would accept as the proper ammount to go inside the slip yoke. Whenever there was doubt this rule never failed us. Thanks. The transmission is a fixed yolk, driveshaft is 3 piece and this is the rear section of the 3 piece driveshaft.

Why does a drive shaft have a slip joint?

The drive shaft and U-joints provide a means of transferring engine torque to drive axles. Some drive shafts also have a slip joint that allows the drive shaft to make minor length changes as the vehicle suspension height changes.

How does a slip yoke work?

What is a Slip Yoke Eliminator or an SYE? A slip yoke eliminator (SYE) eliminates the slip yoke from your drivetrain, turning it into a fixed yoke. A longer driveshaft means you'll have a flatter drivetrain angle, reducing vibrations and wear on drivetrain parts if your Jeep has an agressive lift installed.

How much slip should driveshaft have?

Any time you lift or lower your vehicle, you should have your driveshaft checked for proper clearance. How much slip travel should I have? In most applications the minimum is 3/4 inch and more than 1 inch is not necessary.

How do you count yoke splines?

Spline Count
Yes you may find that your slip yoke has the space where one spline is missing. When counting splines you always count the actual spline tooth and you will always add one more to your total count when you see the space. For example on a GM TH-350 slip yoke you may see 26 internal splines and a space

How far should slip yoke go into 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.

How long can a one piece driveshaft be?

A one-piece steel shaft can't be longer than 72″ from the center of the u-joint at one end to the center of the u-joint at the other end. If you have need for a driveline to be longer than 72″, it can be converted to a 2-piece driveshaft or built using aluminum tubing.

What is the minimum U joint operating angle that manufacturers recommend?

The U-joints require a minimum working angle of 1/2 degree to ensure needle-roller movement in the U-joint bearings. Without this movement, brinelling of the trunnion bearing contact surfaces would occur.

How do universal joints work?

Universal joints allow drive shafts to move up and down with the suspension while the shaft is moving so power can be transmitted when the drive shaft isn't in a straight line between the transmission and drive wheels. Rear-wheel-drive vehicles have universal joints (or U-joints) at both ends of the drive shaft.

How do you measure drive shaft length?

If the driveshaft in your vehicle is of this style, measure the distance from the end of the transmission shaft to the centerline of the rear u-joint. If the driveshaft is out of the vehicle, also measure how far the transmission output shaft sticks out past the end of the transmission case.

What is AU joint?

A universal joint (U-joint) is a mechanical joint used for connecting shafts that rotate and are aligned at different angles to each other. The drive shaft and U-joints connect the transmission to the rear drive axle on most rear-wheel drive vehicles.

How is PTO series calculated?

The most accurate way to determine the correct series is to measure the outside diameter of the bearing cap and the U-joint from one end of the cap to the other. The location of the snap ring is another determining factor. Here's a handy tool to help you determine your North American, Italian, or German PTO series.
