They are all the same, the Dana 5-4x, 1300 series, precision 344.

Much cheaper and easier through the club....... Actually complete new GKN propshafts are cheap through the club. If you are in a rush, I'm sure many club members have one sitting there. I have a couple, I think, and could pass on to a Edmontonian later today.

The problem there is that Spicer hasn't made them in at least 2 years. Occasionally one can find NOS given enough time.
Best option now is GKN, Neapco or Precision.

I know the Dana 5-4x will work for the rear propshaft but are you sure they
will also fit front propshaft ?

Should be the same front and rear. The change was based on time... Series 3 and early 90/110/127s used the 1310 joint. Early on in the 90/110 history they switched to the 1300. All joints in the truck, should be the same.

Aack a bit late. I forgot and am now back in Calgary. I'm sure Bill or Dave or someone should have some. A bunch of them are probably still on the road back from the trip.

I posted this in your other thread of the same title.

As far as I know there were only two u-joints used on all Land Rovers we see in North America.
1300 Series
2.938" cap to cap and 1.063" cap dia
Neapco 1-0005 - about $15 at Advance Auto or Precision 344 - about $25-$30 NAPA, O'Reilly, etc.

1310 Series
3.219' cap to cap and 1.063" cap dia
Neapco PN 1-0154 from Advance, Spicer 5-153x $25 or $30 most places, or Precision 380, about the same price as Spicer

If yours is an '83 it's probably the 1310, but you can measure it to make sure.

I'll add that the Neapco's listed and the Precision 380 have the zerk on the end cap, if that matters to you. I think Spicer also makes a 1310 with the zerk in the end cap, but I don't know the PN.
Last time I checked (several years ago) the NAPA u-joints were made in China, but they change suppliers all the time so YMMV.

Thanks guys..
this is where it gets alittle weird i suppose. My Truck is an 83, or rather was an 83 before i started the 300 install. Basically i have now modified the truck to be set up as a stock 300tdi (ie put the engine in its factory position). So the propshafts are of different length then the originals.. the only issue is that what the parts manual tells me is the proper UJ is not The ones it is asking me to install are huge, and will not fit

So, get the other ones. No telling what has been done in the intervening 3 decades since your truck was built. My 90 has the small UJs on one driveshaft and the big ones on the other. I can never remember which is which.
