Installing Great Basin Rovers Driveshafts

Hey gang, out in the garage putting on my new GBR HD driveshafts but have run into an issue. Starting on the rear, the adapter plate that bolts to the rear diff has a lip that prevents it form sitting completely flush. For those that installed these, is the little gapp supposed to be there?


Thanks!

Hey Chris

Doing a Double double Cardon jont?

The "lip" is it on the inside of the adaptor? The adaptor should have a "pilot" so that it centers on the pinion flange and fits flush... It is probably a tight fit... In no case should the adaptor be away from a flange unless it is supported by something... If so you will have a vibration..

You can call me if you like I've installed a dozen or so.. The # is on my website..

Chris, I just installed a front one. (The new one I bought on the site for $50 ) Had no problem. Like Keith said, it squeezes into the flange and sits flush.

You and your $50 deal of the year. ugh, I should have jumped on that one when I saw it posted.

Yeah the problem was that that it all fits together a lot better when you dont put the shaft on backwards. Once Bill explained that the double cardon ends are to be mounted at the transfer case, not the diff, things went a lot smoother.

Digging up an old thread... Tony and I tried to mount my GBR front drive shaft yesterday only to find that it appears to be a difference in the mounting studs off the front of the transfer case between a 94 D90 and the 97's because these just dont line up with the holes. I had the shaft mounted on the 94 but it wont couple with the flange on the 97

Is this in fact true??

Is it an early GBR double cardon? If so it should have an adaptor from the output flange to the flange on the drive shaft.
I believe that the only other output flange I am aware of the was attached to an LT230 was the D2 type for the factory Double cardon driveshaft.

There are two different front output flanges. The later flange will allow you to run the shaft without a spacer. The earlier one will not as the holes are a smaller pattern. If you have the older style, I would buy a new flange rather than the adapter, as running no adapter is stronger and less headache. However, it may not be possible if the shaft is build shorter for the adapter. Clear as mud?

Hmm thanks guys..
I have one space plate with the front shaft that I swore came off the t-case/double cardon end when i pulled it off the 94. It will mount to the axle end but niether that nor the holes on the axle will line up at the t-case end.

Kieth I guess it might be.. I would say its about 5 years old.

Sound like Buck saying there are 2 different sizes is whats killing me here.

I have a bunch of stuff here if you need an old style flange, or old style adapter.

they quit using adapters now. The one I bought last year for the front had one. The new one for the back does not.

Hey Chris. I got your pm. If you can get ahold of the d2 flange, replace that and keep the dshaft. That's the better way to do it! Good luck.
