Chassis and Suspension / chassis mods
« Last post by dsrace on January 09, 2019, 06:50:31 PM »
so a fella i know named jack has a turbo 2.3 rail he needed modified. he is about 6'3" and getting up there in age with some knees that dont bend so great so more. he needed more head clearence and a lower side rails to get in and out easier. so i finally agreed to make a few changes for him. the chassis was built by the same guy in utah that built dougs yellow turbo 2.3 rail.  also wanted me to add eps to it. so here are some pics of what i have done so far.

so larry short of short sand cars used to have a custom shaft made that was a  1.25" od, 10 splined but missing 1 spline. this was because he used a 4 link rear end with u joints and he used the u joints off the late 60's 2wd chevy's with 2 pice drive shafts. they had a dead spline to line them up. when i started building way back i bought the shafts from larry's supplier, zimmerman machine in utah. the shafts were 4130 hardened and no one ever broke those. now the custom stub axles he used that were quadzilla size shafts to run quadzilla hubs, were through hardened and he ran 12" dia wheels. those shaft were 1045 like most production car axles , then hardened. his stubs were 50/50 if they lasted lol

 i see on  g&g's site that the splined shafting is offered in   1045, 1144 and 4140. if protodie were smart , then they ordered all 4140. i bet there ordering it in 1045 as thats rated for high tq on ag equipment. the part people fail to understand when looking at ag tq #'s is thats all lower rpm.  to put this in perspective for those that have never driven a tractor......1500 rpm on a pto is pretty high rpm on the crank of an older diesel tractor.

Mine is g&g 21 fully splined. Or it was before I sold the that spool. I bought from Jody at protodie he had it heat treated. Seems like about $50?  It looked new when I pulled out of car.  Car was 1125 but was back when was a 3 seater. I shaved some weight when I carved it but prob still close after turbo stuff. Rpm box about same weight as spool.

No sir, no lip.  I do check them before every trip though. 

That shaft is a G&G 21 spline shaft.  Model# 112A2221.  There is no spec on material type.  I may have to contact G&G to get that info so see if I can even heat treat it.

Yup.That's the first thing.

deranged, is there no lip on that drive flange to capture the cv if the bolts were to loosen up?

I used a similar rear spool design with the G&G spline shaft.  I twisted the first shaft and had to upgrade to a heat treated one.  Running a zx12.  Id check to see if HT was done, Rick doesnt say on his site.  Small price for the added durability. 

Upgrade looks great, looking like 10-12" added to length??


i remember when you twisted that shaft. not a little twist and i remember looking at that shaft and noticing it was the same shape and spline of an ag shaft i have seen many times on several pto's!  you were n/a then and i bet you rail weighs 1000 to 1100lbs.
