PostSubject: Roto flex conversion with shaft   Fri Nov 18, 2011 9:23 pm

Soooo I am upgrading my rear drive shaft to a GBR and I have some spare diffs on the back porch with 4 bolt flanges.

Once I get this new shaft I will pull a flange from one of these diffs and make a conversion kit with shaft included. Great Basin Rovers sells this kit of $250, I will sell mine for $150 and if you live close I will help you install it (pending snow, rain or really cold weather). Hell if you're nice I might even throw in a pinion oil seal free of charge. I just finished putting a new UJ in the tcase end which was shot because it was made in china. It now has two Precision 344's (the best UJ on the market Very Happy). I even slapped a little black paint because I couldnt find the GBR green. The only catch is whoever wants it has to wait until I get my new shaft. which may take a couple weeks.

i think the D2 uses the Nut. does the D1 use the bolt?

see here for reference.

and is it a GBR Shaft or a stock shaft?

Stock shaft with precision 344 joints

I'm getting a gbr and selling my current set up.

Check the front pinion should match rear.

sounds good to me. Is the pinion flange you were talking about a "nut on" or "bolt on"?

Ok sounds good to me. I'll confirm tonight but im 95% sure i have a nut style pinion. Worst case scenario is i'll need to get a bolt when i put it on.

K - I dont know if I am going to be able to get the pinion nut lose on these diffs without them being attached to a truck... The one I just loosened on the front of my truck I had to use a jack and a breaker bar.... But we can sure as hell try - if anything I will just take the $45 or whatever Joel wants for those kits out of the price and you can just pick up the 4 bolt shaft with new UJ's

I got the GBR shaft. I am just waiting to get my truck back on Monday or Tuesday. Also I found that I have one of each type of pinion a nut and a bolt style on each of the spare diffs I have. Only problem is getting the nut or bolt off... I sent you my info, let me know when you wanna come get the stuff.
