Quick Answer

You Asked What is the difference between a 1310 and 1350 U joint?

Size and strength. The 1310 series joint is what you would expect to find stock in most Jeep or small trucks. A 1350 series joint/shaft is what you might find in many full size trucks. While it’s not 100% accurate, you could say that a 1310 is a “half ton” joint and a 1350 is a “one ton joint”.

What is the difference between a 1350 and 1410 U joint?

1350 joints are found in 1-ton trucks and use the wider body of the 1330 joint but with larger trunnions and caps. 1410 joints use a wider body but the same-size caps as a 1350 joint, making them perfect for high-horsepower, high-angle applications.

What is a CV style driveshaft?

Constant-velocity joints (also known as homokinetic or CV joints) allow a drive shaft to transmit power through a variable angle, at constant rotational speed, without an appreciable increase in friction or play. They are mainly used in front wheel drive vehicles.

How much torque can a 1350 U-Joint handle?

The 1350 U-joint is rated for 2,200 lb-ft (minimum elastic limit) of torque.

What is the strongest U 1310 joint?

1310 Series Spicer MAINTENANCE FREE Universal Joint

Use this u-joint when you want the most strength out of a 1310 series universal joint. Stronger than a greaseable u-joint.

What is a 1350 u-joint?

Non-cross-drilled Heavy Duty 1350 U Joint

The Thrust washers in each bearing cap is to eliminate metal on metal contact preventing wear and lower overall operating temperature. It is non-greaseable design that is factory lubed with synthetic grease for excellent friction reduction.

What series is a 369 u-joint?

Fitment U-Joint moog-369 fits these vehicles: AMC Ambassador 1967 thru 1974. AMC American 1968 thru 1968. AMC AMX 1968 thru 1980.

What is the advantage of a double cardan joint?

The real benefit to a C. V. (double cardan) drive shaft is smoother operation at higher operating angles and longer life. The C.V. assembly works by intersecting the joint angles at the center pivot point and delivering a smooth rotational power flow or surface velocity through the drive line.

What is the difference between AU joint and a CV joint?

While a CV joint and U-joint are roughly the same at 0 degrees, the CV joint is able to maintain velocity through a larger range of angles. It’s also able to handle a greater torque load. This makes the CV joint stronger and less susceptible to issues like vibration and friction. This means that CV joints break less.

Should CV axles be replaced in pairs?

On a high-mileage vehicle with a bad CV joint or boot, it’s often a good idea to replace both shafts at the same time. Often, the right (passenger side) shaft fails first because right turns are at a sharper angle than left turns, and right turns are more common than left turns.

How do you know if you have a Sye?

Yours is a fixed yoke and shorter so theres your SYE aka slip yoke eliminator. The CV style drive shaft you can tell it is one by how it has the to joints right at the fixed yoke on the t-case and it also has that slip joint (where the blue is).

Are U-joints all the same size?

This allows you to mate a larger (or smaller) U-joint to the other. For example, you buy a new driveshaft that comes with 1350 weld-in yokes, but your car has 1310-sized yokes for the transmission and rear differential.U-Joint Sizes.

How much drive shaft angle is too much?

Ideally, both driveshaft-operating angles will be 1 to 3 degrees. Anything over 3 degrees at the rear axle will shorten your universal joint’s life and could create vibration. If your angle is larger than 3 degrees, you must make sure not to exceed max driveshaft RPM as shown on this Spicer table.

How are U-joints measured?

You will need to measure from the edge of one snap ring groove straight across to the edge of the other snap ring groove. For U-joints with outside snap rings, you will need to measure from the edge of one u-joint cap straight across to the edge of the other u-joint cap.

What is double cardan joint?

A Double Cardan joint is essentially two single Cardan joints connected by a coupling yoke that contains a centreing mechanism. This centering mechanism keeps the input and output shafts in the same plane, regardless of the operating angle.

How much torque can 1310 U-Joint handle?

According to Spicer, the 1310 joint is rated at 400 lb-ft of continuous torque (down the track) and 800 lb-ft of short-term torque (launch at the line). The 1330 has the same size caps as the 1310, but the U-joint cross is the same size as a 1350.

Are all 1350 U-joints the same?

Standard u-joints sizes are classified by series, with each series having specific cap diameter and overall joint width. Typically speaking, a higher series number translates to a stronger joint.Understanding U-Joints.

What happens when u-joint fails?

A bad u-joint can cause a clunking sound or jerkiness while driving, particularly when letting off of and pressing the accelerator. A bad u-joint can also cause vibration at certain speeds, emanating from the center or rear of the vehicle.

What does a 534g U joint fit?

Is Moog better than Spicer?

Frankly, there’s a very simple answer: If you drive a Jeep, I recommend you to go for Spicer joints. This specific U joint is the absolute best replacement part you can get for virtually all Jeep models. For most other vehicles – and especially light trucks or commuter cars, MOOG are an affordable and optimal solution.

Does drive shaft affect steering?

When you have a worn-out driveshaft, it may cause vibrations to come from underneath the vehicle which can be felt through the steering wheel or floor board. These vibrations coupled with another symptom should be a clear sign that your shaft needs to be replaced.

Does a driveshaft have to be straight?

Not really, it depends on what type of driveshaft you have, Some driveshafts can be slanted a lot more than others depending how long the spline and slip is, some are 6” and some extreme off road vehicles and vehicles that have hydraulics have slip shafts that are 3 ft long.

What is the best driveline angle?

Most driveline companies recommend operating angles of 3° or less for maximum u-joint life. There should be a minimum of ½° to allow the needles to rotate. The higher the operating angle, the more likely your vehicle will develop a vibration at high driveshaft speeds.
