rear end out put yoke???

I got the correct spline output yoke for the rear end. This is a chevy 8.5" rear. My question is i need the straps that hold the U joint in along with a U joint that has two of its ends bigger then the other two. Do they even make such a thing and if so where can i get these items from. I need new straps because my originals are too small.

Any parts store can sell you a strap kit. You need to know about what vehicle the rear is out off to get the correct one, but there is only about 4 for the 8.5, most being a Mechanics 3R. A cross u-joint is also a normal item but the normal parts store may have trouble looking it up unless you know the u-joints involved, like 3R to Spicer 1310 for example.

Here is a link to the Neapco Automotive Universal joint Catalog ... in PDF format.

You will need to haveAdobe Acrobat Reader (free) in order to view it.

"Conversion Joints" is what you are looking for, and you'll find them on page 350.

The retaining straps are on the 2 pages preceeding the conversion joints (348, 349)

HTH,
Don

Just a note ... if this is indeed the correct conversion joint ...
"3R" is also known as "S44" (Saginaw)

... so the part number that I think you would want would be 3-3130 for the greasable one or 3-3130BF for the permanently lubricated "Brute Force".

Looking at that chart ... there appears to be a typo.
3-3130 shows (4) 1.125" OD caps
3-3130BF shows (2) 1.063" and (2) 1.125"

Now the straps ... depending on which set of caps fits on the diff:
if 1.063" caps (1310 series) ... use p/n 1-0022
if 1.125" caps (3R or S44 seies) ... use p/n 1-0025

HTH,
Don

Thanks a bunch 66GMC Thats exactly what i needed. Believe it or not my combo was not listed so i called them and as it turns out i can swap the bearing caps to get the combo i need. My problem was the bearing dia to the length. They had the right dia but wrong lengths.
