Universal Joint ID

Good Morning! well I finally got around to swapping that old 411 gear out of the coupe for a more livable 370 unit, and find i need another u joint to complete the job. can anyone lead me to a chart on the web listing u joint sizes and dimensions? i know there are 1310 and 1330 and 1350 series, but need dimensions. also there is one out there that is one size on one axis, and another size on the other axis. Anyone remember better than me?

What is the difference between 1310, 1330 and 1350 Series?

The "series" of a driveshaft or universal joint is determined by the actual dimensions of the u-joint. While the front and rear u-joint can be of two different sizes the shaft is only as strong as the smaller one. The 1310 series u-joint measures approximately 3 1/4 inches wide. The 1330 and 1350 both measure approximately 3 5/8 wide. The 1310 and 1330 series can have cap diameters of 1 1/16 and/or 1 1/8 inch or a combination of both sizes. The 1350 series has a cap diameter of 1 3/16 inch and the body and journals are bigger than the 1310 or 1330. Remember 1350 is almost never found in production car driveshafts.
This is the information I have been going with for years;

1310 Series 3 3/32" W 1 1/16" CAP DIA
1330 Series 3 5/8" W 1 1/16" CAP DIA
1350 Series 3 5/8" W 1 3/16" CAP DIA

There is a changeover (hybrid) U-JOINT that was popular on FORD conversions;

1310/1330 Series Cross (4) 1 1/16" OD and (2) 1 1/8" OD caps.

FRP M-4635-A

This hybrid is also available aftermarket.
