View Full Version : Yoke flange question

05-26-2006, 08:11 AM
I think this question has been asked once before but I couldn't find it so here goes. My son and I were removing the outer shaft assembly from both sides of my 73 TR6. The problem is he forgot to scatch both sides of the flanges so that we would know how to put it back together. The question is is there anyway to tell when you have the yoke flange and the driving flange properly orientated? Thanks

I'd be very surprised if it really mattered. Besides, it can only go in two positions. Orientation of yokes is important on splined shafts, where they should "run in the same plane"; otherwise, not to worry.

I don't know if it's the same on the TR6 axle shafts, but TR drive shafts usually have a couple small arrows engraved on the yoke and shaft that need to be aligned. Might help.
