Universal joints for driveshaft 187D

Postby fosterdude » Wed May 18, 2022 2:25 pm

I need to get front and back universal joints for the driveshaft to operate my front differential. They are worn that they shear the pins.
Up here in Canada nobody has the right size. The shaft is 17mm They sell ones for 5/8ths 16mm
The front joint slips onto the differential input shaft and the driveshaft. Held with pins. The rear one is splined to the rear differential and pinned to the shaft. Who can help supply me with these and ship to Canada.

I guess I should be a bit more clear. The yokes are more what I need for the front of the shaft. The spline yoke is good, Ujoint on back is showing wear. The front yoke and ujoint are worn badly.
Was told may have to go to a machine shop and have them weld the shaft hole and redrill them out. I rather get new Yokes.

Sorry about that. Have you contacted Hoye about your need?

Not yet. Was talking to a retired machinist friend. He said it is easy for them to do. I may go that way. They drill it out more and weld in a sleeve and hone it out to the size needed. Sounds simple.

Well taken it to machine shops and they want over $500 Canadian to do it.
So still looking around up here for supplier. No one can get it for me.
I have talked to Hoye tractor. They too cannot get the yoke I need to replace it. Can get the spline part from the Transmission. But not the front Pinion with a pin to hold it on.
I will try posting again to see if anyone has one for parts that they may have that yoke for me.
