toy housings and zuk drivelines

Ive had alot of people through the years ask me how I get away with runnin toy axles and still use zuk drivelines with out adapters.

Lifted zuki's brother is going through this right now.He was asking me how this works.Was hoping I could make some for him,since he asked somone else to build him some but they screwd it up apparantly.I decided i would stop building my zuk and make him some so he can get his zuk goin.

I chucked up a piece of 2" dom I had laying around.(I would prefer to make these out of s.s. but I dont have any)

I turned the I.d. to fit the zuk flange index.

Then turned the o.d. down to fit inside the toy flange index.You end up with a thin lil ring,just under 1mm thick.

Piece machined to size,getting ready to part it off.

So you just put this ring in the toy flange.

it fits the zuk index nicely


shes thin but it works


So now the zuk flange has no choice but to self center on the toy flange.Put them together clock the zuk flange 20* or whatever and redrill the holes in the toy flange and walla you got a zuk driveline bolted up to a toy axle with no noticeable adapters=longer driveline and less $$ spent= exceallant

very nice.

Now just get some IFS Yota shafts, mill them a bit - and they'll bolt on too

Ya that too.This is an easy and cheap mod.You would just either shorten the stock zuk shaft a bit or put some fore thought into and move the rear axle back enough to where the stock shaft would just slide right in.

Honestly see no reason to go to toy d.l. the zuk u joints(the oe jap units) are very strong.

Just thought I would trow this up,just incase someone is the middle of this swap...another option..on the cheap.

Obviously working on his is fine.. and you are correct 2" isnt cheap.. that is a stick of it isnt.. but what.. an inch.. at most maybe for 1? heck, you make 10 of those little rings and sell em for what, $10-$15 a piece, you just paid for a whole sitck of tubing, minus the foot you just used. Just saying..... good tech Rockmike, good luck on the build

Thanks guys!

I could but im not a site vendor,I dont want to piss off the head sheep herders.

Odviouslly im not solisiting these,just thought it would be helpfull to post up a thread and some pics of what I did ,how,why.

Its kinda funny,my lathe is perfect for building these.Reason: its ways have a slight twist(its a pos) but it was cheap!!

So when you turn the i.d. it automaticlly puts a very slight taper on it the hole gets tighter as I go toward the chuck,when you turn the o.d. the part gets a slight taper tighter as you go toward the chuck.So when you pull the part out of the chuck flip it and install in the toy flange the od is tappered toward the toy flange makes it fit easy and the taper would be the other way when you got to install the zuk flange as you push the zuk flange into the toy flange it gets tighter and self alligns it.

I suppose we could go to pm mode.I could be influenced to make a few for some zk buds.

I wonder what Myrons opinion would be on this lil gadget Ive come up with,I would amagine he could make them sell through his oustanding company.
