That is interesting. On our U1300L, the shaft between the clutch and the transmission is actually pretty long. I bet something like that would fit.
This is my reservation with the Joey Box... which is why I plan to do everything between the main box and the transfer case. I can then carry the original link shaft with me, and then when the Joey explodes I just put the original shaft back in! I'm not really interested in the low gear option as our trucks are not rock crawlers, and am only really interested in the overdrive option for long journeys.. When off the freeway the box would be in 'direct drive' gear, and in theory this is a straight thru dog coupling so should take the same load as the shaft the joey box replaces. I have access to one locally so might just grab it and pull it apart for the sake of learning and this thread!What torque can these things handle. If its between the gearbox and transfer box its going to get some serious torque in the lower gears. I think its best place is between transfer and rear axle. Obviously its only good for 2 wheel drive and ideally would be best in the higher gears eith less torque
if you get a Spicer unit, I think you can find specs for their various models.What torque can these things handle. If its between the gearbox and transfer box its going to get some serious torque in the lower gears.
The box I have access too measures 500mm from front to back. It it was placed between the engine and gearbox, it would only ever have to contend with the torque of the engine.... but you are then asking the gearbox to cope with multiplied torque if the Joey is used in the low range. Perhaps in this application you'd only use it for it's for it's 'overdrive' benefits.I was wondering if there would actually be room on a Mog behind the engine if it was connected with a tiny driveshaft each side, so four shaft joints to allow for flexing? Have you had a measure up to know if there might be room at least?
