5288 driveshaft


Recommended Posts

You can use the Magnum U-joint shaft, flanges and yokes. The shaft will need shortened some and the cover will not fit. Probably not any cheaper even with salvage yard parts but will not strip out again. They wear out because the front trunnion bushings get loose and the front axle no longer lines up with the shaft and wears out the splines.

I should have a shaft from a burned 7140 we bought unless it was sold already. I'll make sure I save it for a MFD 5x88 if we would get one in the future ....

That helps a lot.   It just splines on the rear and floats there.   That’s what I did not understand.  

Yes and you have to take a u joint apart to get the driveshaft off.
