Swapping Turbo output shafts into dual Range?
Posted 14 October 2004 - 02:53 PM
Would it be possible to swap over the higher splined outputs from the turbo tranny to the dual range tranny? I would like to keep the stronger axles and I dont mind the time or effort.
Has anybody opened one of these units?

So from what I get. The turbo shafts have a larger diameter and two extra splines except for a auto turbo shaft that has the lower spline count but the same diameter.
Were you able to split the shafts apart to build a good one?
Maybe I'll throw in what I have and If I have problems, I'll get the automatic turbo shafts as the splines will match up but have a little bit better strength.
I'll still take a look at the tranny though. Maybe its not that bad to do. I was hoping you could split the case and just swap out the output.

I've done some serious towing with the D/R tranny in its original NA 86 wagon, and its seen near equal - dare i say its also seen harder driving as well in the turbo wagon i swapped it to.
Spline counts means "Stronger shafts"? Might be, but I have yet to see any realworld different in strengeht... now boot life is relative to the road/offroad hazzards and so you may be doing a warranty replacement of a halfshaft (like have done twice plus) sooooo.... its up to you.
BTW from my humble, yet simple bio and geocities site ...and even the galley of images i have on here.... you can see my GL-10 turbo wagon and her D/R setup..... BTW I have now had to substitute the XT6 FT4WD tranny for the D/R as grinding started to occur......
I have two D/R's and both have different internal problems... so I'm figuring on a rebuild from the two of all the best parts and wammo... ressurected D/R for the "Silver D/Ragon"
