Just bought new warford to install in tt truck, the shaft on the warford is a sixteenth to big to fit in transmission, why is that? Is the transmission in a tt truck the same as t ? What do I do to correct the problem? As always thanks
Just guessing here but is it possible that someone replaced the TT U-joint with a standard T U-joint?
As far as I know, the U-joint and the engine is the same on the TT and the T.
For a TT you would usually use a cast iron Warford, and they use an extra U-joint housing between the T trans output and the Warford trans. Thus the Warford input shaft has the larger size that fits a standard U-joint in the rear, like a driveshaft, and larger than the front end of the U-joint.
Thinking the same thing. Can I just change back to a tt u- joint? Where can I get one? Thanks
Since you said it is a new warford, call the folks that made it. They should know what is required.
Thanks John, first thing Monday morning
Hey guys just asking, if the transmission is the same in a t or tt then why is the extra u- joint different? Looking for knowledge, thank you.
The T and TT's use the same U-joint.
Now, what style of Warford do you have?
A new repro KC made Warford or an old one of the cast iron or aluminum typ?
Here's an old cast iron Warford:
It uses a regular T U-joint both in front and rear.
Here's a KC made new Warford:
For info about fitting it, I'd say "call the manufacturer" as John wrote above
I have a new Warford in the 14 touring. There is no UJ between the engine and the Warford. There is a standard T UJ between the Warford and the rear axle.
I believe, but not certain, that the UJ on the TT axle and T are the same.
If you are installing a new made Warford it would not need the in between housing and U joint. ONLY the original cast iron used it. The original aluminum cased unit also bolted directly to the back of the transmission without the intermediate housing and u joint.
There is a difference between input shafts between the cast iron Warford and the aluminum cased Warfords that go into the square of the T transmission. The cast iron case input shaft square is smaller then the aluminum cased one.
I take and Anneal the shaft.TIG weld it the flats of the square input shaft. Then put it in our milling machine and machine it to same dimension as the aluminum cased input shaft. Then re heat treat and re install the cast iron input shaft back into the case.
Then I mount the cast iron cased Warford directly to the T transmission ( I don't use the Warford u joint). I also brace the rear of the Warford with my own cross member as. Done it on 3 T's with no problems and lots of miles.
