Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Questions about Warford installation ans standard OEM crankshafts

In reviewing an old forum posted installation instructions when a new Warford was purchased from Texas T, it is suggested that a universal pin is not required on the shortened drive shaft, when using a modified rear end pinion bearing. Has anyone done this with success?
When installing the new Warford, without using an extra support for that Warford, has anyone had any OEM crank failures with this set up? This all assumes the shortened components were made and installed properly. Is a new Stipe crank suggested when using a Warford or is it really necessary?
Thanks

My OP and I think others might concur, the pin is even more important as there is now a steeper angle with the shorter shaft and is more important to keep the U-joint in its proper center.
While it is done without a support, you are now supporting the transmission with 4 3/8 bolts and it's input shaft. I don't think it would hurt to add a support to the back, even spring loaded.

John Regan recommends always using a U-joint pin, even with his modified pinion bearing.

And I'd be sure to add some support to the rear end of the Warford. Some say it's not necessary, but I always add that support when using any accessory tranny. It can't hurt, and it might save you some damage to your car.

Tom
I suggest you consider a “floating “ transmission shaft (available from Dan Hatch) (my invention)
