So I need to put a SYE on my DD Jeep and figured I needed one on the racer as well so looking around I found you can make your own version using a output shaft from a TH350. Can get the output shaft from a couple places online and it cost me $60. Part number is 3103-27CV. I got mine from Northern Drivetrain.

So cut a couple inches off the output shaft and the TH350 shaft. The TH350 shaft butts up against a shoulder on the shaft for a positive stop.

Drilled and tapped for a 7/16NF bolt.

So you can see the space inside with both yoke and shaft assembled.

I made this spacer to take up the space and the shoulder of the spacer rests against the yoke. Also turned in a countersink for the Nordlock and bolt to sit into. Probably didn't need to do that step but why not.

Backside, I cleaned it up and removed the burrs:

Still have to split the case on the DD and install the new shaft and will probably have to come up with some sort of seal as I think the 231 in the XJ has a goofy rear shaft housing. The 242 has a shorter rear housing and won't require any mucking about with sealing the bearing. I left about 1.5 of splines on the TC shaft and cut about 2.125/2.5" off the TH350 part.

can't see any pics but how is it different from the standard old hack and tap SYE?
