1935-1948 Ford Open Driveline Conversion Kit (6-spline)

(0 customer reviews)



Convert your 1935-1948 Ford hot rod’s banjo rear axle from torque tube (closed) drive to open drive with our easy-install, bolt-on conversion kit. This modern driveline kit is compatible with a standard #1350 U-joint (NAPA #331, not included) and is 100% made in the USA. Every component is precision-machined to correctly fit a standard 6-spline pinion.

Our conversion kit includes:

– Open drive pinion housing
– Open drive yoke
– Pinion seal
– Housing gasket
– ¼’’ coupler pin
– U-bolt kit
– (2) 5/16-18 set screws
– (6) ⅜ – 24×1’’ bolts
– (6) ⅜ lock washers
– Housing vent
Installation instructions

Please note:

The banjo rear end should be vented when installing an open drive kit on your classic Ford. A vent is included in the kit.

When the torque tube housing is removed, a new rear axle location set up is necessary. Use our Radius Rod Mounting Kit (p/n 1151 and p/n 1153) on 1935-1940 applications. Other applications will require custom radius rods or ladder bars to properly locate the rear axle.

Why convert to open drive?

Converting to an open driveshaft is necessary if you want to run a newer transmission in your hot rod. With our conversion kit, you’ll be able to upgrade your vehicle while maintaining the banjo rear end and its classic, traditional look.
