Check the splines in the yoke. You will notice that you have a gap. That gap lines up with an extra wide slpine on the transmission output shaft. Once you have them lined up it will slide right in. Then if you need to turn the driveshaft to get the rear universal to line up with the rear yoke, simply put the trans in neutral and you can turn the driveshaft. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 Chevy Suburban 1500 Z71 How do you remove the front driveshaft from the transfer case

1) Be certain the transmission is in neutral.
2) Be certain to mark where the driveshaft is on the yoke flange so it can be put back in the same location.
3) Cut the clamp on the dust boot and pull the boot back
4) Be sure again to mark where the drive shaft is to get it back in the exact location.
5) Remove the 4 bolts (11mm) on the driveshaft on the yoke end.
6) Pry back the shaft back from the yoke
7) Pull the shaft out of the transfer case.

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal

How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  • Removing the Transfer Case
    • 6 Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
    • 7 Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
    • 8 Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
    • 9 Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
    • 10 Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle

    Will a chevy s-10 motor work in a 85 mitsubishi mighty max

    Not without using the chevy transmission (and transfer case if it's a 4WD Mighty Max), Custom Motor Mounts, Custom Transmission Mount, Wiring Modifications, Driveshaft Modifications (either lengthened or shortened, depending on where the transmission or transfer case is located). Possibly shifter hole modifications (if it's a 5-Speed Manual), or Custom Linkage/Linkage Modifications (If it's an Automatic)

    Oil leaking between gearbox and driveshaft

    sounds like transmission rear seal. Any good shop can replace fairly inexpensively. Unless you have tools, just undo driveshaft at rear-end, yoke slides out of transmission. With a seal puller, pops out, tap in new one with mallard and reinstall driveshaft.

    I am blowing trany fluid from the back of the transmission but its not the seal where the driveshaft goes in and to make the truck shift i have to let off the gas and it will shift

    Have a similar shifting issue with my 1996 Chevy truck though it was not blowing fluid. It ended up being the main spring inside had broken.
    Solution for me was a new transmission for $2800.00

    Is a 1986 chevy 400 transmission tale shaft the same as a 1986 chevy 700 transmission

    If you mean length, not necessarily. You'll have to measure from where the tail shaft bolts to the main transmission case. If you mean the T400 driveshaft sliding into the 700R4, then it shouldn't be a problem. Hope this helps.

    I have a 1990 chevy K1500 4X4 with a NV3500 5 speed manual. I want to use it in a 2 wheel drive truck. Can this be done and what modifications do i need to make to it?

    You'll need to find a tail piece for the transmission, a 2WD driveshaft and probably a trans mount crossmember. The driveshaft needs to come out of a truck that had that transmission installed in it to be the right length.
    You should be able to find all this in a scrap yard or auto salvage yard for a decent price ($200 range) unless it is a fiberglass driveshaft. To have a driveshaft built custom for your truck will probably cost around $350. Hope this helps.

    How do I replace the flywheel in a 1995 chevy truck

    The best way is to take it loose from the torque converter, loosen transmission mounts, take out yolk on the driveshaft, pull the drive shaft, slide tranny back then you will be able to see how to finish.
