I just got a new drive shaft for my rap and noticed that the ends do not have the 2mm bolt going through it but, my original drive shaft had both ends pinned using a nut and bolt.

Should i drill and put a nut in place or is it fine to use the way it is??

Thanks

Joe

O.K thank you for the info.

Why would TT make them different it's the same part #?

Do they like to take short cuts

You've got an early shaft, they didn't drill and bolt them until we started having the ends come off.

Joe,

You have a very old replacement shaft – TT has had the pin in then for over a year. Those old shafts had a lot of problems – if I were you I would return the shaft and demand a new one with pins!

The shafts are pretty easy to drill and pin, I wouldn't go through the hassle of sending yours back. I've had two failures of the old style drive shaft, both times causing a pretty expensive wreck.

Drive shaft
I just got one of these tail shafts that have the pin. How do I install the pins? Do you put them in opposite directions and do they need loctite?

When I pinned my driveshaft, I installed the bolts in opposite directions and used red loctite. I haven't noticed any vibrations after doing so.

Joe, I would see how bent the shaft is, before pinning. Many of the old ones were not usable.
