Torque is really good at doing two things: getting your car moving, and finding parts to break in your driveline. Transmission yokes are the unsung heroes of a driveline, they take a beating each time you leave the starting line as they transfer power to the tires. Strange Engineering’s new two-piece Turbo 400 transmission yokes are built to deal with just about anything you throw at them.
The rotational force that’s exerted on a transmission yoke is massive and it is transferred to everything that the yoke touches. Strange kept that in mind when it was designing its new TH400 yoke, so it used billet caps along with EDT 150 studs to make sure the u-joint caps don’t distort and fail. If your transmission uses a roller bearing in the tail housing, Strange sized these yokes appropriately and used a special hardening treatment to ensure the yoke’s durability.
U-joints have a funny way of ruining your weekend when they decide to fail. Strange saw an opportunity to address this issue with this two-piece TH400 transmission yoke. The yoke provides consistent clamping force around the entire bearing cap of the u-joint — this increases the life of the joint since it lowers its operating temperature. This yoke also prevents over-torquing of its 12-point distorted thread locking nuts to make sure there’s no bearing journal brinelling and damage to the needle roller of the u-joint itself. The caps themselves are totally removable, which makes taking the driveshaft out easier, thus cutting down on the time it takes to complete driveline maintenance.
