TSC500 Automotive Universal joint replacement.
The TSC500 Auto is a 500ft.lbs. nominal torque replacement for universal joint in a driveshaft, and any automotive universal joint replacement. Replace any Spicer 1200-1310 or Spicer 5-3213X, SKF, Moog and Neapco universal joint coupling.
Flexible shaft couplings in the automotive industry have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, replacement of worn components, the automobile has evolved but the technology that makes up the universal joint has not. Twin Spring Coupling offers something different.
Traditional couplings have to be balanced and can only run at angles of 8 ° or less otherwise you get wear in the bearings within the propeller shaft of the universal joint.
The bearing will become loose and that creates vibration and with continual wear the ball bearings will fail.
The bearings need also to be constantly greased otherwise the ball bearings will not have any lubrication, and with them running at high speed the balls will seize in their tracks again leading to bearing failure.
Spicer’s series 1310 and above has to be re-lubricated every 5000-8000 miles of city driving or 3 months whatever comes first, for their light duty. That’s a lot of maintenance.
Ball bearings being very precise instruments also need to be contained to ensure infiltration by any foreign contaminants, as things like water, mud, dust or dirt will again cause the ball bearings to seize in their tracks and this means bearing failure.
The other downside to a universal joint are the yokes which the bearings are contained in, the coupling piece of the yokes are quite tough but the section that contains the bearings not so much as they have to hold the bearings.
this is a weak point as the bearings are usually less than 2″ across so the machining to contain the bearings is a lot smaller than the rest of the yoke, which means the likely of them cracking is that much higher.
Cracking leads to catastrophic failure and replacement of both the yoke and universal joint is assured. This makes it an expensive repair as with the price of the yoke and universal joint, it is usually cheaper just to replace everything, both yokes and the propeller joint.
TSC500 Auto is different.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Auto is different it replaces the entire U joint, yokes, propeller/cross bearings everything, with a simple one piece design. It can also replace any U joint off-road model as well.
Designed with no internal bearings, means our coupling is truly maintenance free, making it impervious to water, mud, dust, dirt and other contaminants. This saves time and on annual maintenance bills.
By being a one piece design also means Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Auto wont break like the yokes do in traditional uni joints.
Our TSC500 Auto coupling is available in all the standard industry splines for easy replacement or retrofit for OEM.
Time to replace the oldest part of the automobile.
