Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, daily! Whether you have an automotive shaft that needs to be Ford at one end and Toyota at the other or are in need of several industrial shafts for a one-of-a-kind machine, we build shafts to fit your specifications. We can make shafts in all lengths, using all different series (1310, 1330, etc.). We also make both steel and aluminum custom drivelines.
Exact measurements are absolutely necessary for the proper manufacturing of a driveline. If the measurements are not accurate, drive shafts can break and accidents can occur. Because of the large variety of shafts that exist and the endless tasks these drivelines are used for, we ask that you call and speak to one of our trained staff. Once we have determined the type and use of your driveline, we will personally walk you through the measurement process.
Our website will soon feature step-by-step instructions for measuring the most popular types of drivelines, but we will always continue to offer personal assistance to any customer in need of measurement help.
Yes! We use a machine that mounts and spins the driveshaft exactly as it goes in the vehicle. This gives us the abillity to balance a shaft at speeds of up to 3300 RPM's.
Yes! Using Remco drive shaft coupling (DSC) or lube pump (LP) products, we enable RV’ers to tow vehicles behind motor homes with all four wheels on the ground. This saves on wear and tear on your car without disconnecting the transmission or accumulating miles on the odometer. Remco towing products adapt to approximately 80% of the vehicles in the market today, so whether you have a front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive vehicle, we can install a unit to make towing it easy. For more information, contact us via web or phone.
A one-piece steel shaft can't be longer than 72" from the center of the u-joint at one end to the center of the u-joint at the other end. If you have need for a driveline to be longer than 72", it can be converted to a 2-piece driveshaft or built using aluminum tubing.
Yes! We sell both Spicer and Neapco non-greasable u-joints. Most popular is Neapco's Performance Dynamics u-joints. These non-greasable u-joints are made especially for aluminum driveshafts. Their oxidized caps don't rust and help the u-joints fit tighter in the yoke.
We produce high-quality steel and aluminum racing shafts and will paint or finish-out by request.
Torque is also called moment or moment of force. It describes the rotational force down a shaft and measures how strong the shaft needs to be and how much pressure will be exerted. An accurate estimation of how much torque a machine has is necessary to ensure the proper production of a shaft.
CV stands for constant veloicty. Commonly found in 4x4 vehicles, these shafts handle more angle than two joint shafts and reduce vibration.
A drive shaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft, or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them. Drive shafts are found in automobiles, heavy duty trucks, agricultural equipment and industrial machines.
