Was it a 23 or 21 spline shaft if it was a 21 spine I would upgrade to the 23 spline. This will require that you change the t-case input shaft.

If I recall right, it was the 23 spline. even the 21 spline should have never broken. the guy at Novak said he has been working there for 8 years and has never heard of one of these shaft breaking. So hopefully I will get a new one for free, but I still have to pay 200 dollars to get it put into the trans.

Jeep 2: 89/91 YJ, 4BT Cummins, NV4500, NP 231, Old Man Emu 2.5" suspension lift, 1" body lift.....Runs and drives, but very much a project
Interned at Novak Conversions 2 summers ago

Ask me about my 4BT Cummins Motor Mounts!!

I second that. So did mine, replacing the tranny this weekend.

IF it was the clutch, it would be stuck in gear

Glad you figured it out, but why pay 200 to fix it? Labor? Replacing the input shaft is a rather simple driveway job, you can do this yourself with basic hand tools in a couple of hours.
