Default Adapter plate for Ford Super 8.8" to pinion yoke driveshaft.

Thanks to everybody who responded to my last post. Our newest hurdle is finding a six and four hole adapter plate for the Ford 8.8" differential so that it will use a regular driveshaft. I did a search, but came up blank. I know Factory Five makes one, but they are out of stock. Does any other manufacturer make the adapter? I have the flange yoke but no way to connect the two. I plan on calling Superformance Monday, but I'm not sure if they have anything.

Thanks,
Dan

That whole approach is full of issues, short term and long-term. Consider changing out the pinion adapter to a yoke style. A Ford F350 99-200 yoke adapter fits it fine and gets rid of all the bolts and adapter plates.

Summit racing has them. Just search for "8.8 pinion yoke" and a few of them come up.

Be careful - 8.8 and Super 8.8 are two different types

I only needed the yoke on the driveshaft side. I read up on the difference after you mentioned it. I had no idea they changed the whole design. Good info!
