Years ago, I swapped a non- OD T90 for an OD T-90 in my '63 8E5 (6 cylinder Champ). For years, I've fought an intermittant vibration at speed. Long story made short, I finally measured the length of the cut-down driveshaft, and found it is about an inch short.
So yesterday, a new (to me) driveshaft arrived. It's not what I expected, but it might work. It came from a'61 Champ with a T-85 OD. The shaft is shorter, but the slip yoke is longer, and it is the Type A style in the 7E 8E parts book, the only one I have. It looks like it might add up to be a little over an inch longer overall, subject to installation. I'm supposed to have a Type C shaft.
Since I have the yoke, will this work in my truck? Does it use the same U Joints as mine (mine are nearly new)
