You can buy them new. A new complete tailshaft to suits around $350. I just had one built but the front needed to suit a powerglide. It's definately strong enough.

[edit] Forgot to mention the shaft builders company name "Truckline"

Re: bigger yokes

No particular one. They all should know what they are up to. They make truck tailshafts after all

According to my other paperwork if you have a C4 and a 9" in a sedan or coupe? Your tailshaft should measure 1415mm seal to centre

Thats a good price, what are the details of the shaft? 3" or 3.5", did they supply the uni's?

Can you PM me the number if its on hand.

Thanks mate

Re: bigger yokes

Yep, TRUCKLINE do a great job.........although I got mine done at Truckline in Perth.

Mine was also $350 fully fitted including front and rear uni's......DRIVE in DRIVE out A big ass 3.5" for some heavy duty punishment.

Ask for the SEALED uni's. They have no grease nipple and the bearings are sealed. Stronger due to no hollow centre cavity for grease and they're maintenance free.

You can go large 1350 size uni's, BUT, this all depends on the size of the yokes on both your gearbox and diff pinion. ie: there are certain uni sizes that can "step down" to your smaller yokes.

Re: bigger yokes

No need for a 3.5" tube. I know of plenty of cars running loads of power through a 3" thick wall tube inc myself. Myself and the owner of Hallam Performance run the same tailshaft. He launches @ 5500rpm through a transbrake and doesn't hurt it

I've launched mine of the transbrake quite a few times now. I'm more than content it'll hold up without issues. 3.5" tube just makes the yokes more expensive.
