Re: Tailshaft- XR-XY C4 to 9" Diff???
Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated!
The old combo was C4 hooked up to XTGT/Mustang 8 3/4 diff (the one that looks like a 9", removable carrier, etc).
When I pulled the old diff out, I unbolted the u bolts on the diff that hold the tailshaft rear uni's on and went to slide the shaft forward (back further into the gearbox), to drop the shaft down and remove it.
It wouldn't slide forward at all, ther was absoulutley no movement or 'give' in it between the box and the diff. To drop the shaft, I had to take the caps off the rear uni and then it was able to be removed.
Now with the 9" bolted up, it won't fit between the box and the diff- it looks like it needs to be shortened at least 1", maybe 2" to get it to be able to slide up to the diff yoke.
I thought it would bolt up too, so i'm a bit dissapointed! Got a quote for a custom tailshaft- new unis, heavy wall 3" tube etc, $495- seems like a lot of cash that I don't have available to spend right now!!
Any further ideas?? its got me beat!!
