I'll measure the shaft I had in my XR it'll be the same(loader/9).
You normally measure from centre to centre of the unijoints.

Ok it measures 53.75" Uni-joint centre to centre.
Sounds like one of those 54 inch ones might do the trick? maybe?

Pete.

You mean a C4. There is no such thing as a C10 or a C9.
But yes I had a 'loader and then an AOD and than a C4...used the same shaft for all.

No wuckers Botch,

I'm the same I don't like em much(auto's) but I'm probably going to use a C4 behind the 391 because it costs too damn much for a strong manual gearbox.

Later,
Pete.

What's wrong with Toploader, or are you after 5 speed?
