Hi guys, after some advice.

I need a tail shaft, Ford BTR auto to 8 1/2 diff.
So.
Do I buy an AU drive shaft and get it cut down.
Buy a mustang diff and cut it down, (I have the AU slip yoke)
Or just get a brand new one made up.
Engine is 302 EFI, stock...

Cheers

My aluminium one owed me $550 delivered from the states.
Might be a bit more now with the dollar lower.

I couldn't get one local for less than $850

The tailshaft out of the donor car was aluminium, 2 tailshaft places told me they are not allowed anymore?
The price locally with me giving them the slip yoke was $700.....

Not sure... I certainly haven't had any issues with mine, but inspectors don't look over the car much because it's all new.

Find one and have it cut and balanced - should be only $200 (It was a while ago).


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Agree with Boof. My last one cost me $250 here in Canberra and he supplied the tube. M&A Engineering 6241 4155

So, do I get a mustang one, or AU one and get it shortened?
$700 for a new one seems steep.

It won't really matter.
One will need a new yoke, the other will need a new rear uni setup.

I'd probably get a Mustang one then, but again no big deal. Any place can modify it as necessary.

Ok, sounds like a plan..
Now to, find a mustang tailshaft, or the Equivilant, I assume no wreckers will have a mustang one...
I Think XY is the same, what other fords will fit?

Anything with the same size universal joint will work.

The mustang yoke is the same spline and size as the BTR , i used the whole mustang tailshaft without modification. However my motor sits forward maybe 30- 50mm than std so yours may need shortening.
