hay guys, im trying to mate a 32 pontiac 3 speed manual trans to a mid 70's GM 10 bolt.
on the back of the trans has a bolt on adapter plate.
one side is splined into the tail shaft to the transmission, and retained by a bolt and a cotter pin. (that extrudes past the surface of the flange)
the other side is a casting, which has an old style U joint within it. and the other side of the U joint has a 11 spline 1.5" female yoke.
my questions are,
was a 32 pontiac (im sure same as chevy) a open or closed driveshaft/torque tube?
ive been told many a times that ill probally have to make it, if so where can i get a splined shaft that will fit that yoke?
is there a better way to go about this? mabe a flange that someone makes that will accept a modern style u-joint?
and if ya tell me to use a better trans, ill tell you to provide the parts,
