i thought about replacing that u-joint with a plate, drilled out to the bolt pattern, and then welding the driveshaft ears on it. but if i do that, then there is 0 ammount of slippage between the rearend and tranny.. and in my experience, thats askin for trouble!

i think mabe the best way is to take this adapter off and use it like a regular trans, but i havnt taken that adapter off, i will tonight to see whats goin on.

my plan is of now to use the old adapter, and trying to find a splind shaft and
welding it to a normal driveshaft tube . so the front is a fixed shaft and the rear has the ears for the U-joint.

dont really like that plan, but whatever gets me around Paso Robles 06!!!
