Hey Keith, really no way of telling until you slip the yoke in, leaving about 3/4 inch of in/out movement then measure joint to joint. In the link below the measurement "C", with the yoke in position is what you need to know.

BTW I ran a club race today, I need more gear for the long track...

Thanks for the info I called elckers about the yoke the sake they didn't think that I would have to shorten the driveline. I ran a 62 rear gear for long and 64 for short. You want the rev limiter to hit about the stat finish line. Just play around within a tooth or two of those numbers
