Help with Driveline Angles on my Hot Rod - Pictures inside...
Working on my rear suspension I realized the pinion on my rear-end housing is offset by 2.75". This throws my drive shaft angles out much further than I was hoping.
I plan to run a 3.5" aluminum drive shaft.
As photoed the engine and transmission are pointed down in the back at 3* (carburetor base level) and the pinion is pointed down 1*. With the tape measure stretched across the span it reads 8*.
Are these angles too high even with such a short drive shaft?
Should I bring up the engine and transmission (carburetor base off level)?
Am I going to need to source a equal distance rear-end?
Thanks for any help!
