T5 manual transmission

I have a T5 with a transmission yoke from a different transmission a 71 powerglide. The yoke seems to fit into the transmission but seem to only go in about 3 inches at most. My question Is does the t5 trans. have a shorter yoke?

RE: t5

Hi l've had a couple t5's and they where all 2 part driveshaft's, short driveshaft to hanger bearing to longer driveshaft to rearend, the short driveshaft is pretty much a fitted spline on the back of tranny, not tomuch in and out movement, so it only needs avery little, the movement is at the hanger bearing. l hope this makes sense? l'm in the middle of a brain fart it seems!!(TEC WORDS) TROY

I believe some of the T5's have a snap ring on the tail shaft that limits how far the yoke will slide in. You can pull the tail housing and remove the snap ring if you are using it in an application that uses a slip yoke and needs more travel.
