Had a similar problem once with a '69 Mustang fastback a LONG time ago. Changed out the 3 speed stick for a 4 speed and failed to notice the overall length of the trans on the 4 speed was a few inches less than the 3 speed. Although the driveshaft looked like it fit, it actually was too short and the front spines were only seating on the output shaft a couple inches... which wasn't enough. It would vibrate terribly even in high gear but if I kicked the throttle it would go away completely. Point is... this could happen if there was a difference in overall length of the two transmissions AND if the driveshaft was not re-sized to fit correctly. Just a thought.

that makes sense but i dont think that is it my drive shaft goes in 3 or 4 inches and the transmissions are the same exact length this one really has me stumped.
