Several people are working on putting together original driveshaft information for 67-69 Camaros. Items of most interest at this point are below.

If you have an original driveshaft and would be willing to post information about your car, it would be very much appreciated. Here is what to include...

Year of car
Norwood or Los Angeles car
Month and week of vehicle assembly
Engine
Transmission
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint)
Type of attachment to pinion yoke. There are two types: U bolts and the strap and bolts method.
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube.
Paint stripes and a picture (if possible)
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end. Some cars were "in-line" and others were "clocked" about 30 degrees off from each other

Post in this thread if you want. If you would rather not post, but still contribute, send an email to me please. Thanks.

*** Modified 3/18/2014 to remove casting number.  Most don't have it and it is a forging number on the yoke.  ***

You might find these helpful if you havenn't seen them already.

The original driveshaft in my my 69 RS, which I have owned since Nov 1991, 01C build date, had the driveshaft yokes offset one from another when I purchased the car.  In July 1992 I had the driveshaft modified so as to put the yokes in phase.  The original engine was not in my car when I acquired it in Nov 1991, but it was most likely a 307.  The car has the original 2 speed Powerglide automatic and the original 2.73:1 open rear end.  Pinion yoke, as I recall, is attached with straps.

I also have a spare driveshaft that I personally removed from a 69 Camaro that was being parted out in March 1994.  This car was a base coupe with a 327, built around the 3rd week of November 68 (VIN# 124379N551248, engine code V1122FJ).   Note:  This engine now resides in my car.  Not the original, but at least I do have a '69 Camaro engine in my ride.  This parts car had a 3 speed manual, not sure about the rear end - undoubtedly a 10 bolt open but ratio is unknown.  Yokes on the driveshaft are offset as well.

Rich,

Thanks for those links.  I had read most of them previously.  The offset question is probably not one that can be easily answered, but I thought I would ask people who had originals to try to figure this out. 

Maybe I should just take this one step at a time, but I figured if people were going to take the time to look at what they had it might be easiest to just get all the iinformation at once.

So for now...what I think I have figured out is the following for lengths.  This is from AMA specs and some other Chevrolet sources. For 67 and 68 cars with the 396, different frame mounts for the engine were used which pulled the engine forward about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.  Also note the holes for the 396 crossmember for use with a manual transmission had the transmission mounting holes about 3/4 inch forward.  The PG, TH350, 3 speed manual and 4 speed manual transmissions are all close to 27 5/8 or 27 3/4 inches long (including bellhousing length).  But the TH400 is slightly longer - around 28 1/4 inches.

67 and 68 Camaros used two different lengths.  49.96 inches for all applications except the 396 with manual trans which was 50.46 inches.

69 Camaros all used the same length, 49.56 inches.  This appears to be due to the frame mounts all being the same for the big blocks and small blocks.  Although I can't find anything listed, it seems the TH400 driveshaft should be slightly shorter.

So that is why I am looking for actual measurements, to confirm these numbers.  If anyone has different information, please post it and list your source.

Is ANYBODY out there willing to measure your original driveshaft and provide that information? 

Especially interested in Big Block cars...manual trans or TH400.  Thanks.

  You have perfect timing, that's right where I'm at with my restoration.  My car is a '67 V8 Coupe, 11 A, Los Angeles built.  Has the standard 327 - 2 bbl. engine with Powerglide trans.. The Driveshaft length is 50 in..  I have not found the Casting #( I assume it's on the end flange)(I haven't got that far cleaning)  The Rear end tube Code reads: PW 0919 G.  The paint stripes are Orange/White(I've included a pic.)  And the U-joint flanges are Clocked.  Let me know if you really need that Casting#..

Should have mentioned that the lime green type color paint was on both sides of the yoke. In the center of the drive shaft there must have been some type of sticker/tape as the lines around the entire shaft (where it was) are very defined and very virgn material. Something was there but what I have no idea....

MyRed67 - sorry I could not find your name isted - thanks for that information.  It goes along with what the length is supposed to be for 1967 Camaros with 6 cylinder and small block V8 - 49.96 inches.  The information on the u bolts helps too.  At this point, just started a database on the stripe colors.  If you could, list the color of the stripes in order from front to back.  I can't tell from the picture if the orange or white is toward the front.  If you find the casting number, please post that too.  Thanks.

   I am attaching a pic. of the front Driveshaft Yoke straight on.  If you can decipher the part # you're better than me.  This is actually a pretty good pic., #'s are just real hard to decipher.  I'm guessing, but are the last 3 #'s on bottom row part of date code?  I don't know how they coded these yokes, but my Steering Gear Box was day 276.  Don't suppose this helps much, but it's the best I can do.

Yes, the drive shaft is off our 68 Z/28 and the length is 52 1/2". I found the part # on the yoke but its very difficult to read other than a couple numbers.

Actually this is a 1969 drive shaft is from a 69.

I doubt there's any date info there - the yoke is a forging, not a casting, and the Chevy bowtie emblem indicates that it was made at the Chevrolet-Detroit Forge Plant; the number next to the bowtie symbol relates to the forging die set used to produce the yoke, not a date. Forgings weren't dated, but they carried the forging number for the part.

Has there been any definitive conclusion on the drive shaft strip color coding for the 1st Gen drive shafts, specifically the '69 Z28?

The Muncie Transmission input shafts were different between the M20 versus the M21/M22 with the number of spine teeth.  But were the output shaft splines the same on all three Muncies?  If the output splines were different, did the draft shaft strip color codes reflect this?

Based on the related links, it appears that the orange/white stripe combination has been found on 1st Gens.


Thanks!

Thanks William! Bryon, the info I supplied was from what I believe to be a 69 Camaro auto. trans and not my 68 Z/28. What a mistake but I had the wrong drive shaft! The yoke on the one I reported on is larger and will not even fit in our M21. After William's comment I thought I better double check and yikes, screwed up on this one. Will report on the 68 Z shaft after I complete the intitial cleaning.  Can tell you the yokes are offset and the length is approximately 50 1/2" in length.

Chick, can you double check that measurement?  I need the measurement from the center of one u joint to the center of the other.  I believe it should be 49.96 inches for a 68 Z28.  Thanks.

Based on Corvette specs, all Muncies through 1970 had 10-spline input shafts and 27-spline output shafts; that changed to 26/32 in 1971.

Dave we are still working on figuring out the driveshaft paint stripes.  There were differerences, but so far we have not found anything written down.  So we are looking at examples at this point.  

As John says, all output splines on 67-69 Muncies were the same.  The large 32 spline output shaft did not start until sometime in the 1970 model year and used the 3978764 tailhousing.

I could be wrong but I think those are the AMA specs for use with the 396 engine with manual transmission.  I show 49.96 for all L6 and small block engines.  

Kurt S., Ed B. and I have gone through all of the parts books and AMA specs and have come up with a list of numbers.  I don't think we are quite ready to put those out there just yet.

The point of this thread is to find the lengths of ORIGINAL driveshafts to confirm what we have found so far.  

If anyone has an ORIGINAL driveshaft and would be willing to share information it will be greatly appreciated.

Original 1968 Z28, Norwood, 07C, 50 inches (or darn close), staggered yoke alignment, orange and white stripes (13 inches from centerline of yoke to center between the two stripes), attachment looks like u-bolts that are flattened where they go around the u-joint.

Thanks for that information Jerry.  I believe the 50 inches (49.96) and u-bolts are correct.

Thanks for all of that information Boston14.  Exact length from 1969 AMA information says 49.56 inches.  So yours appears correct.  Thanks again.

Took it out of my cleaner set up and it seemed to eye ball just under 50". Yoke ends have the staggered offset, U bolts, and beginning of orange/white stripe is just over 5" from centerline of yoke. Yoke had both orange and yellow paint on it. Plenty of orange paint on that yoke. When I flip it I will report any new findings. Some pictures:

The most important question to be answered in any of this discussion (at least for 1969 IMO) is why the vast majority of driveshafts had offset u-joints and yet some of the more powerful engine / transmission options had the u-joints in phase.

From a pureley mechanical engineering perspective, in phase u-joints are correct.  

In phase u-joints will theoretically maintain the same anglular relationship with respect to the horizontal at both ends of the driveshaft.  If everything else works as designed, maintaining this constant angualr relationship will negate the constantaly changing angular velocity at one end of the driveshafti vs. the opposite end.  

Out of phase u-joints, by definition, will not maintaitn the same angular relationship at both ends of the driveshaft......why GM / Chevy did this is one of the great mysteries of life.

Rich I appreciate your input - but that is not why I started this thread.  

That question has been tossed around for years and years.  As for WHY?, I don't think we will ever find an answer to that question.

Found two white paint marks when the other end of the driveshaft was soaked. The dimension (tape measure in pic) was from the centerline of the rear universal.


Both welded on Yokes are part # 3790024 and both seem to have a "318-2" beside the castings chevrolet embossed emblem. Notice the orange paint also.

OK, I need to clarfiy something. The number that are on the yokes are not casting numbers, those are forging numbers.  From what I have been able to find out so far, they are not Camaro specific, so they may not be of much use in this research.

But thanks for all of the information so far.  Any PLEASE keep posting!  Especially any 67 or 68 big block cars.

Ok Bryon. I finally got a chance to get under the car so here you go:

Year of car - 1968
Norwood or Los Angeles car - Los Angeles
Month and week of vehicle assembly - 05D
Engine - Believed to be an L89 but original block MIA
Transmission - M21 (Not original)
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint) - 49.75" (plus or minus)
Driveshaft casting number - Unknown
Type of attachment to pinion yoke - U bolts
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube - BS0506G2 (3.31 Posi) and D168 casting date
Paint stripes and a picture (if possible) - White ?? and Orange?? (see picture)
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end - 30 degrees

My axle isn't original to the car but is correctly dated to the 05D build. Also note that there's some kind of writing in yellow (see 2nd picture below). I can't make out anything but an "M" so I have no idea if it's original or not, or what it says.

Thanks Paul.

I looked at one yesterday.  49.5 inches center of u joint to center of u joint.
The owner was about 90 percent sure that it was from a 1969 Camaro TH400
car that he junked out after it was wrecked about 30 years ago.
It had what appeared to be an original TH400 yoke on it.  The u joints were in line.  
I could not find any stripes on it.

Ok, got my drive shaft out and can report some preliminaries.
Yokes are in-line.
Centers are 49.95"
Bolted straps on diff yoke.
But....seemingly not original as the u-joints are pinned, not 'C' clipped or snap ringed??
But....pins are OEM only?, replacement uni's  are furnished with 'C' clips? If so, then where the heck did this shaft come from??

Wow, yours is pin injected as well !!! Are the pins orange in color?
Maybe mine is original after all and still with the factory u-joints.
I haven't noticed any stripes on mine as yet either, but I do have to clean off a thin layer of flat black which I had sprayed over the front half of the shaft many years ago.

Bob, do you know if that shaft was from a TH400 BB car?

Thanks Rob and Bob.  Yes, it appears that a length of 49.96 inches is correct for 67 and 68 big block cars with TH400.

I can not say for sure, but the u joints you have are probably original.

Thanks Charley.  Those stripes are very interesting. 
Do you know of any original 67 or 68 cars with a big block and a manual transmission that we can check the driveshafts on? I believe they are not they same length as other 67s and 68s.

Kurt and Ed, I think we might be getting close to having enough information to feel comfortable posting those numbers.

1969 Z28 driveshaft was nothing special.  1969 AMA information says all Camaro driveshafts were 49.56 inches long.  Still working on fine tuning the details.

Hi, I have an original 23,000 mile 69 Z/28. My particular driveshaft has a part number stenciled on it. I don't see any others on this thread with anything similar, other than what Bertfam posted.  The car is a Los Angeles build, 03B, 302 with M21.  Photos:



I hope this will be some help in your research. I look forward to participating in this forum.

Did you check the length from the center of 1 u joint to the center of the other?

That's a Service replacement prop shaft, used for all except TH400 - they were furnished without the yoke and U-joints (unlike the production prop shaft assembly, which included the yoke and U-joints).

Part numbers were different.  Length apparently for Firebirds 67-69 was 49.96 for all except TH400 cars which were 49.30 inches.  Stripes apparently different than Camaro.

Well it depends.  What year and what application driveshaft are you talking about?  TH400 yoke is different than others.  All 69 Camaro driveshafts  were 49.56 inches long but yokes were different based on application.

were the yokes the same ? Will the drive shafts interchange ?

Ok, got my drive shaft out and can report some preliminaries.
Yokes are in-line.
Centers are 49.95"
Bolted straps on diff yoke.
Engine, trans and build as per my sig.

Hi Bryon, sorry for my absence. More info to report.
Have found the orange paint stripe on mine @ 12" approx from the transmission yoke center and what appears to be the green stripe a bit further down - more cleaning needed for that one.

U-joints in line. E-clips on caps. Orange stripe 17 1/4" from front, then maybe light blue or green, then dark blue.
Hard to tell I'll post pictures. I am surprised at all the variations.

 I think that I know why there is a 1/2 inch difference in driveshaft lengths between the '67-68 and '69 driveshafts but want info to verify. I believe it is because there is a difference in lengths of the transmission yokes being used for these years. Can anyone measure their transmission yokes from center of u-joint to end of yoke and report their findings. Be sure to include what year yours is. They should measure either 4.875 inches or 5.5 inches.

My '69 L48 is 5.5 inches. I thought when we rebuilt the driveshaft it was the wrong one but checking another for verification it was correct. My driveshaft is also clocked and that brought on a bunch of weird looks and a big discussion at the shop until the post about the drivehsafts come up.

So I am guessing that your driveshaft measures approximately 49.5 inches long. If you had a driveshaft that measures closer to 50.0 inches long I would guess the transmission yoke to measure 4.875 inches long.

I just joined so Im new to this forum. I do have a 67 convertible camaro origianlly with a 6cy. and a 50" driveline on a PG. I removed the PG and engine for a TH400 and a 454.
The driveline fit but it has NO room for movement.
The Th400 has 31 splines i believe.
I need approx 1/2 to 3/4 inch more room.
Im going to order it from "Inland Empire Driveline" and go pick it up as i live in OC.
They have a website with all the pertinent info to order a correct one. Looks like they come with 1310 Spicers.
FRom what I gather, the big block sits back a little and thus I need a shorter driveline.
I will ask the guys tomorrow and just order it new, as I dont want any problems from not having enough room for movement, however, I do believe the original big block 49.5" would have worked.
The one I currently have is 50" from center of U-joints.
This forum helped me get my measurements correct.

Before you order the new shaft, check your motor mounts. I think there were different mounts for small block, big block, and 6 cyls. I am told you can move the engine forward or backward a little bit by using different mounts. Might be worth a little time.

I believe it is because there is a difference in lengths of the transmission yokes being used for these years. Can anyone measure their transmission yokes from center of u-joint to end of yoke and report their findings. Be sure to include what year yours is. They should measure either 4.875 inches or 5.5 inches.

I don't think that is the reason for the different lengths.  From above...here is what I have been able to find out...

For 67 and 68 cars with the 396, different frame mounts for the engine were used which pulled the engine forward about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.  Also note the holes for the 396 cross member for use with a manual transmission had the transmission mounting holes about 3/4 inch forward.  The PG, TH350, 3 speed manual and 4 speed manual transmissions are all close to 27 5/8 or 27 3/4 inches long (including bellhousing length).  But the TH400 is slightly longer - around 28 1/4 inches.

67 and 68 Camaros used two different lengths.  49.96 inches for all applications except the 396 with manual trans which was 50.46 inches.

69 Camaros all used the same length, 49.56 inches.  This appears to be due to the frame mounts all being the same for the big blocks and small blocks.  Although I can't find anything listed, it seems the TH400 driveshaft should be slightly shorter.

So that is why I am looking for actual measurements, to confirm these numbers.

The second photo in reply #106 (Bob) is the first Camaro driveshaft I've ever seen with the heavy-duty Saginaw-type nylon-injected yokes and trunnions (vs. the usual retaining-ring design); I've only seen the injected design before on full-size cars with concentric isolation dampers.

John,

Yes. Needless to say, I was extremely surprised to see the pins when I pulled the driveshaft out during my restoration. I quickly began my search to try to figure out what was going on and ran across across this thread:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8333.0

Of course I can't say with 100% certainty that this is the original born-with driveshaft, but I can assure you that in my 35 years of owning this car the driveshaft has never been removed. The other thing that I found odd was that the date code (0207) on my rear axle tube is one week after the build date (01D) of the car. Again, I found this odd and from what my research has found, GM had a strike right around the time my car was built and may have resulted in some parts being delayed from their suppliers. I also found this issue on my brake booster which is date 038. Could some parts have been changed during previous ownership? Maybe, but from what I'm uncovering during my restoration there are a few more parts that seem out of sequence with the build date of the car. I'd be curious to know what others have found with cars built around this time frame.

Hi John,

  Here is the front yoke on my 67 4B LOS with the original 396/TH400 + drive shaft that uses injection.
The rear used the injection too.

Thank You James.  That is the correct length as far as I know.  All 69s should be the same length. 

If you do some cleaning, I would not use anything abrasive. Try some WD40 first to see what that does.

Bentley,  I think sanding the drive shaft will totally remove any remaining paint residue (along wtih the surface rust) as it did on mine.  The best method I've seen used is 'soaking' the driveshaft in  Metal Rescue, or the harbor Frieght Label "evapoRust".   Both those products work very well.   I'd degrease the driveshaft, then rig up a tight bathing fixture; some of the guys used a large PVC (that just fit the drive shaft yokes, make it long enough, glue on one end cap, and use the other as pushon/off.   Put the driveshaft in, and fill to the top with the EvapoRust or Metal Rescue..   from what I've seen here and on TC, it works super... :)

Thanks, Bryon/Gary I may try this. Shaft has surface rust and I thought it was too far gone as far as ever finding paint, but worth a try, I guess. I do believe the original U joints are still in the shaft though. They have a dimple aprox.1/2 in, diam on each side with a letter in the bottom...kinda hard to see at this point. There are clips on the ends like snap rings.

We are getting close to working on a report for driveshafts. 

I may be contacting some of you soon to see if I can get your permission to use some of your photos.

If anyone has any more data to share it would be appreciated.

Specifically requesting any pics of the stripes on driveshafts from TH350 cars right now.

Thanks!

I finally got around to crawling under the 67 to find this info.  Hopefully it is helpful.

Here is what I found:

1967 Camaro RS/SS 396 BB with 400 TH auto.
LOS car built 03C third week of March 67
driveshaft length from center yoke to yoke 50" or very close to it
attachment to pinion yoke with straps  - injection on other joints
Code on rear axle is Q W 0 ? 0 7 G 1 (the 4th digit is hidden behind axle clamp, I wasn't going to move it)  It seems that these numbers were more left on the axle than in the place that is stated in the pictures.  I had a hard time finding it till I looked and wire brushed it more to the left. 
I found 2 paint stripes on the shaft,  From the front to the rear appears to be orange and the rear possibly green?  but i am somewhat colorblind in that color!  Spaced about 6 inches apart and about an inch wide, more near the front.
position of the u joint flanges are "inline".

Hope this helps you all.

Summarizing from my post to a different thread re my driveshaft (I had previously posted that I'd cleaned and painted my driveshaft long ago, but that driveshaft was from my Nomad, not the Z28..  thankfully!)..  So I found my original driveshaft and cleaned, measured it and photographed it.

Paint stripes:   Orange and White stripes at the 11-13" mark from the Yoke end; yellow splash around 10" along...

Just recently at the MCACN show I had lunch with one of my Cleveland Chevelle car buddies and his friend. In talking with them I found out they both worked at the Chevrolet plant in Parma Ohio back in the mid to late 60's. My buddy is about 68 ish now.
 They said they were both involved with drive shaft's and balancing, they made shafts for more than several Chevrolets'.
I specifically ask if they knew anything about the strips, they explained that when doing the code stripes, and while the shaft was still in the ballancing fixture,  the guy might hold several paint brushes at a time while the shaft turned in the fixture.
 So the one reason to post all this, they both indicated to me that one the the 3 strips was a shift code. If it was consistent, who knows ? And if not, that may explain why you'll see only two stipes at times.

I wanted to add a little more info while doing the de-rusting process.

Casting numbers







Paint markings from yoke side down - Orange  Green  White





Some type of green dab of paint below the stipes.  Will know more once rust conversion is finished.

Still soaking but I am starting to see the paint stripes better and better..  Also looks like whoever it was doing the painting grabbed it while it was still wet.

Length is the only thing I am aware of.. I assume the striping could be for the passing of RPM tests..??..  Bryon may know more..

OK.  I wasn't aware of the length difference... So there's no strength/diameter/wall thickness difference?    In the factory they needed a quick visual reference to help them grab the correct part for the car coming down the line, and the length being different would be sufficient to justify the striping difference.

PS. I've never owned a big block... A mighty mouse is more than GOOD!.. :)   but if a car part from a BB car can be used on a SB car, I'm interested.. :)

I dont think its just striping for bb vs sb.  auto bb's had a different stripping as well..  Would like to see a compiled list of data..  Come on Bryon!!  ;D

Yep, I suppose the Driveshaft Survey Table will tell us all the differences... :)

Have been working on a driveshaft report for about 4 years. It's close to being ready for release.  :)

Length and yoke type are the main differences.

You would be right Mr. Cook.  That holds true in the Pontiac world and have seen a lot of those differences restoring Pontiacs.  Transmission choice does have an effect on the striping colors and configurations.  I'm sure Chevrolet does the same thing.

Decided to derust the yoke last night.  Found another nice paint marking..

Yes it does help!  Thank You!  Could you do one more thing please?  Measure the length from the center of one u joint to the center of the other u joint.  Having some help to hold one end would be best.  Try to get the measurement to the closest 1/16th of an inch.

If you could...please measure from the center of one u joint to the center of the other.

Another way of saying that is "the center of each cap or cup that holds the needle bearings for the u joint".

i can offer some info on my `69z, needs all the rubber replaced on the brake system so i`ll have all the wheels off it soon and will take some pics for you if needed. i can see the stripes on the driveshaft just looking under it so i know there is at least one visible.

That would be great Eldon. It most likely has one orange and one white stripe, but if you could confirm, I would appreciate it. :)
