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.

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.
