 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.

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.
