69 Small Block driveshaft length
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:43:34 PM »
Is the length of the driveshaft different if a car came with a Saginaw or Muncie? Small Block application.

Thanks,

The P & A manual lists a unique part number for all '69s w/Muncie 4-speed.

Wonder if the difference is length, diameter or what?

The AMA specs document shows the same length, diameter, and wall thickness dimension for 3-speed, 4-speed and automatic small-blocks (49.56" x 2.75" x .065"); the different part number in the P&A book for Muncie-equipped cars may relate to U-joint yoke indexing. Service prop shafts were just the shaft, with no U-joints or slip yokes.

Hi Byron,

I have checked it out and a good one.

I will give the info regarding my Z28 and the L65 convertible I just got.

Thanks

Thanks John...I was wondering if a Muncie could be installed in place of a Saginaw...guess so.
