Would the long tailshaft from a T-96 overdrive bolt to the back of a T86 truck transmission? I have found a T86 for cheap (truck) with overdrive, but it's the wrong "output".

No. Transmission main cases for overdrive and non-overdrive transmissions are different, even within a series. And the T96 "long tail" OD cases will not bolt up to an earlier T96 overdrive main case. I tried that.

He is not just changing from one length to the other. He was talking about mixing T-96 and T-86 transmission parts. It would take more than a different driveshaft.
