  • Drive Shaft: 2 piece driveshaft information

    I am putting a combination of studebaker driveline together that was never offered from the factory, I want to run a two piece driveshaft, and I am wondering if there is a table anywhere of the car front and rear driveshaft lengths?

    The car is a 1948 champion convertible, 289 full
    flow motor, t85/od, and a narrowed Ford 9” with a centered pinion yoke.

    I am guessing a custom driveshaft is in my cards, but there is always hope that I can use sections from other car driveshafts.

    YES! You are in Luck because the Tech Writers at Studebaker Corp. wrote the BEST Parts Catalogs in the Business.

    They list the Center of the U Joint Cup hole Length to same on the other end (or shaft end) for each Part Number, for each type: Wheelbase, Differential, Transmission and Engine available in the Year Range of the Chassis Parts Catalogs for the Front and the Rear Shaft in 32nd's and sometimes 64th's of Inches.
