    I am replacing my stick with an auto in my 78' 3/4 4x4. Question is, if using a T350, will I need a short or long shaft? Will the automatic fit up with the transfer case with no problem? Thanks again guys!

    What did the transmission that you are installing, come out of? and I think the shafts are the same.

    If you've got a 205 t/c with your stick,<br>it won't mount to your T350 without an <br>adapter(Advance adapters makes one)and <br>the splines don't match. It's easier to<br>use the case that originally came with your<br>T350, as for a driveshaft, autos use shorter<br>shafts than sticks because the overall length<br>of the trans and transfer case, is longer for<br>autos, so the rear driveshafts are a different length. The front shaft should<br>be the same length, but you need to check<br>the t/c side, some have yokes and some have<br>a flange type mount.<br>4LOW
