HI GUYS & GALS, While checking my u-joints today, I happened to notice that the space betweem the trans seal and the seat of the yoke was about 4 inches. I have a m-21, I thought this seemed a little to much. Was wondering if anyone knows the correct space.

My local 'shaft shop recommends the yolk be fully seated into the trans then backed out at least 1 inch. If you were to measure from the center of the u-joint cap in the yolk to the center of where the rear u-joint cap would be located in the rear end yolk, you will know how long your 'shaft should be. I used this method on their recommendation and found that to install or remove the 'shaft in my 69, I need to support the rear axle as if on a level surface or I cannot remove nor install the 'shaft. Another quarter inch shorter would probably done the trick.
