Seems I may have an auto tailshaft not a manual one?
What's the measurement of a manual shaft and auto ?

Also from gearbox to centre bearing mounting holes are different lengths than tailshaft

not 100% sure ... but the tail shaft 'should' be a cupla inches shorter than the auto's in the 1st section... I believe :roll:

The difference is very minimal I doubt I can tell from just a picture unfortunately
Mine measures about 135cm from yoke to diff... tailshaft however from diff to rubber donut is 137.5 cm

I just had a new bearing put in in which cost $60 fitting and $120 for bearing and now it doesn't fit lol ... spewin
Thanks for you help mate
