You had me scratching my head for a mo', but the BA wagon has a one piece tailshaft.

Truth is, there's very little that is exchangeable between the AU & the B series.

ok. pretty sure the only differances between the two are length [wagon/ute & pretty sure both are alloy] & possibly the diff mount. otherwise should be ok [not 100% but i know the lengths are differant wagon to ute] .

no problem.

so just to recap ........ wagon/ute are different length. measure from unijoint to unijoint to workout the actual length needed. don't think the yokes are different as i'm pretty sure the BTR was same/same [so to speak]. if you need a custom one it's easier to find [lol] a steel tailshaft & mod that as that was what i had to do to shorten a tailshaft for a 5speed in a BA wagooon [what i was told as they didn't work on the alloy ones].
