Thanks for the info! I'll check the dimensions tonite.
I recently replaced my worn factory trans mount with a polyurethane mount. After doing so, I started getting very intense vibrations that started at about 60 mph. Before I could take it up to 75-80 no problem.
My guess is some kind of driveline problem, which the old, worn mount was masking. Possibly out of balance driveshaft, bad U-joint, something like that.
Working under the car, I did notice that about an inch and a half of the exposed, machined portion of the slip yoke was sticking out of the tailshaft, which seemed like a lot to me. Just wanted to check and cover all bases.
I once asked a drive shaft place this same question; they said only about an inch or so. I was curious, because I suspected inadequate penetration of a driveshaft, causing my rear bushing to fail, causing my driveshaft to flail, causing my tail housing to shell (into two autonomous pieces). Now I just tell the guys it's x inches from the tail housing to rear u-joint centerline... PLEAASEeee make me one... by Saturday night's drags??????!!!!!

Took my 64 /12 vert (289 2v) for its first drive yesterday after about 3 years of work. Rotisserie body work, rebuilt carb, and literally new or rebuilt everything else. The motor was not rebuilt as i had it rebuilt in the late 80s and had very little mileage on it.
As i am putting the care...
So, this happened.
Last monday was supposed to be a great day: We were finally going to bring our mustang up for examination before getting a title here in the Netherlands.
Let me clear up a few things first: I recently replaced the water temp. and fuel gauges because they were broken. Since I...
Mustang born on 5/4/65 from Dearborn.
I have the lower clutch rod that is like a crooked finger (pre-dates 65) and has a small spring that holds it on the throw out bearing arm which the spring is connected to the bell housing with the spring holder.
I have replaced the equalizer bar with new...
I've been reading a lot more than posting for the last few years, but that might change a bit considering my current undertaking. I'm roadtripping across the USA in my '69 Cougar. For those who don't know, the Cougar is basically a Mustang with different sheetmetal and a 3" longer...
So I had to cut off of the PW slave cylinder-to-center link nut on my '65 and ended up dinging the stud threads in the process...anyone know the size/thread of the stud so I can pick up a new bolt and also retap the stud?
