Drive shaft length

PostPost by: TWebb » Sun Jan 29, 2023 5:43 pm

It appears I was provided with an incorrect drive shaft. Does anyone out there know the standard length of an Elan driveshaft?

For background, the seller had removed the motor and driveshaft when I picked up the car. In the spares box was what I believed was the proper driveshaft. It was not.

He has a number of driveshafts in his race shop. Trying to shortcut the problem by being sure what he sends is the correct length, has the correct flange, and spline pattern.
