    crap! 12\" long 2wd th350 tailshaft housing!

    damn, well a guy came by here last week looking for a th350, he said he needed a medium shaft, and well medium shaft is not a good way to describe what length th350 ou need, but i knew i have the th350 longtail out of the 81 c-10 sitting, but i didnt tell him that yet, waited til tonight when a friend of mine came over in his basically pro street 77 camaro and said he knew of a guy looking for a longtail th350 tranny, so we went over there and there was a th350 longtail laying ont eh ground next to a 76 chevy wagon demo derby car, i look at the tranny closer and it loooked to be longer than even a truck longtail th350, so i ask him if he has a tape measure and he measures the tailshaft housing length and the frickin thing is 12" long! damn

    it is normal th350 27 spline output and everything, and its not any larger case size than a th350 or anything, overall lengthof the tranny is about 34" in which is what the old early 70s big car th400 were but they are bigger case size and are 32 output shaft splines.


    odd....


    whats going on here ? is this a 76-older wagon thing or something ?

    hmmm..

    9" for trucks 73-up

    18" ?

    man that would be 40.25" overall length then, because this 12" tail th350 is 34.25" long overall

    the common truck ones are 31 11/16" overall and common car short tail ones are 3" shorter and are the shortest 2wd ones


    you sure theres a longer th350 than 34.25" ?

    if so then techniclaly both the truck 31 11/16" tranny and the 34.25" tranny would both be "medium" shaft and the super long 18" tail 40.25" overall would be long tai but everyone always calls the 73-up pickup 9" tailones the long tail and the car 6" tailones the short tail ones
    cuz well thats all you ever see around other than 4x4 ones which are all the same stubby short shaft with no shaft housing at all


    this is crazy.....
