    How do you correctly measure driveshaft length on a 208 slipyoke output? How much engagement should there be on the slipyoke, half its length, 3/4 of its length? Also does anyone know off hand how long the 208's slipyoke is?

    who ever is building your shaft should be the one telling you where to measure from.

    When Jesse built mine for a 241 he just asked me to measure from the end of the spline shaft sticking out of the t/case to the centre line of the rear axle yoke. He did the maths and sent me a perfect d/shaft!
