    hey there, the plan is to do sye on the 241 i bought. ive got a fixed yoke 1350cv driveshaft in the shed, so i can lengthen/shorten it to work. my question is, whats a ball park figure for the length of the fixed yoke rear driveshaft for a k5? doesnt need to be exact, but just wanna know for reference. thanks

    I dont have a CV but I have a SYE and my drive line from the tip to tip of each yoke is 37 inches. Mine is also clocked flat but I really dont think that would matter much.

    I will try and measure mine tomorrow. I am almost positive that it is not over the length of a Ford shaft because I am planning to buy 2 of them. One for the front and one for a spare rear shaft.

    D.D. Machine came out with a Np241planetary to 205 doubler. They have i advertised on Pirate and the kit is about the same cost as a SYE.... Requires some aluminum welding though...
