    What size axle fits a u-joint with a cap that measures 1 1/16"? I purchased some spare shafts for my k-5 back at the end of january and the short side inner and both stubs fit the 5-760 u-joints perfect. Today i tried to install the last shaft and it would not go. My 5-760 caps measure out at about 1 3/16" while the shaft yoke measures out at 1 1/16". Notified the seller that i must have gotten a different long side inner but i was wondering if anyone knew what it was from. The first pic shows how the 5-760 cap fits in the axles cap hole. The next shows the difference in the cap sizes. vAhhh piss! Only posted one pic. Oh well, you get the idea.

    I know some early Dana 44's used the smaller 260X u-joint.

    Man the two shafts are way different in diameter. Someone else mentioned the 260x joint. I dont supose they make a conversion joint?
