On my '75 I am about to pull the 465/205 and put in the 700r4/208. Will my driveshafts sawp out?
never really had much reason to pay attention to the 700/208 stuff, but I'm gonna go with no.
700/208 combo is longer than the 465, so I'm thinking the front shaft will be too short, rear too long. As well, you'll have different u-joints on the 12-bolt and 10 bolts.
FWIW I fit some 10 bolt front shaft in my truck while I had it up on blocks. (must have been an auto driveshaft) As soon as I dropped the truck down, I noticed the shaft was crushed together since it was too long. I think this is a problem you'll run into with any auto/manual (or ugh, vice versa) swap.
i think they both use front and rear 1310 upper joint, right?
Not sure what number it is, but my '74 or '75 465/205 combo shafts required an adapter u-joint for the axle end (rear only for some reason) with the 10 bolts in my '86. Once I replaced the rear yoke with an older 12 bolt one, I was able to go with a "standard" u-joint.
