thanks red bullet, yes we are adding a used MFD axle that is missing the front shaft.

measure from centre of the yoke to centre of yoke.

we have the slip yoke but not the front piece its NLA so have to get one made.

Picture of where the missing shaft goes.

I don't remember the U joint number but the one to fit the Elwood axle is hard to come by and about $140 if you can find one. Their is a U joint a step narrower that you can put a spacer washer on each side and it fit perfect for $35. I can get you the shaft length to night. I remade my hanger bearing bracket to straighten up the drive line. Mine had alot chater form the slip yoke and you couldn't grease the hanger bearing either. Now it is much quiter and you can grease the hanger bearing.

We also had to make the bracket , we left about 1" space between it and the MCV.

The slip yoke end should be 3 splines counterclockwise from inline with the U joint at the transfer case when viewed from the front .

Why could you not grease the hanger bearing?

The hanger bracket was just single piece to 3/4" flat bar drilled and cut to size. After the bearing in the pillar block turned to line up with the shaft the grease holes didn't come close to lining up.

OK that makes sense, we used 2" x4 " x 3/8" then welded a flat bar on an angle so the grease fitting lined up

The shaft lenght 31 3/4" center of the joints. This bracket is two 3/4" flat bar welded together. It only clears the MCV by 1/4"

33 inches from center yoke to center yoke. I made my bracket by welding one flat piece behind the other to try and get it to run as strait as possible.
