C4 on left and C7 on right
Paul, funny how we are thinking alike, I sent them a email asking if they can custom make that same stub shaft to length and they cannot.
John B, can you supply the above correct length stub shaft? I can supply a sample C4. This would allow us to use the original drive shafts, so you would be able to include that cost in consideration as to price.
John, what I think we need is the C7 33 spline stub shaft redone exactly as it is with the exception that it would be the same overall length as the C4. As you can see in post #143.
The area between the spline root and the CV face, I'll call it the "bell segment", should be contoured like the C4. This is to clear the back of the upright in the same way as the original.
Maybe we could see how it all goes together for Paul and then go from there. It might be that the C7 stub shaft will work with spacers to correct for the length as it relates to the CV joint/driveshaft length.
I could supply the C4 stub shaft, and a bearing with the correct splines if need be. Let me know what you think.
Oh, and I contacted the Driveshaft Shop and the 1/2" spacers are $53.00 each.
Wow, so let me start off with a mea culpa! I had and have no intention of running afoul of the forum. I guess I am very uninformed when it comes to forum policies etc. That being said I certainly don't consider myself a vendor. I am not sure how you define vendor but I would image that most vendors would envision making some sort of profit off whatever they are offering and that would definitely not be my case. I would need to charge about $1500 a piece to compensate me for my time. The price I am passing along is what my machinist is charging me. And I don't think he is profiting from this exercise either as he is doing this as more of a favor for me for past business.Paul, while I am amazed at your enginuty - at this point I need to ask you to stop any attempts at sales on this forum until you have taken steps to reach out to Ron Earp and become a registered vendor here...
