Anyone know the length measurement of a 69' 4spd drive shaft?

Thanks !

The component ID section also has some good info.  The measurements from mine are; overall length is 51.5" and the yolk adds about 7" more.  Brian

So length is end to end or is it center to center of the U joints ?

Thanks for posting that, so they use bottom of one register to the top of the other which is center to center of the U joints.

     That is how the drawing looks to me. Easier way to measure center to center than trying to position a tape measure in the middle of a hole & reading in the middle of the next hole.
