Drive shaft confusion

Postby DAP » Sat Sep 28, 2013 3:19 pm

I am digging thru my sheds looking for certain M37 parts and I came across multiple drive shafts. Here is what I have:

    1 complete drive shaft end to end approximately including brackets 35" end to end when almost collapsed - I think this is for the rear drive shaft?
    1 complete drive shaft end to end approximately including brackets 45" end to end when almost collapsed tube is dented - I have no idea what this works on, maybe the M43 rear?
    2 complete drive shafts end to end approximately including brackets 39" end to end when almost collapsed - does this go in the front?
    5 male drive shafts with bracket 34" end to end - does this go in the front?
    2 female drive shafts with bracket 11.5" end to end - does this work on front or rear drive shafts?

Once I figure out what I have then I plan to sell some of it.

Hi DAP,

I'll try to measure mine when I get home from work. Off the top of my head I think the rear shaft is the longest.

regards,
bob
