Does anybody know the difference in length between the early 240z driveshaft and a later 240z (73) driveshaft. I am pretty shore that the later one is longer. Also, what is the difference between the late 240z driveshaft and a late 77-78 280z driveshaftl.

Thanks

The later 240Z driveshaft is longer because of the relocated position of the diff. The 280Z driveshaft has a different mount flange that bolts to the diff because of the R-200 vs. R-180 and has non-replaceable u-joints. This is the one you want if you are changing to an R-200.

If I was putting a r200 in my 73 240z, can I use my 240 driveshaft and replace the mounting flange with one from a 280zx driveshaft. This way I don't have to buy the 280z driveshaft. I can get a 280zx driveshaft for free and have the 240 shaft.

I can't remember if the 73 240Z and a 280Z driveshaft are the same length. To be safe, you should use a '75-'78 driveshaft. The 280ZX shaft won't work because it is a different length. You could try putting the ZX flange on the 240Z shaft, but I don't know if it will work. I always just use a 280Z shaft. It's the easiest way. Good luck!!!
