The bushing that fll out is a press fit in the tail housing. you will need a new bushing and a replacement tail housing for your transmission as it is no longer even aproximating an interference fit at this time.

You can take the yoke you have and have it turned to the proper size in a lathe at a machine shop. I assume it is an aftermarket 4340 steel yoke (though they are sold normally for a larger 1350 size instead of the 1310 used in passenger cars).

Yokes are easy to find and are cheap if we are talking a stock size cast iron piece off of a junk yard car. Cheaper than a machinist will charge you in labor to turn it. I have three I use as plugs to fit the three common spline counts on transmission out put shafts.

It's getting hard to find good machinist in the Austin area. I think it's the high rent honestly, especially right now. Lot's of places are just closed.

I'm sending this Hughes yoke back. It's measuring 1.504 with my calipers. Their website doesn't even list the OD for it

I found that the tailshaft bushing ID is 1.5", so if the yoke is anything over 1.500, its gonna be a very tight fit

I went ahead and tapped that hughes yoke all the way in. It's still pretty tight but it goes. Im gonna sand it a bit more with 600grit, and it should be ok.

The Spicer yoke actually measured 1.507 so it was pretty much the same deal

It has to be loose enough for fluid to get between the yoke and bushing, it'll take forever with 600, lol..

And it probably will not ne round when you are finished with your efforts. That is why i recommended using an engine lathe to turn it.

The drive shaft spins at 1,500 to 2,100 RPM in normal operation. It is a close tolerance part.

I went ahead and had the driveshaft built. I went 53" center to center. They built it with DOM tubing.

Now that it has the extra assembled weight the yoke slides on better. I think it's gonna work out good.
