Has anyone ever cut more splines in the output shaft on a powerglide. I have the aftermarket slip yoke to keep the driveshaft from coming out when I let off but it was bottoming out on the output shaft. I used a die grinder and cut the splines longer but was wondering if it would make it weaker or anything. THANK'S

It shouldn't make any difference. When the drag racers build a "shorty glide", They cut off some of the output shaft & respline it. Once & a while they might twist the splines, but not often. Hope this helps.
