Can anyone tell me how much clearance can I safely run between the rear seal at the transmission and the yolk on the driveshaft.
I have a 3 link with 7 degrees of pinion angle and a 900#/3700# pull bar angled down at 12 degrees. I currently have 1 1/4 inch clearance between the yolk and the back housing of the powerglide.

Thanks KK17, 1 1/4" is worrying me, thats why
I have asked all of yall on the forum for advise. This is a brand new car and I don't know how much travel I am going to get from my pullbar. I definitely don't want to bust a brand new Bushore. Anybody else have an opinion?

1 3/4" to 2" is the average range you want.
