WE HAVE YOKES THAT ARE 8" FROM THE CENTER OF THE U-JOINT TO THE END. TO USE THEM IN THE POWERGLIDES, WE TURN DOWN THE OUTPUT SHAFT OF THE TRANS IN FRONT OF THE SPLINES. THAT WAY, THE YOKE HAS MORE SPLINE CONTACT WHEN IT IS IN OR OUT.

IF YOU DO NOT REWORK THE OUTPUT SHAFT ON THE TRANS THE YOKE WILL GO ON THE SHAFT 4 1/4". IF YOU REWORK THE SHAFT THE YOKE WILL GO ON
6 1/8". WE DO HAVE THEM IN STOCK .

AS TO THE COST TO CUT DOWN A POWERGLIDE SHAFT TO USE THE LONG YOKE, WE GET $25.00 TO DO THE SHAFT. IF YOU ARE NOT IN OUR AREA, MOST SHOPS THAT HAVE A LATHE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT FOR YOU AND SAVE YOU THE SHIPPING.
THE MOST A YOKE WILL BE ABLE TO GO ON A STOCK SHAFT ,THAT I KNOW OF,WITHOUT THE SHAFT OR SPLINE IN THE YOKE BEING TURNED IS 4 1/2"
THE BEST YOKE TO USE WITHOUT TURNING THE SHAFT OR YOKE , THAT I KNOW OF , IS THE 6" YOKE.
P.S. I DO KNOW OF SOME RACERS THAT HAVE TURNED DOWN THE SHAFT BY REMOVING THE EXTENSION HOUSING AND USING A GRINDER ON THE SHAFT IN THE TRANSMISSION.IT HAS WORKED FOR THEM. I DID NOT SAY THAT IT WOULD WORK AND WOULD NOT DO IT IF I WERE YOU.

I took an air grinder with a very thin 3" or 4" blade and cut the splines about 2 or 3 inches longer on the output shaft. Just take the tail housing off and put a rag around the shaft to keep trans clean. I have done this with several. It just takes a little care. Works great.

i read on another forum that the yoke out of an astro van (i'm assuming the four wheel drive ones) are 1 inch longer than the stock yokes your probably using, don't know if its true or not, might be worth checking out
