BTW the machine shop is happy with the flexplate and thinks this is the way to go. If they would just finish the eng now!

We are doing 2 cars with this conversion and had planned to shorten the front shaft. But sounds like you have some practical experience here that we can learn from.

The TH200 does appear to be significantly shorter than the T5.

So I guess you moved the center carrier support crossmember back on the frame and then shortened the 2nd shaft?

Regarding a single shaft, we have discussed that too but thought we would try the shortening of the 2 pc shaft to see if it worked. One car is running 1″ shorter/stiffer Eaton Detroit springs-think there’s enough clearance for a 1pc shaft?
