    I want to fit a T50 into my kE70 wagon, can I just split my current tailshaft and the front half of any T50 tailshaft on? or cant they be split?

    There are usually no flanges to seperate it, you will need to get an ae71 tailshaft or have a tailshaft made.

    almost correct...

    you can split KE tailshafts. there is a chunky bolt inside the uni joint, you can only get to it with a spanner.

    as can be seen in my little diagram here

    http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u...splitshaft.jpg

    i split my ke tailshaft and tried to join a ae86 tailshaft to it by joining it at the spline in the uni joint.

    it was all going well untill i realised that the ae86 one had a bigger spline, it wasnt much though maybe 2 teeth.

    anyway...as for your problem sam...i reckon you could get a sedan ae71 front half, and add it to your wagon rear half and join them?? just dunno if ae71 and ke70 have the same spline....

    it might pay to meausre the distance from your gearbox end to where it joins and then get a hold of an ae71 one and measure that too?

    You could measure my tail shaft when I drop by, Sam. Or I could measure it for you, just let me know where you'd want it measured from, etc.
    Previous ride: 4AGE powered KE70.

    Current: JZX100 Chaser and '73 Datsun 240z.

    I have a KE70 pannelvan tailshaft here, keep in mind though they use a S series diff, not a borgy. If you think you could use it, let me know.

    adam: thanks I will get back to you on it

    matt: thanks but no I need one off an ae71, I am guessing what you have off the pano is exactly what I have already on my ke70 wagon

    No its entirely different, wagons have a borgy diff, pannos have an S series. Pannos usually have a 1 peice (no centre uni either)

    But you're right, any AE71 one should work... unless you are going to use a T18 T50.
