    Changing Transmissions -- CV joints and axle half-shaft lengths

    I am trying to mount a 901 tranny into a 1973 coupe body (which has the later Al trailing arms on it).

    I found that the flanges on the 901 are wider (stick out more from the tranny case) than the ones do on the 915 trans. How do I fit the 901 into the later car? Can I just swap the inner CV joints (next to the trans) to use the early kind?

    Do I find early axle half-shafts that might be shorter lengths than the ones on the car? Will any year CV joints fit on any half-shafts?


    BTW: I am well aware of the strenth issues on the tranny.
