I would take Hustler up on the auto driveshaft. I bought my 1.8 diff from him and he gave me that auto driveshaft ( Not knowing there was any difference) and it didn't work.

Bigger pictures of splines please! I cut splines/gears for a living and would love to have some up close pictures, if possible!
