280zx tail shaft length

Recommended Posts

hey guys im trying to find out if the tail shafts are different between auto and manual in a 280zx 2+2, i know that a 240z and 260z have the same shaft and i would think being the same boxes that the 280zx would also be the same.

Going by the parts manual they have different part numbers manual to auto for the 280zx 2+2

 

240z/260z list the same partnumbers for manual/auto which is different to those of the 280zx 2+2 (that goes with out saying - different chassis design so prop shafts will be different)

They'd have to be the same,

even the 280zx Gbox cross member fits a 260z.

I've got a couple of manual 280zx tailshafts in the shed if you want me to measure one

i done some more searching in the factory service manual and it only lists the 1 tail shaft length for both manual and auto, so i guess ill just have a go and see how it pans out

Makes sense and after I posted the penny dropped the difference in part numbers will be due to the difference in the rear flange joint is my guess as manuals have R200 and autos R180.
