Will it fit with 302 + Tremec TKO 5 speed transmission?

Asked by: Eric
This is for the borg warner t5 transmission. You would have to measure for the correct length.

You would have to measure for driveshaft length to be sure you get the correct driveshaft.

Just to be sure. This is s direct fit for an original 1966 289 with an original 3 speed auto trans? Just aluminum rather then steel?

I see this question is asked already (will this driveshaft fit my 1965 289v8 c4 trans?) the steel drive shaft is 51" long and fits this application' but the aluminum 51" doesn't? WHY?

Asked by: does not matter
All that makes it for a T5 is the yoke, if this is the correct length, you'll be able to swap your your and U joints to this and use it.
