    Pull the tailshaft housing off this will shed some light on the roller bearing (note you have to have a different yoke for a rollerized tail housing)for sure and you may be able to tell if it's an after market tail shaft some are marked. I know the 1.82 tail shafts have a counter bore rather than a center in them, also the stock tail shaft are usually black, which means they we machined after heat treating and most after market show a brighter finish on the machining. None of this is fool proof though. Don't always trust the stampings on the end of the rtail shaft, there was an article/thread on here a few months ago where a person bought a supposedly built to the hilt transmission, and the tail shaft was stamped, when he took it apart it was totally stock, meaning somebody scammed someone by stamping #'s on the tail shaft.

    If it is a rollerized bearing tail shaft, then why does a stock yoke
    fit in it ????
    The stock yoke is sappose to be a few thou larger diameter and you would have to physically force a stock yoke into a rollerized tail housing

    Right ???

    Thanks

    Yeppper,
    ...thats why I asked the original question.
    It didnt make any sense to me because I was tolled it was rollerized, but yet a stock yoke fit in it .

    I will just pull it apart and check, maybe its a bushing in there.

    but thanks
