The 1.76 input shaft is supposed to be 12 7/8" and the 1.82 input shaft is 12 5/8". So, it sounds like they sent you the correct one for the 1.76. If you truly need the 12 5/8" long shaft, you can not use the 12 7/8" as the torque convertor would not be able to slide on far enough. The gold wedding band fits inside the small slinger/shield that rests against the hub inside the high gear drum.

Thanks, Brian. It also helps that this past weekend I was freshening up a glide. The JW Powerglide Transmission book is a pretty good handbook that I use.

When I started racing over 20 years ago, I had the money for the parts or the labor. I bought lots of books and learned how to work on it, so that I could have money for more parts. So, I learned a lot of the ways to not do things. One of the most fun was finding out that there are over 100 needle bearings in the countershaft of a Muncie 4-speed held in by wheel bearing grease.

BTE's shafts are universal, no need for a 1.82 or 1.76.
