Stan, you're absolutely correct-but when you need what you need, sometimes 'prodding' is the easiest solution! :wink:
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

As I remember the two suppliers for those CV shafts were Citroen and GKN.  Perhaps someone still has a catalog for these folks.

Based on the records I've seen, you are correct about Citroen and GKN.  I've ordered a set of Ebay reman units for a '79 Horizon, mainly to get my hands on what should be the correct length shafts.
