Questions about driveshafts :)

Hi
I got Ford f-100 1974 stepside with 302efi engien AOD tans.
My driveshaft is damaged cannot be repaired.
Wondering if i can use for example a 1983-2010 Ford Ranger driveshaft ?
Or if there is some other joint that will fit ?

impossible for me to get hold of an original, because I live in Sweden.
hoping for a quick answer

Best regards from Sweden / Ex3em

Do you have a local driveline shop? They can usually adapt or even make you a driveshaft.

I'm trying to find the one that has the same joints, so that I can adapt it to the car.
driveline shop is very expensive here.

Did you twist the u joint cap eyes off? Its not that impossible to get, so you need a d/s for a 1974 F100 shortbed, 302 w/EFI, swap in or add on? AOD trans was swapped in too right? So will a stock one fit length wise?

What are your old d/s ones measurements, I mail parts to other FTE members to Sweden and Norway.

The AOD trans was not ever offered in your truck so the driveshaft is not stock .. Replacing the tube should not be that much

If the trans is an AOD not an AODE the front DS yoke from a 81 crown vic, grand marguis to 1991 will work. The rear will have to be modified to fit the 9" (if that's what you have) pinion yoke.
An AODE might work but, I'm not near my stash right now so I can't check.

99.999% sure no other car uses your set up.

Especially not a '83-'10 Ranger.

1987 E150 302 AOD.

AOD introduced in 1980 LTD/Grand Marquis/Lincoln Town Car/Continental Mark VI/Thunderbird/Cougar 302, introduced in 1981 F100/150 302.

1974 F100: 240/300 I-6 & 302 = C4 ~ 360/390/460 = C6.

Can't you cut off the 2 ends being careful only to cut the tube .. then carefully grind/cut the remaining tube from the ends and then reuse ? or are they damaged also ?
