figuring it out. might have to shorten it.

the pinion on the axle has a flat flange. needs a yoke bolted to it that houses a U joint.

then use a U joint that fits that and the other 2 Ujoint ends to match the nissan Driveshaft.....to be continued.

Sounds like you have a Chevy motor & Transmission, Ford rear axle, and A Nissan driveshaft. I would use as much of the FORD stuff as possible and just omit the Nissan parts. Ford driveshaft to a ford rear end, but that probably just relocates the issue to the other end of the driveshaft. There's more likely a ford to chevy part before there is a Nissan to ford part.

Or you can use the stock 8.8 flange and a conversion joint...

Reminds me of an International Harvester delivery truck I had back in the early 80s. Ford starter, Chevy distributor cap, I think it had a Dodge fuel pump. I named her "Frankenbitch". Worked hard to fix her up for a hunting, camping, partying wagon.

On the u joint, try NAPA p/n 372. That may be incorrect, IDR. You should need a 3310 to 3330 joint to use the stock ford flange, to most gm driveshafts
