Here's a picture DanU posted a long time ago. It shows themikes97 said:How do I tell that the driveshaft that I am looking at is a 93 Mark VIII vice another year? I found a wrecking yard that says he has two of them but I want to make sure I am getting the right one.
This is what you want... The color doesn't matter as I pulled mine out of a 93 Mark and the color stripe it has are different. The two piece shaft has a small gap approx 6-8 inches up from the rear yoke. The one piece is welded at that area.mikes97 said:have a three color bands too?? because if so i screwed because i am color blind like a dog. Also as a far as the two pieces welded together did not seem clear to me? I was under the impression that the two piece type was a tube in a tube???? So any more clearification would help me,....but thanks for the inputs so far
