Re: AMC 20 Driveshaft fit my 44?
Fer whatever it's worth...... I swapped out a 20 for a Scout 44...... The original D/S will work, but it's not 'right'. I used the original D/S for quite awhile, but never off-road. The problem is, that the Scout 44 diff is quite a bit smaller than the AMC 20. So, when you hook up the original D/S, the slip-joint on the D/S is stretched to its maximum length-limit. It works ok, on-road. But, off-road, the D/S will want to stretch some, and will likely force the slip splines through the 'grease-seal-retainer'. Even then, the D/S will probably not come apart. But, to do the job 'right', you need your D/S made longer.
