AE series drive shafts

Postby SkunkWeRX » Fri Aug 17, 2018 9:03 pm

Had a look through the tech post but couldnt find any info

Does any one know if the AE series drive shafts are all interchangeable?
such as 4afe models with 4age models etc??

They fit, but FE ones lack the hanger bearing the GE models do.

1990 NA6 MX-5 - because reasons
2018 Ranger - Because workcar
1997 FD3S RX-7 Type R - all brap, all the time
OMG so shiny!

Uneven length vs even length?

The drivers one is always long, but FE dont use the bearing that the GE ones do. Assume to do with lack of horsepower :lol:

Probably. What I meant about equal length is the inner CV joint on the right side matches where the inner CV is on the left technically making the end half shaft the same length reducing differences in power transfer to the wheels. The SW20 NA has a long right side while the turbo has the carrier bearing setup. GE vs GTE in this case.

I know that with the hanger bearing setup the auto vs manual gearbox/driveshaft combo can't be mixed and matched.
Have to manual driveshaft for manual box as the lengths are slightly different and the hanger bearing won't bolt to the block
I used to think that the orange and green tictacs gave you special powers. The orange ones would make you stronger and the green ones would make you faster. So i used to eat some green ones and run around my lounge as fast as i could, then eat the orange ones and try to pick up the sofa. I wish it were true!
