bit of up-date have chopped all bits i need off manta axle,and after measuring volvo axle it needs 46mm overall cutting out of axle caseing, theres enuf length left on splines so no probs with the half shafts,have decided to use volvo 5 stud pattern and buy two new alloys to fit axle think will be alot stronger that way!!.. clutch fitted and bolted gearbox on..spoke to local propshaft company thay thought best to use two peice propshaft.
