    I completely understand the transmission angle and the rear end angle. For argument sake let’s say the trans is angled down 2° and the rear end is angled up 2°. Once you have the driveshaft installed, the driveshaft should be virtually horizontal. The trans angle cancels out the rear end angle. But, what happens if the engine/ trans is still at the 2 ° angle but is higher or lower than the rear end? The driveshaft will no longer be horizontal. Does that make a difference in how the whole assembly operates? I’m not referring to my bucket. It’s been together for 40+ years. I don’t know just what any of those angles are but I do know the bucket runs just fine. I do know that when I shortened the driveshaft I got the u joint yokes 90° out of phase. That made for some interesting vibrations until I corrected it!

    Hmmm, Isn't it really the same thing but bass ackwards? I never thought about it, but when you hold up to pencils to create each scenario, it makes no difference. Dunno for sure.
