    RXP and RXT driveshaft differences

    Just want to clarify something... The RXP driveshaft gets a little wider after the motor going back to the pump and the RXT driveshaft is just one width throughout? Also, the RXT driveshaft has a couple of "grooves" in the shaft on the motor side while the RXP does not have these. Is that right?

    The RXT driveshaft is also shorter than the RXP shaft

    Here are some pictures. The first one is the driveshaft in question. On the other 2 you can see my conversion shaft which used a 2006 RXP shaft and the shaft in questions next to it. It looks a bit different. I am refering specifically to the grooves after the splines on the motor side. Is the one in question an RXP shaft?

    RXT on top... RXP on bottom.

    Hope this helps.

    If it's a RXP shaft, and the splines are good on the engine side, it will work. I know Ted does some reshaping and addresses the runout on the shaft. They are balanced as well. Past that, Ted is the guy to ask.

    It's hard to believe it's the same shaft, eh? He does such great work on these conversion shafts.
