    I have a 1969 Skylark custom 350/4, I installed the drive shaft and the nuts on the u-joint bolts are even with the end of the strap threads, not enough space to install the lock washer. I've purchase three different u-joint bolts however, they are all the same size. The last set was Moog #329-10. It fits in great however, it doesn't seem to be long enough either. The cup of the universal joints are 1 1/8", I also measured the differential flange and got 3 5/8" width & 1" tall. Any recommendations

    Check to see that the u-joint cups are set fully into the differential flange pockets, if they are fully seated in the pockets, I would use the extra strong Locktite thread locker.
