GP Driveshaft/Propeller Question

Post by OkieMB43 » Sat Feb 13, 2021 3:23 pm

I have a GP7091 propeller/driveshaft that is shorter that the ones for my GPW. Was the GPA shaft the same length as the GPW? The one I have is approximately 17 1/2" from center to center. It's like brand new and doesn't appear to be a bubba job.

Thanks

Ron,
My understanding is that the rear driveshaft on a GPA is the same as a GPW (same part no.). The front drive shaft has a GPA prefix so is not the same as a GP. I cannot measure mine as it is installed and I cannot measure without a lift to get it off the ground.
While the GPA does share some of the same parts as a GP (spring shackles that I recall), most drive train parts are the same a a GPW.
