ive done drums to 7.5's... best and safest thing to do is use all of the new parts u got... as i think the older driveshafts are shorter and i think the splines are slighty different too.

managed to get drive shaft off both hubs today and No you can't just change them over, i will have to get the pot which goes into the gearbox aswell if i am going to fit them, decided to order 2 new drive flanges for now, will work on changing them over at a later date..

problem solved
