I am running a type 4 in my 718 project. With the 901 sideshift transaxle the axles need to be shortened by 2.5 inches. Does anyone have experience doing this ???. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated. Took them to a local machinist(I'm in Ontario Canada) and the guy didn't say it can't be done, just not by him. My theory was to just have the length taken out of the shaft, circle weld or sleeve the thing and be done with it. Yes, No ??
