BTW, if anyone knows what the heck that long shaft is too, let me know.... it's NOS, but I have no clue...... PN is 7340691
That is 1/2 of the wheel shaft or half shaft that go's from the diff to the wheel. :roll:

DUH!!! Guys, I would not post a picture of a typical M151 long axle shaft and ask what it if for!!!! Take a look at the Universal joint. it is the same type as on the front and rear drive shafts. It is not the same as on the M151 series rear axle....... It is an NOS part... not something someone has put the wrong U-joint on. Any ideas?

The very early straight 151 used that type of joint on the wheel end of the rear axle shaft. I think that may be what Dan is talking about. How long is it? Is it about the length of a axle half shaft that would go out to the wheel?

So it looks like you have a very rare axle shaft for an early straight 151.

You might want to talk to Vin if you have that type of axle.
