    preventable rear suspension failure

    http://www.steelsoldiers.com/upload/M35/TM9-2320-209-34P.pdf . Fig. 127 shows the later (bushing)bearing style. And this is the early (tapered roller)bearing style, from the parts book ORD 9 SNL G-742 (Jan1955): Same size as the spindle nuts: 3", 8-sided.

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    (y)Case resolved, then - and I can sleep again!:giggle:

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    Ah... that's most probably the cause...! At least it proves that the newer jackshaft is capable of extending that much - without ripping off its slip-joint seal. If you refer to what bolts to the TC, those two styles are interchangeable and don't affect its position. See this thread, also...

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    Not the case. It would take much more than that to make our transmissions one inch shorter. Also, the pics in post #6 clearly show a transmission with all stock parts. So my question remains open, still: what exactly was changed in the later-generation A2s to require- or allow a longer...

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    OK, so it seems that that later-model propeller shaft does extend enough to solve the OP's problem. Really wondering now where that 1"-difference originates (?) Since both trucks should have the very same engine- and transfer case mounting brackets, at the same relative positions, respectively...

    Which 2wd Steering box for Crossover Steering?

    Those pics you posted show a typical Saginaw manual steering gear. I'm sure that's not what you want.

    HEMTT wheels on FMTV?

    So do wheels with less backspace. Installing a HEMTT wheel would be like running a 2-1/2" spacer behind the original wheel.

    spicer 3053a transmission questions.

    Sure... but not at the same rpms! They say there is no substitute for one's own experience.... It only takes a couple of hours to replace a transmission in a Deuce, so go ahead and try it out. Oh, and leave the floor tunnel cover removed and all tools handy - because you might want to go...

    spicer 3053a transmission questions.

    Exactly. I have done it - and promptly switched back to the 3052... (Wow, just realised: that was 25 years ago! No SS and no TMs at that time...)

    Fuel pump push rod

    Not exactly...

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    6" (or 11" between flanges), fully collapsed. Extends about 1-1/8"

    Fuel pump push rod

    Not too common - but they do break in two even without doing stupid things... Post#6 seems to confirm it. Other threads about the same topic: https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/anyone-have-a-fuel-pump-push-rod-break-in-half.130033/...

    Too Many Deuces?

    It seems that that number (of trucks) most often is wife-depending, or...? :giggle:
