Sorry for the confusion Bob.
The outer 1 3/4" support shaft and the 3/4" inner shaft were not cut. The inner shaft was removed only to install new BMW nylon shaft bearings and to line drill the new splined shaft to the existing shaft cross-bolt holes.
The 3 ft splined rod shaft I actually cut down to approx 20" simply because it would not slide fully up the hollow 3/4" inner shaft. It started binding and I didn't want to "Malletize" it into place. I really only needed it to be around 20" or so to extend past the lower (engine compartment) bearing support.
