you need to go to a tailshaft builders as they cut the shaft at the point of weld and shorten the tube to your required length and reweld the shaft and also re-balance it

Thanks Belair: but here's my prob. I have a BOP 350 Tranny with a short tail. I wanting to put it in a 350 Chevy Tranny with a long tail. In other words just swap them. Do I have to go into the transmission and gut it to do this.

Make a plate that elongates the tailhousing mounting point on the tranny crossmember, then shorten your driveshaft. That might be easier than pulling 2 trannys apart.

You have to change out put shaft which means you have to remove all the clutch packs and shafts. By time you do all that you could get a core from a bone yard and have it rebuilt
