AOD Driveshaft and Pedal Assembly

As some of you advised me, I'm having a little trouble finding the parts I need for my 5sp install in my '86 Cougar.  I need an AOD driveshaft to go behind my T5.  My car came with the C5 trans, so my driveshaft is too long.  Hoping I can find one instead of cutting mine down.  I don't know if there's a length difference between AOD shafts from 3.8's and 5.0's??  Haystack told me an AOD shaft should go right in without having to cut it.

Also, can't seem to find a clutch pedal assembly from a Foxbody Mustang.  Had one located but didn't get it fast enough and he sold the whole car.  I thought Foxbody 'stangs were still everywhere, but my point of reference may be off slightly.

If anybody has either of these or can point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Thanks.

Sorry, I don't know if my sig shows my location or even remember if I ever set up a sig.  I'm in Madisonville, KY  42431.  Thanks again.

fox stangs really arent everywhere anymore. go to car-part.com look up something common or whatever then give the junkyard a call and see if they'll pull and ship it for you. 99% chance they will

Well, I found one of my items.  Plan to go tomorrow to get the clutch pedal assembly; $50 and includes an adjustable quadrant (not exactly sure what that means or if I'm saying it right, but I guess I'll learn soon).  Now I just need the 3.8 AOD driveshaft.  Somebody holler if you have one.  Thanks.

Could just get a local driveline shop to cut yours down or make a new one.

If you have to cut a shaft up, consider what others here have done.  Get a aluminum shaft out of the Crown Vics copcars at junkyard.  Lighter and less vibration.  I think you have to reuse the snout of the old shaft.

I had a local driveline shop make a 3.5" diameter aluminum driveshaft for my Thunderbird. Cost was $350. $75 of that was having them remove the old driveshaft and put the new one in. Worth it to me as I didn't have to lay under the car and dick around removing the driveshaft. Brought them the car and 4 hours later it came out with a new driveshaft.
