I have finally got my 2PC Floating Trans Shafts ready. These are made under license from Les Schubert. "Star" is made from his drawings and the shaft is made from Ford drawings. Watch for my ad in the classified page. Only for sale in the US. Thanks, Dan.

Beautiful work. Can you explain their function?

Shaft "floats", allowing for a small amount of misalignment on the rear main. Helps to save your crankshaft. Search the older forums for discussion of these. Dan

It's basically a universal joint, with very limited angular range but requiring no extra space. In my opinion it's a really great idea, and since I, just like Steve Jelf, am currently in the process of assembling my transmission, I would like very much to know when they will be available and how much they will cost.

What Dan says is all true. There are at least a dozen of these that have been in service for over 5 years.
They are no substitute for a straight oil pan but I developed this in response to Paul Vitko's research on the amount of pan deflection under ordinary conditions
Nice work Dan

That has got to be one of the best aftermarket items ever made for the model T.
Les showed me one of those when he was in Ca, a few years ago.
The fit of the two parts appeared perfect.
It is one more thing to insure long life and more trouble free touring for the T.
Would seem very necessary when using an aluminum Warford hanging on the back of the trans with no mounts to help support it.

I've got one in my touring, another to put in another engine. Glad they're being made again. I'm very happy with mine. How well does it work? I've got a 4 dip pan on a 23 engine, drive it hard and often,, and haven't broken a crank yet. :-)
