Travis- The shoulder plus minus 1/16 is not a worry. but the length of spline needs only to be 1.2 -more than that and it sticks past the splines end and into the U joint- See the drawing on the U joint to driveshaft. The .098 is taken off to make sure no interference with the inside spider of the u joint.
I suspect others have not machined the length but I would! to make sure I would make the spline part that goes into the U joint 1.2" only as the splined portion of the C50/M50 U joint is only 1.08" long total.
Lots of differing info on this- But I did spent quite a while and triple checked all the dims while doing those drawings.
It ain't getting what you want..It's wanting what u got!
