Can someone take a look at my drive shaft insertion? Tough to take a picture, but if you can make out the grime on the driveshaft I am a couple of mm away from where it sat in the stock engine...

How deep is the bearing surface? If it is deep enough to keep the tip of the driveshaft fully supported you could go in a little deeper. From the picture it looks like it could go in a tenth or two.

That's a good question. I should be able to get a measurement on that.

Bearing looks to measure at 10mm. I've got 9mm of penetration.

if i remember well u should be a more than the bearing to secure the pilot is more than inside of the bearing ... we need a second input but im pretty sure the hole is more than 20mm deep

I ended up going in all the way to the start of the taper. That way you have full support of the bearing.So you can go a little more.

Go with the 14mm deep bearing if you've made sure the rear coupler is installed correctly.

Where can I get that Rob?  The installed one came from Kent in the kit I purchased. Do you think the few mm difference will result in catastrophic failure the way it is now?

If you are at an install point where you can easily change it, then fine but not necessary and wouldnt worry about cat failure. The bearing could wear out a little sooner but it looks like its in far enough.
Search 15x35x14 bearing.

Thanks for the quick reply, appreciate your help as always. By the way, the 996 GT3 brake adapter kit you made for me has been great on track the last couple of years!
