Amphicar drive shafts

Are there any good write ups out there explaining the different types
of drive shafts and there advantages or disadvantages? I think my 66
has an early type and one of them is bad. I'm going to need to replace
it and would like to get a set of the later ones that I understand are
easier to grease. Any side by side photos out there?

I switched my Amphi to the later style that Hugh sells, not cheap but
much easier to grease and they are NOS. My early style drive shafts
were in decent shape so I didn't send them back for the core $.

If your Amphi has the smaller tunnels like mine it is a tight fit
with the later style drive shafts as the grease fitting gets very
close to rubbing the tunnel, but doesn't. Give Hugh a call as he
knows all the details between the different shafts that were made.
