on the driveshaft, they make what is called a conversion u joint, the cross and cups are longer, or bigger on one side than the other, you will; need to measure your ih shaft and what goes in the chevy trans, sometimes you cant get one of these in the correct dimensions,it will take a auto parts man who knows his stuff, if that doesn't work a driveshaft shop can fab something that will make the 2 pieces of driveshaft work for you,as with any swap prepare to have to either lengthen or shorten the shaft to make it work with the new engine and trans if you have to go that way you will need to tell them exactly how long the unit needs to be, dont forget to allow for the slip yoke to move
