The 4-speed driveshaft has a sliding yoke on the trans end. It has a collar
which fits over the outside of the trans rear housing (without making
contact), and a shaft which fits into the rear housing of the trans through
an oil seal and onto the splined main shaft. There is a U-joint immediately
following the yoke, and a second joint at the differential.
The Nissan parts manual shows a bolted yoke at both ends of the 5-speed
driveshaft, and two U-joints, which is what I sort of recall from the 2L I
had 20-odd years ago. It also shows some sort of sliding mechanism behind
the front U-joint. The parts book refers to this as a "stub yoke". But,
the Nissan manual does not show how the bolted yoke connects to the trans
main shaft, so I can't really say for sure.
