how can I tell the difference between a 1 piece and 2 piece Mark VIII drive shaft?

Any pictures would be greatly appreciated. I bought one that is supposed to be a one piece 93 shaft, but after closer inspection it looks like it might be a 2 piece. i want to make sure before I pay to have anything done or notify the seller.

The 2 piece is made of 2 pieces fitted together. The area where the fit together is covered by a black rubber piece.

The 1 piece is just that, a 1 piece shaft.

At the rear yoke you will see a small gap if it is 2 piece. True 93 shafts will be solid from front to rear yokes. If I find my pictures I will post them.

The drive shaft I purchased has a small 1/2" or so gap by the rear yoke. I can't tell if it is welded inside the gap or how it is connected. I took some pictures, but I don't have a website to post them.

Here's some pictures of a 93 Mk.8 driveshaft, which were originally posted by another TCCOA member

Thanks for the pics. It's pretty clear to me I have the two piece shaft. It was sold to me as the one piece 93 shaft so I'll have to get my money back. I'm sure it was an honest mistake by the seller as he probably thought it was a 93 shaft.

RICH95XR7, I'll send you a pic so it can be posted so others know what the 2 piece shaft looks like. Thanks for posting it for me.
