Ok, Question

Seems I recall (dredging up from deep in the archives of Yee Ol brain)
that one had to 'phase' the drive shaft install. With a drive-shaft
with a ujoint on both ends it was possible (maybe like 50% chance) of
getting the drive-shaft 'out of phase'. As simple as it seems putting
the thing in place, you still had a chance of making it work, just not
as well as it could. If this is the case, would this be a similar
problem with the B&T setup??

And secondly, if you happened to get it in but 'wrong' would that be 
felt in driveline oscillation? Possibly mannyfeasted as a little clunky
at certian speed ranges??
