According to Specter, there were four types of Birfield joints used 

    	Date		Brakes	Size (across flats?)
	68 - 11/72	drum	3.260"		
	11/72 - 9/75	drum	3.318"
	9/75 - 12/78	disc	?
	1/79 - 1/90	disc	bigger than drum*

* I checked with a dial caliper when I did my conversion and was
     seeing how much I had to grind off the axle housing, but neglected 
    to write down the numbers.
