Default Rear axle spline count, Ford 8:8

So i switched my dana 35 in the rear to a Ford 8:8, Just to get it up and running with my current drive shaft i want to switch out the u joint connector from the dana 35 to the ford 8:8. The ford 8:8 has the flat/round flange. Is it the same sline count? does anyone know if this will work or do i have to go find another u joint type, What is the spline count on this?

Typical way to address this is just to buy the a 1310 compainion flange. Google for the part numbers. I bought mine at napa for $24 bucks a few years ago. No reason to mess with swapping it out for a yoke.

Even if it was the same spline count as the 35, the pinion is not the same diameter. You need to either buy this:

or this:
