Maybe some specs on what you are looking for?

how many splines? Internal or external? Tube size, material, and use? (making a play-doh fun factory?)

Not making a fun factory.

Actually I need a tube, with internal splines to match the external splines on the rear CV shaft of a 86 Subaru. Then We are going to take a hub from a ATV (quad) and cut the center splined part out and press the new splined tube part into the ATV hub and then weld it in.
