Depends on what 400 you have.

There are 2 different car size tailshafts both same spline but the thickness is different.

So the yoke thickness can be different as well.

I do believe splicer makes a seal so that you can use the smaller 400 car yoke in the larger hole tailshaft though

Best to grab the yoke that was in the 400 if you can
1980 Malibu BBC T-56 9"
1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass.
