The 71B 5 speed was available since '77. Millions made and with different front cases so they fit L, Z, SD, LD and CA engines. 

 

You have two possible lengths 26" and 31.5". All these below are 31.5" except possibly one from a 720 gas engine. Even if you have a shorter one you can swap a longer one in and shorten the driveshaft. All you may need to do is swap your Z series front case on.

 

L series...

'77-'79 620 truck

'78-'80 810

'81-'84 Maxima

'77-'78 280z

'79-'83 non turbo 280zx

 

Z series...

'81-'86.5 720 gas engines

'80-'83 S110 200sx

'83-'86.5 S12 200sx

 

LD series...

'78-'80 810

'81-'84 Maxima

 

SD series...

'80-'86.5 720

 

Then there are the 71C from the D21 Hardbody that bolt right up and need only a driveshaft mod.

Anything is only as strong as it's weakest point.
