1976 is size the split i think it is a easy fix first you need to tell use why it does note fit is the rag joint to big or to small then we can tell what you need

my guess is that the rag joint is to big in that case a rag joint from a pre 76 nova or camoro should work fine

No when i try to line up thr teeth n put it in its too small, even after taking off the bolt that clamps the joint to the shaft is too small.

Not really, but if the coupler you have now does not fit, then you need the larger size. Only 2 to choose from.
If you have some 12 point sockets, see which one will fit over the splined shaft. That should indicate if it is 3/4" or 13/16".
