How much back lash or play is acceptable between the rear wheel and the drive shaft.

Thanks for any help in advance,

Very little. I'd say less than a quarter of an inch. Hopefully Pinionhead will chime in...he's the expert on this. If you have 1/2" or more 'slop', you are looking at some repair or adjustment.

On second thought, when rotating a rear wheel and looking at the driveshaft, about 1-2 inches of wheel movement before the driveshaft turns is pretty much normal.
