    I`m planning right now and I went to Northwestfab.com and found NP 203 32 spline input for 2 prices. One price with a new input seal and bearing and the other without one. I have a 27 spline 203 lying around and am planning for a doubler anyways so I may swap that in before a 205 swap. I was wondering if the 27 spline input seal and bearing is in good shape, can I use that with the 32 spline input? And I`ve heard everywhere that a 205 needs machining work to fit a 32 spline input in due to a larger bearing. How much needs done and do I just take it to a local machine shop and tell them what to do? How much does that usually cost?

    The 32 spline is the "big bore" case, your 27 spline seal etc. won't work with a 32 spline input. Take it to a machine shop and tell them you need it bored out to however big the 32 spline input is (I don't know) the machining fee shouldn't be outrageous, it's not a real big job.

    I paid $100 to have my case machined to accept the bigger bearing. Ive heard of peole paying $175.
