    I don't think so. The 205 that had the slip was a 400 shaft, Which is usually bigger than the 208's. Atleast with the one's I've had.

    I had an 84 K30 with the stock slip-yoke 205 (with a TH400), and it was directly interchangeable with the slip yoke that came stock in my 86 K10 with a 208(and SM465). I was going to swap the driveshafts when I rolled the K30, but the shaft was a bit long.

    It is the stock slip and CV joint....but the shaft was cut to length with the correct yoke on the rear end side.

    '73 uses a Spicer (yoke) front output while '91 uses a Saganaw (plate)

    Is it the stock 205 from the 73? I thought slip yoke 205's were only made in 84...
