    Why don't you just measure your shaft? If you get the diameter of your shaft, then you'll know how big your nut should be. Then just check the thread count. I don't know it's a standard size though, might be some specialized automotive thing. I think you'd be better off just getting one from another 205. I think that the OD of the nut is 1-1/8", either that or 1-5/16". Those are the choices, but I think the latter is for the rear. That won't tell you the shaft and thread size though...

    Measuring your shaft to see how bit the nuts are?

    Wow. Only in this hobby would straight men say that to one another :haha:

    I beleive 1 3/8 is correct, I ended up using a tie rod socket on it to get mine apart.

    Nope. Just went out and checked on a 205 I have apart. The rear shaft is bigger than the front. 1-5/16 in the back, and 1-1/8 in the front. I measured the front shaft, and it looks like it's 3/4" fine thread (16 tpi). You'll want to get a pinch lock of you can.

    Something like on this page, just ignore the nylon insert ones though.

    I tried to find a nut for a 32 spline output shaft, and found out they were 7/8 x 20 tpi. A 7/8 coause thread was like 9 tpi and a fine thread was 14 tpi, so copperstate nuts and bolts did not carry it. Now you didnt say which output you have, 10 or 30 spline, and there COULD be a difference in sizes also. So your best bet might be the dealership.

    Well if he's got a 465/205, the odds are in favor of 10-spline I believe. Should be like mine.

    Very true. And if he modified it, that would explain why he's missing a nut. :haha:
