    Currently I have a turbo 350 version 205 with the 10 spline front out put. It has the cv yolk where the bolts come in from the back side.... Im not at all interested in putting a 30 or 32 spline out put in it. Are there any other yolk options?? Occording to ORD site you can get a 1350 yolk for it. So i take it that its not a cv yolk?? That would be fine but where do you get one of those and about how much $$$???
    THanks

    *Update*
    Well i got the 27 spline front output in...... When i took it out of the donor case i was like "wow this will be easy" i neglected to notice the donor case was upside down. SO nothing fell down. Well when i went to put it in my truck. NOT FUN... But thanks for all your help guys!
    Also,
    Could a guy take the Rear yolk off of a ford 205 with factory CV and say put it in my K5?? If the splines are the same it should work right?? Just a thought i had today. It may be old news but i dont have the money for a HAD rear CV.

    Neither, but if you have to choose, HAD.

    I wouldn't spend a dime on a driveshaft for a 10 spline output. I'd probably make one in my garage. That way when you destroy the front output shaft you can swap in a 30 or 32 spline output and go with your choice of beefy driveshafts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I agree with Tim, don't waste any money on stuff for the weakest link in your T-case. I have no idea why you would want to keep a 10 spline front output but oh well its not my rig.

    Yes, you just need to make sure that if any of the needle bearings in the rear cover fall into the case that you retrieve all of them. It is an easy swap. To install the rear cover and not drop any of the needle bearings you just need to use lots of grease when putting all the needle bearings back in place in the rear cover plate.

    Re: 205 front output options (10 spline)

    Yep, doesn't take long to do either.
    I snagged a case and shafts from a 78 3/4 ton Ford.
    Mine was free but I wouldn't think it would be much for one.
    I've seen Ford cases for $75 or so in the Nickle ads.

    you will need a special snap ring plier, way easier then screwdrivering the snap ring
    sounds like these guys rear cover bearing was pooched
    the rollers under the rear gear are more of a PITA then the cover in my experience
    not hard
    make sure the shift fork engages the shift clutch on reassembly

    Thanks for your help guys. Dose the same go for the rear also? If i dont have to pull the case out again then I my as well do both the front and rear outputs. At least the front for now....
    Thanks again.

    The rear shaft should be 32 spline and plenty strong enough. Just swap out the front output and call it done. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: 205 front output options (10 spline)

    If the rear output is fixed it is a 32 spline.
    I believe the slip yoke version is 32 as well.
    I used to have it clutterin up the bench, it's long gone now or I could verify that.
    Sice you have a 10 spline F/output I am assuming you have a fixed R/output.
    If you swap out the 10 for the 32 spline front, both front and rear yokes will take the same seal.
    Mine came with 1330 front and rear yokes.
    Beffy enough for me at the moment, the shafts were in great shape and alot bigger than the others. I just took em in and had them shortened. Those were what I was after in the first place, it just so happened that I had to swap out both outputs to make em work. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
