    I have a silly question. Specifically, if the vertical centerline of the input shaft is 0 degrees, what down angle to the right (passenger side) does a stock GM 205 set?

    I am exploring some options using the 205. Trying to see where I may run into issues before they come up.

    if you have a 205, why don't you measure your own? The it'd be especially easy with a "figure 8" bolt pattern one... the adapter is oriented vertically, the centerline of the figure 8 will show you how much its "rotated" in stock position...

    I am sorry, I left out that detail. I do not have one of my own to look at. At least not yet. That is also one of the reasons I am asking.

    The front output shaft is 5.9" vertically below the input shaft centerline on a GM fig 8 case.
