    You need to swap the output shaft, the seal retainer and seal (put a new one in while your at it, CR#21211) and you'll need a fixed yoke. Everything else including the case iron tailhousing and spedometer components will swap directly over.

    If I understand you have the slip yoke type now and are getting a fixed yoke T/C for parts.

    If that is the case it only takes a few minutes to swap them out.
    Just unbolt the rear bearing housing, should be 8 bolts.
    Pull the whole assy out and catch all the needle bearings.
    Install all of the needle bearings in the fixed housing(use grease to hold them in place) and install the housing and bolt it back down.
    Pretty much just like that.

    It's pretty easy.
    I have pics in my sig of the differences. I used to have a write-up on it but can't seem to find it anymore (did anyone save it)? I am planning on writing a more in depth 205 rebuild article in January and hopefully have it posted here. If someone has a copy of my original article (mine was lost in a hard drive crash), I will include the fixed yoke conversion in the article as well.

    You can do it in the rig, but it's easier on a bench where you can tilt the case toward it's back to catch the falling needle bearings.
