    Do you sell a kit to convert a slip yoke 205 to a fixed yoke. If not who does and at what cost$$$?

    I just did a slip to fixed conversion on a 205. The output shaft, yoke and new housing (plus seals) is about all you need. I got my shaft from 4xheaven. They no longer make the shaft so about all you'll be able to find is a used one.

    Wheels,

    Do you know what the huge nut size is at the rear output yoke?? I'm going to be doing the same eventually, but I don't have any sockets to fit over that nut. Let me know what size it is, or how you got it off. Thanks

    The nut on my 205 is 1-5/16" I dont know if they are all the same or not.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    You could probably scrounge up a divorced or otherwise less desirable 205 for the price of a kit to swap the outputs. We're working on getting an adequate pile of 205's to start selling components, but at this point, we need all the parts to put them back together.

    I don't know the details, but the 208 can be swapped to a solid yoke, but you have to use the parts from a ford or dodge 208, since they came with fixed yoke.
    Thanks

    ps, all seem to be 1 5/16. I had to trim a nut down to a smaller size to go into my CV yoke, the socket wouldn't fit in the hole.
