    All ford 205's are the same... Just swap out the 31 spline input with a 32.

    Also need an adaptor or redrill the t-case. The holes are close, but don't quite line up. MEK5 let me borrow his adaptor, it's bolted together, but haven't used it yet. Weekends are too far away.....least the front is done....

    31 spline and 32 spline use the same bearing, so no boring to fit a 32 spline in a ford tcase.

    im not sure how far the pattern is off, but a np208 adapter (or gm round 205 adapter) then redrill the ford 205 case to fit the 208/205 adapter.

    unless you wanna spend $$$ on a AA adapter.

    I did that to mine, just swapped inputs. I used a 208/241 adaptor. You could probly redrill the holes and be OK. As for the VSS, get the reluctor ring from the stealership, and the VSS sensor/pickup whatever yah call it from the junkyard, they are $100 new. Drill and tap the housing, need to clearance the inside for the reluctor ring to fit, IIRC hits oiling stuff.

    What are you going to do for a shifter?? The chevy adapter has the shifter boss on the PS and the Ford is on the DS.
