    My 32 spline input shaft showed up for my NP241 today and I was wondering if anyone has a writeup or break down of this case to help me out before I tear into it.

    Thanks,

    Its pretty easy, just takes some snap wring pliers, wrenches for case bolts, and some rtv silicone to put it back together. Just take it apart slowly, the 27 and 32 spline shafts swap out with each other with no mods, so if you take your time, its basically like taking it apart and immediately putting it back together. You could possibly take some pictures also along the way to help out. EDIT, sorry dont have a writeup, did it a few years ago, it only took me about an hour though so it shouldnt be too hard.

    Regards,
    Remington

    Just make sure you drain it first:). Other than that it is really simple. Just be really carefull when you pry the case as to not crack it. I was a little nervous about cracking it since this one has to replace a cracked 208 :doah:

    (shudder)

    snap rings.

    (shudder)

    I spent what seemed like hours fighting those damn things when I did the 203 and doubler (my '205 was already set up, thankfully) ... poor Stephen listening to me call him "how do I get those damn things out?"

    Ooh. Nightmares. Brave souls, y'all are.
