    As I understand a 205 from a 350 will not work. To change the 205 over to a 400 style 205, the shaft needs to be changed. Is this just a shaft swap or does it require some machining to the t-case also?

    Thanks

    Yes. You need a new shaft, bearing, seal and machine the case for the larger bearing. I'm doing that this weekend to my 205's. ORD has all the stuff needed. I found it locally. Not real cheap, but finding a TH400 205 is a little more difficult and it will be close to the same price if not a little less.
    Does this help?

    Have new shaft, bearing, and sanp ring. Working on disassembly. After that I have a friend that will machine the case for me. Not sure what a shop would charge.
    One thing I did notice was the price of the shaft wasn't to bad, but the bearing was $47 and I had quotes as high as $70. What really got me was the snap ring that hold the bearing on the shaft. It was $7.50 for one snap ring plus tax and shipping.

    ORD has them for $200 with the gear, bearing, seal, and gasket. I paid $117 for the gear and $46 for the bearing.

    Thanks, but I found a t-case that was the correct one. Just need to swap in my non-slip yoke.

    Thanks

    rocnwilly got a decent deal, ours at $200 would add a $37.00 205 seal and gasket kit so we're not too far off his good deal.
    That's all you need.
