I noticed the front shaft on the 78 (NP203) is toast (the fine splines are almost stripped). I got a quote of $175 to respline it (coarse spline) with new Spicer parts and u-joint (CV look OK?). Question is I have a couple of good spares from NP205 equipped rigs ("pack-ratting" has some advantages /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif ) that should fit, but not sure if the flanges (T-case end) are compatable. I could unbolt the one in there now and try inserting a 205 one, but that's trial by error (not that I haven't used that method /forums/images/icons/blush.gif ). Anyone know, searching turned up a ton of posts that don't address the issue?
