    on a 14 bolt sf will the axle need to be machined like he says on his website or is that just for the ff. just making sure if i need to do the milling on a semifloater.

    If you have a semi floater, why not just get some 6 lug axleshafts for it?

    No machining necessary. The reason it's needed on the 14 bolt FF is because the 6 lug wheels that you'll be putting on the spacer don't have an opening large enough to fit over the large hub. By putting the spacer on the 14 bolt SF, you'll for sure be over the "lip" that sticks out that would possibly pose a problem.
