    What do I need to change to clock my 205?

    The only way to do this right is to clock the 205 relative to the factory adapter so you'll need some kind of clocking plate which will cost you spline engagement. We might be able to mill your alum. plate a bit thinner to give some engagement back, it's been a while since I looked at one but it seems like they're pretty thick.

    The other way to go is to re-drill the alum. adapter with the rotated bolt pattern then rebuild the crossmember to work with the rotated foot. Or cut the foot off and build another mounting foot somehow.

    Either way is a pretty good amount of work.

    Stephen he said "GEN ONE" wouldn't you have to cut the steel tube in the center and rotate the 205 plate X degrees? Isn't a gen 1 doubler all steel? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Gen1 is the original version with the factory adapter at the front of the 205. So the order was:
    203/alum plate/205 adapter/205. We eliminated the factory adapter with the GEN2. The first GEN2 adapters were steel, then we switched to the billet alum. That's probably where the confusion lies.

    Oh I see now, I thought The Gen 2.mod.0 was the Gen 1. I see the light Dr watson, I see. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
