    Did lots of reading and got the dimensions for grinding but... in alot of articles and threads the word rail comes in plural and non-plural form so is it one rail or both that get ground and if one which one?

    I'm guessing it is one rail to be ground and the nearest to your input shaft....

    Sorry.. I must have a thick head but it shows the rail for the front being pulled for ginding and I've read the one nearest to the input shaft is the one required for grinding!?!?

    Read!!! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It says the one nearest to the input is the one you grind. Pictures even confirm that. I can confirm it cause I've already done this mod. Works like a charm.

    Ahh.... #2 sez the info we speak of and I thank you.
    But pic #4 may look deceiving as the 205 they are using has a fixed yolk for an input, so it must be a devorced unit!

    Waxer, I appreciate your reply and the info provided /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    No problem, yeah it's a divorced unit they have pictured so it can throw people off a bit. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif


    If you need any more help feel free to PM me. As I said, I followed the directions on this article to the T and it worked out great.
