    Ive got a 700r4 goin to a NP205 with the figure 8 adapter along with a spacer and a splined collar. I noticed that my output shaft on the 700r4 is a tad too long (1/16" gap between spacer and tranny) for it all to slip together. I dont want to change the output shaft, so i was thinking i could cut off a small peice or grind it off. How much should i remove, just the 1/16" or do i need to remove more? Thanks in advance.

    Stupid question, but are you sure you have the right adapter? There is definitely a specific adapter that should fit. I could be wrong though.

    If you were to cut off the shaft I would be careful so that you don't get it to hot and burn up the tranny output seal. Maybe just cut a little bit at a time.

    yeah, I have a 700-205 combo with a 350-to-205 adapter + spacer. You need to trim the shaft just a bit. 1/8? would be plenty. Its not a big deal, and you don't have to remove the shaft from the tranny to do it.
