    Currently there is no low gear set for a 205 on the market. If you search here for "LoMax" you will find a thread about 3:1 gears that are in developement literally for years.

    You only options for additional reduction and a 205 are Doubler, KluneV or Atlas.

    nice bearing retainers. For anyone wondering, a guy over on pirate machines those. They are definitely nice. Two best upgrades you can do to a 205... 32 spline front output and twin-stick.

    Im new here to this forum. I have some questions about my 205 in my 76 K15. Im having problems with the front output leaking. I changed all seals and gaskets on my t-case and trans (SM465), front and rear end

    The yoke I have had real bad seal grooves in it. I put a speedy sleeve on it. My question is when I put the new oil seal in the retainer I know the rubber side is out. My question is does it set in the retainer all the way down or does it sit flush to the face side??

    Any info would be super. I put on the sppedy sleeve, new seal (only put in flush to the front, not pushed all the way in to the stops. Bolted it all back up still leaking.

    Any thought guys.

    If the yoke is as bad as you say then just get a new yoke. Could be a great time to upgrade :cool1:
