    I can get one for a song out of a 78 or 79 F250. I already have a round pattern GM 205 sitting in my garage that is a slip yoke rear output. Can I get the Ford one and swap the fixed rear output in my GM case? Also will the Ford one have a front output in 32 spline?

    I did that with my old K5.
    The rear output will bolt up but it is for a Ford application. You will need to reuse the rear bearing housing from the GM case.
    Ford cases are clocked different and while the rear housings are the same on the outside they are not on the inside.
    I can't remember if it was the oil supply or drain hole that doesn't line up with the GM case, but I seem to remember it being the oil feed hole.
    Once you have it off and compare them you'll see what I mean.

    You basicly end up just using the shaft and yoke. The rear housing pieces need to stay the gm pieces.
