    i would say good, i have 2 ten spline outputs and they are both in rough shape.
    thinking it is from lack of lube to the coupler and they grind the output shaft

    The 10 spline 465's have a reputation for wearing out at the output end of things...so yes the 32 spline version is more desirable.

    So the '85 would have the 32 splines?

    Yes, as Rene said, 81 and up are 32 spline whether hooked to a 208 or 205 (1 tons only)
