    it would be much easier in a vertical mill using and adjustable boring head . you will have to get the actual bearing you will be using and measure it with a micrometer and then bore the case to that measurement , or risk it like i am going to try and get a bearing that will fit both without being maching ,I have NOT tested this yet so i cannot say whethere the slightky thinner bearing is up to the task . i dont see why it wouldnt tho . -Andy

    The parts you need are available through ORD for $200. It includes a new input gear with the short 32 spline input, bearing, and gasket and seal set. You will need to completely tear down your 205 to machine the case. The bearing that the input shaft rides in is larger, there fore that is the "hole" that needs to be machined. If you do it yourself, you need to make sure you don't move the centerline of the input. If you carry it to a local machine shop like I did, I would make sure to remind them not to change the centerline. The new bearing needs to be a tight slip fit into the new hole. It is a failry simple process because there are no retainig clip grooves or ridges to have to worry about, just a clean hole. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    What MR.CHEVY4X4 said! Find a competent machine shop and give them the case and correct bearing. It is a simple job to do.

    As for the thinner bearing, I have 2 friends that have done it this way. Neither truck has had any problems with the different bearing, one of them is abused AND driven long distances. You can go to an industrial bearing parts house, like Motion Industries, to get the bearing. Give them the original bearing (for the outer diameter) and the new input shaft (for the bearing inner diameter) and ask them to help you find a bearing that will work.

    We usually charge $70.00 assuming we get a CLEAN case to work on. If it's dirty it's usually $90.00. For that we do tap all the holes to make sure they're OK and check a couple places that sometimes crack and give it a general inspection. It's usually cheaper to find someone local, especially with the shipping cost for a 45# case.
    We've been trying to keep some exchange cases in stock but we're out at this point, we'd machine yours if you sent it.
