    I just did a 465/205 swap in my k5 and i orderd a HAD drive shaft from jesse for the rear. Now i have a choice with the front driveshaft. My 205 has a 10 spline front output and i would have to convert it to 30 or 32 to accept the flat flanged style yoke to fit the drive shaft i already have. Or should i leave it 10 spline and just order a new shaft and yoke from HAD?:confused: Don't have the $$$ for both.

    I prefer the flat flange style. If you can find a flat flange style t case to part out. I think that would be the cheapest route, just a little more labor intensive.

    32 spline on the front with the flange.

    yes, you definitely want the 32 spline front output. If you can't find parts to do it cheap, see if you can't track down a ford np205 on craiglist. I have bought 2 of them, just for parts, for like $50 each. Not bad. :) ALL married ford np205s have 32 spline front outputs... and a 31-spline input if you want to do a doubler later.

    I found a slip yoke 205 for 2 hundred bucks. It has a 30 spline output and i think it has a 27 spline input for a 350or 400? Think its worthit or not. There is also a 78 or 79 bronco that has a 205 in it which one do you think would be better.

    slip yoke 205? no way... one of the 205s best features is that it isn't slip yoke (well, 95% of them anyway). The Broncos 205 will be drivers side drop. If its married (dunno fords really) then it would be useful for the 32-spline front output parts and thats aboot it.

    Yea makes no sense to me neither. Do you think he's asking to much for it. The reason i ask is because to get a just an output shaft and a yoke i'm looking at about $250. And at least if i had that case i could eliminate the slip yoke and start working towards a doubler.

    so im not trying to hijack here but im doing a 465/205 swap also i have a front shaft of a 350/205...i have not try to size them up yet (last thing on my mind) but will the shaft of the 350 work on the 465...both transfer cases were 205,the rear shafts were diffrent (slip yoke on the 350,fixed on the 465) but the front shouldnt matter right???
