    did you get some side to side angle, like the 205 output is off the center line of the front axle pinion? Just seeing if what I have is normal since the output would be rotated in a radius. If that makes sence /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Thanks,

    You might PM Mudzer.
    He runs an inverted 203 and a 205 clocked flat.

    As theBigdaddyof2 said, Mine is clocked flat. There is more of an angle [side to side] than before, but not enough to give me too many problems. My major issue was in the angle going down to the yoke on my 60. It is a little severe, in fact I still have the junk Saginaw CV up front and it has been majorly modified to have more droop. Still, when I am wheeling at speed in the snow, it makes a bunch of noise. Since I haven't won that High Angle Driveline yet, I decided I am building my own CV shaft with sufficient angle for our applications. You take a 1310 CV shaft and disassemble the CV. Discard the center pivot and the Center "H Casting". Purchase a 1330 Center "H casting" and center pivot as well as 1310 to 1330 conversion u-joints. With some slight clearancing you can have a shaft that will operate at a fairly good angle. I then re-tubed the shaft for the length I needed.

    I'll crawl under mine this weekend and snap some pics of the shaft angles.
