    Ok, I am putting the final pcs back on my 205. The last thing I was putting back on were the two short bolt the retain the springs on the small bearings that go in the top of the case and rest on the shift rails. When i was putting on the last bolt i snapped it like an idiot. :doah: :mad: I was able to hammer an allen wrench into it hollow shaft that was theaded in and back them out that way. However i still need to replace this bolt that is hollow and the springs rest in. I can't find it at any autoshop place. I was thinking about finding a bolt the same size and drilling out the middle with a drill press. Anyone know where i can find this bolt or should i just drill it out?:confused: Sorry for the length run on, just want to finish this thing. Also it appears to shift and operate flawlessly, cant wait to put it on truck.

    Thanks guys

    PM 1-tonmudder on here, he's got a bunch of 205 parts, and I'm sure he has these. If you have no luck, let me know, as I have a couple 205 parts cases, and can dig one up for you.
