    The shaft, or the yoke itself?

    The Yokes will swap, they are the same spline size and count, as well as ground hub diameter.

    If you mean can you convert a slip yoke 205 to a fixed using NP203 part, no it will not work. The internals of a NP203 are far far different than what is required to do that swap.

    It 1 5/16" if you didn't already know. I bought a craftsman one but the socket walls were too thick to get into the yoke, I ended up picking up a cheapo made in india one that had thinner walls, it worked fine, at about half the cost of the Craftsman.
