    a few Key changes
    the position of the clutch linkage
    it extits the cab in a different position from 1st and 2nd gen
    the bell hosing is castand only a 1/2 circle so they tend to crack easyer '
    the 205 front out put is only 10 spline subject to spline twist as well as the drive coupler in the adapter
    as
    position of the cross mnember changes as do both drive shafts and a different style front yoke so a different front shaft will be needed as as well as the back
    the 1st gen is a couple inches shorter
    so ya cantr even use there shafts withj out chyanging lengths
    well thats a small list
    for ya to think about
    im sure outhers will add to it
    R
    the ole line all that glitters is not gold comes to my mind
