would it be wrong to cut up a 10spline 203 input gear?

    check www.offroaddesign.com I think Stephen has some stuff up about this. Might also hit the ORD form and ask or do a search. might be information posted there. But those 10 spline inputs are a hard find. Might want to think real hard if cutting it is the way you want to go.

    I will either cut it or sell it.
    I doubt anyone would care if I cut up a 10 spline 205 input gear, I havent seen any good 10 spline 465 output shafts and I will need at least 1 one but more likely 2 of them.

    203 or 205? The subject line says 203 but your last post says 205? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    I have both, the female 203 is rare so am debating destroying it for an experiment, the male 205 is common and I could go that way.
    I would prefer to find something that would match a 2wdr 465 shaft though.
    any opinions on parting the splined part off a yoke and welding that to the input gear?
    would have to find a bearing to fit, most likely boring the case....

    I guess I could just chop up a coupler and have it welded directly to the input gear rather then destroying a are piece

    MJ couplers are cheap compared to the imput shaft. Also a good machine shop should be able to broach the splines you need in a part you made.

    i wish i knew how to tell a good machine shop from a lousy one LOL
    I know whatcha meant though.
    any machinist should be able to cut down shafts for a press fit but broaching is special I think

    Ask a engine shop you trust who they'd use to broach some splines. Or look for someone that does NAS or MilSpec work. Till he drank himself out of bussiness I knew someone that did outside work for Nasa. He was real good when sober and better than most when drunk. I had a stainless fire pit in the backyard that was part of an antenna for the space shuttle. They had made extra parts that weren't needed and still got paid for. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    just did some quick comparos
    the coupler idea is a HIT!
    coupler OD smaller then 465 front bearing ID so no 465 case mods
    just have to carve bearing retainer to fit and mount seal
    how short should I go!!!!!!!
    3 parts
    1- weld cut down coupler to cut down input gear
    2- create adapter plate (which could/should replace 465 bearing retainer?)
    3- bearing retainers mods

    no rare parts must die

    Have a new coupler made out of a larger piece of metal as to the thread on here about people blowing their course sline couplers up. But if you start with a larger OD and splined to stock specs maybe it'd hold up better. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
