Does anyone make a flat style yoke that is 10 spline for the front output shaft on a 205?
Not that i'm aware of. The 32 spline front conversion will net you the most options for yokes. The output shaft swap is easy.
How easy is it to do? Do you have to do a complete teardown of the tcase?
All you need to do is remove all the bolts on the back cover plate and pull the shaft assembly out. I can't recall but i think the gear needs to be swapped over then reinstall. The only real issue is making sure that all the needle bearings don't fall out of the cover plate.
bigger the splines count the bigger the shaft dia on the 205s. so you would only be making a weak link weaker.
Do you mind explaining what you mean.
10 spline = weak
30 spine = better
32 spline = best
so like i stated the bigger the spline count the better. so flat flange on 10 spline just be a weak link in the long run.
Well what you said here leads to believe that going to a larger spline count and larger diameter shaft makes it weak. I've re-read this about 6 times now and i get the same thinking everytime.
I agree with he smaller spline count and diameter being a weak link. More than a weak link though is the inability to choose different yokes configurations.
he asked ( Does anyone make a flat style yoke that is 10 spline for the front output shaft on a 205? )
so i said ( bigger the splines count the bigger the shaft dia on the 205s.
so you would only be making a weak link weaker. )
so if you read his question then read my response. it will make sense.
so if it dont make sense dont read it .
You obviously have a problem with me and you and i both know why. I was only asking for an explanation of what you meant since it made no sense to me after reading it 6 times. I was not being a smart ass and trying to start any crap either. Oh well, whatever.
You never even answered the guys question let alone made any sense in what you said.
This makes the most sense and would have been the appropiate answer the first time.
Wow this is fun.
Who all makes the conversion for the 32 splines?
Ya need to get a FORD NP205 to get the parts for the 32 spline swap
if i have a problem i try and do it threw pms. not in public to trash others posts. so if you dont like me or thinks i post add me to your ignore block section so you dont have to read my crap.
Are you sure? That sure does not sound right.
When I put a new clutch in my 77 Jimmy last year I swapped out it's 205 with no sidemount bolt holes for an earlier 205 case that had side mount bolt holes but the earlier one had a U yoke instead of a flat output so I swapped the shafts and yokes from the transfer cases. It was not too hard, didnt even need any directions. I never had a problem with 10 spline outputs but the flat flange mount c/v joint for the front driveshaft is way better than the earlier one so that is why I did it. I called ORD and they told me a 10 spline flat flange did not exist . I have a 73 plow/tow truck with a 454/465/205 that I have hammered on hard, the 10 spline output for the front output yoke has never had a problem so I have to call BS on saying it is weak. It has outlasted 3 driveshafts!
YES I'M SURE
Yeah, he's sure--but it's OK 'cause you're not really putting Furd parts in a GM, they're really New Process parts.
RIIIIIGHT, now I get what you are saying......kind of out the side of your mouth........I reread it and the way you worded it, it sounded like you were saying that I had to get rid om my "chevy" NP205 and get a "ford" in it's place.
Which you don't HAVE to do.
That's why I INITIALLY asked who made the conversion parts, not what FORD parts I needed.
Thanks for your help, I think? JJ
ORD/Advanced Adapters it is then.
Once again, you are my hero!
Boy that was interesting, two people have a disagreement that almost leads two more people to have a disagreement. Glad it all worked out in the end.
