Re: AX5 interchange between early and late

Case, cover, what have you. The output shaft is the main shaft and there is no changing it short of complete disassembly. This is well established.

I might add, I have one of these on a jig to be rebuilt so the internals are no mystery. The two I have to build one from are both late models so I have no early model to look at short of disabling my present driver.

If someone had an early trans and could measure the shaft from the fifth gear lock ring, that would tell me pretty much everything I needed to know. I'm fairly certain that everything in the rear case half interfaces the same.

Just for clarity, my goal is to swap the rear case half on the trans for the late flange and seal position. I don't believe a 231 21 spline long input shaft is available for purchase.
