The rear output on my NP205 case uses a 1310 U-joint. Does the 1310 CV version have a different style yoke than the "regular" 1310 version? Can I just get a 1310 CV driveshaft and use that with my current yoke... or do I need the flange style? Here's a picture of what I have...

I think it will use a mounting flange, you will have to remove the yoke.

check this set up out, for a diff application, but similar.

or you can get a CV yoke....Jesse at High Angle got my CV yoke for my Dana 20 for me , no flange necessary. I'm sure he can get one for your 205

I think that I confused "CV" with "double cardan."

It's true that a CV rear driveshaft can be used on my NP205 -- but I'll probably need a flange-style output, like several people suggested.

I think what I want to know is if I can run a double cardan joint on my current yoke. Quoting Spicer, their double cardan joints would offer "near-constant velocity" performance -- so it won't be a full CV.

What about XJ front driveshafts -- are those CV or double cardan? I was going to use that as my driveshaft, but I'm not sure if it'll attach to the yoke I have.

In essence, this is what (I think) I am able to run with my current yoke:

Currie and Rubicon express are the most common double-cardan shafts that use a drive flange....most others use a yoke.
You could probably do a little machining and make a u-bolt type yoke work on a CV (excuse me...double cardan) shaft.

I got a cv yoke from the front out put of a NP-229 T-case from a 84 Jeep Grand Wagoneer you have to change the rear seal to a smaller one. I also used the front cv shaft from the waggy once I shortend it 4 inches.

No. The spacing between the holes is different.

What version of NP205 are you running that uses a 1310 rear output? I was under the impression that all 205's came with 1350 rear outputs.

The case is from some sort of Chevy truck. It's mated to the SM465 four-speed transmission. The date stamping is from 1979.

The front output is a flange, but the rear is the yoke (as you can see in the picture).
