Re: 1979 Pickup 4-speed to 5-speed Swap

I have a 1980 4wd with L43.  I am installing a L52 and would prefer to use the transfer case out of my 80 as I know its condition.  The spline on the 80 does not taper like the 83 does.  Do I need to do anything to those splines on the 80 transfer case?  If so can I just pull the input gear out of the 83 case and install in the 80 case?   Thank you in advance!  Michael
the parts are interchangeable yes you can swap the input gear but its not worth the work if you can get it to fit.  please post pictures because I was not aware of this difference
