what is the best method for ginding down the splines and approx how much needs to come off. fixing to have to do this.

Not a whole lot.  It is kind of apparent when you look at the t-case splines.  The early one kind of tapers bigger after the business part of the splines.  That is the part that will get in the way.  You can take a little off and then test the fit into the trans output.  If it doesn't drop in grind a little more.
