242 input shaft

This might belong in the classifieds but I thought I would get a better response here. I'm in the middle of swapping t cases and I can't find one anywhere near me with the correct input shaft. Does anyone have a .840 input shaft for the new gear cut that they want to sell?

why not just take the input shaft you have along with the front case half and swap them out with the case you are going to? that way the gear cut will stay the same you have
