Sm465 Np208 to NP205 swap??

As the title:

What all is needed??

SM465 w/ 10 spline output shaft
NP205 w/ 10 spline input shaft
Both units with either the 8 bolt hourglass adapter pattern, or the 6 bolt round pattern; and the adapter unit to suit the bolt pattern???

Did SM465 ever change their output shaft spline count???

All manual NP205's have 10 spline input shaft right???

8-bolt adapter switched to 6-bolt in 1984 right??

Will the NP208 crossmember work for the NP205???

Drive shaf mods will be required right???

Sorry for all the questions guys, just trying to help a fellow wheeler out.

Thanks in advance for any info.
