Likely the flange sizes are different, but really
swapping them isn't that big of a deal.
As long, as you should know by now, as the circlips
for the flanges are reinstalled correctly!!
Anyway, here is a shot of a flange tool being used
that is very simply made:
Really, it is just a piece of flat metal with a hole
drilled to accomodate the bolt. There is a hole to
thread the bolt into in the middle of the flange. The
flat metal is pushing on two of the CV bolts. You
might want to pick up a couple washers for the middle
bolt for some adjustability.
I seem to recall a mention that 5th gear is accessable
and replaceable with the transmission in the car, but
can't say for sure. I'm sure someone else will
comment on that.
