If I had to guess, the 805 prob uses a 59. Just a guess.

Their is a big difference between a 56 and 59. Personally I'd go back with a 59. A 56 is about 560 cfm and a 59 is around 800-900 cfm. I don't know much about swaps other than a 56 is meant to spin slower and a 59 usually spins faster rpm.

Well that’s what I want to hear some facts that would push me either way I want to get the exact one which would be the 5 plus but this one was up for sale at a good price but I don’t want to become a machinist trying to make it fit thanks Ken

56 is a 5 inch gear with 6 inch impellers, a 59 is a 5 inch gear with 9 inch impellers so the casing and footprint will be 3 inches longer. You would have to fabricate a little to accommodate the additional 3 inches. Like mentioned above you would be losing close to 300 cfm by going with a 56 to me it wouldnt be worth the hassle to fabricate and lose cfm
