Does anyone out there know what the difference is on the upper gearcase for a stringer post 1977.

I've been toying with the idea of changing the gearing on my sportsman and an upper gear case caught my eye on ebay relatively inexpensive (comparable to just gear sets I have seen) rebuilt with a nice 21-20 gear ratio but it says it is for an 82-86 3.8 liter V-6...OK, I have not dug really deep into my outdrive research...yet, but I haven't seen anything that explains the diference and  I am just curious if I could use this newer upper gearcase and bolt it right in, I mean judging from every picture I have ever seen the difference is not immediately obvious...

Anyone know?
