    Just asking a simple question... I want to change out my old np203 for a np205. I will be hooking it up to a T350 Trans. in my 77 GMC Jimmy. I have had several explinations and diffrent examples. I want to find out the right parts so I only do this once the right way.

    Thanks for the help,

    [/ QUOTE ] that dosen't sound like any fun... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif, I think you've gotton about all the info you needed.. The right adapter for the right engine, slightly bigger hole for the stick, having to adjust the cross member and other mounts, and new drivelines... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You need a TH350 version NP205 complete with adapter housing, drive sleeve, and 27 spline input gear. If you have all this, it'll bolt right up. You will have to change the driveshafts but the crossmember has a real good chance of staying put, if not it won't move much.
    The best way to do this is buy the case with all the right parts together, if you don't, the adapter pieces alone make this a very expensive conversion. It runs about $550 or a bit more to buy it all new.
