    Just wondering how much a 205 transfer case weighs? Currently have a 203 and know that it weigh about 170lbs interesting to see if a 205 weighs more or less. Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    203 is heavier than a 205, atleast the 203's that I've handled are MUCH heavier than my 205.

    After installing my 205, my old 208 seemed light as a feather.

    I took all these measurements myself, so I trust their accuracy to within +- 1/16"

    Al weights are Bathroom Scale weights so take them for what they are worth:

    NP-203 - 195 lbs
    NP-205 - 124 lbs
    NP-203 Range Box - 81 lbs
    WMS Dual T-case adapter - 25 lbs
    TH-350 to NP-203 Adapter - 12 lbs
    Total for Dual Transfer Cases w/o shifters - 242 lbs
    All weights dry

    2wd Th-400 short housing - 4" from back of 6 bolt flange to end of housing, .625" shaft stick out
    2wd Th-400 Long Housing - 13-5/8" from back of 6 bolt flange to end of housing, .375 shaft stick out
    2wd Th-400 Short Shaft weight - 140 lbs (1-3/8" 32 spline) no fluid
    Full TH-400 Torque Converter - 40 lbs full of fluid
    TH-400 Case length - 24-5/16"

    Figured I'd put the rest of it in here for reference as people search the archives.

    124 lbs? thats it? man, sure seemed closer to 175 to me. I did have the shifter and factory th350-to-np205 adapter bolted to it. <shrug> that adapter is pretty dang heavy... but it aint 50 pounds. oh well, maybe Im just gettin old. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Maybe YOUR 205 weighed 124Lbs.
    The 205 out of my 71 Blazer was MUCH heavier than that.Maybe I got the lead version. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    I've carried TH350's+700R4's no problem,but going up stairs and taking the 205 in and out of my van was a bitch!
    I weigh 215lbs and that 205 was at least greater than 175lbs.
    I'm don't mean to knock your weights man but my back would have felt alot better hauling around a 124lb 205. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    if you dont beleive it, go weigh one yourself. Just think about it. The entire doubler, with the 205, and the range box of a 203, and the wms adapter only weighs 242 lbs. If your too old to be carying around heavy sh!t, get an engine hoist. Thats what I did. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Eng. hoists don't go down stairs very easy.That's where my shop is. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    I don't think age is an issue either.
    Too bad it's already back in the truck.
    Next time it's out I'll get a weight on it.(who knows when that will be)
    I'll dig up this post in 5 years just to tell you your right

    I just took my bathroom scale out to the garage since my stuff is all cleaned up and sitting on the workbench.The 203 rangebox with the long factory shaft still in it weighs 93lbs.The 205 without the adapter weighs 128lbs. No fluids in either one.So if my wife is right about the bathroom scale, the 205 REALLY weighs about 118.
