    My neighbor is parting out his 86 1 ton short bed 2wd Chevy. All he's keeping is the 454 and the bed. I have a 73 longbed with 383 and TH350. I want a manual and his is. The knob shows L-1-2-3-R. Will this work with my NP205 T-case? What all would I have to do to make this work in my truck? I can cut a hole in my floor and swap out a flexplate for a flywheel, but If the manual tranny is like the TH350 where the 2wd is different than the 4wd I'll keep looking. Thanks guys.

    yes the 2wd is different from the 4x4 version in regards to the output shaft, you could run a divorced case, but otherwise i would keep looking

    How much does he want for the trans, complete, including pedals, bellhousing, etc?

    That hydraulic clutch setup alone is probably worth at least $50-100, if you can get the complete trans for that price, go for it.

    I thought all SM465 trannys were the same. I though the only difference was whether it had a tail housing or a t-case adapter on the back. :thinking:

    Either way, a TH350 NP205 won't work with an SM465 tranny. Different spline counts on the tranny output/t-case input. You could make it work by changing the t-case input, getting the right sleeve and the right adapter but then you'd just be further ahead getting the right t-case. SM465 t-cases are the cheapest of the NP205s.
