    Title says 700R-4 to 465 swap, but you say your truck has a 465/208 right now?

    If you already have a 465/208 then you also already have a hydraulic clutch. First year for that was '85.

    I swapped a 465/208 out for a 465/205. I am pretty sure I used the same crossmember, but drilled four new holes to mount it.

    What year is the donor?

    Difference will be earlier tall adapter vs. later short adapter. Crossmembers are not interchangeable between those years since the adapters are entirely different. You could use spacers and what not of course, but why?

    I believe he said donor was a 79 truck and mine is a 85 K5.
