    I bought a 1981 3/4 longbed Pickup yesterday. It has the 10-bolt 8-lug front and 14bolt ff in the rear with 4.10 gears, 350 engine th400 trans and a 208 t-case. Luckely I have found a D60 front with matching 4.10 and a divorced NP 205 witch is most likely going to be put behind the 208.

    Ok so my question is: Since I have no use for the 10-bolt front is there anything I can use as an argument when selling it to a K5-guy? Is it really any stronger than a regular 6-lug?

    I live in Finland, Europe so I dont think there will be any trade...Sorry!

    When I looked under the truck a little closer I noticed there isnt space for a front driveshaft if I put the 205 behind the 208. But I have the solution allready. I take the other 205 I have, it is made for leftside front driveshaft (I REALLY cant imagine what make use those...) and put it in insted of the 208.

    It belonged to a Chevy van 4x4 made by Quigley so it will fit behind a 350 or 700.
