    My Blazer is down due to broken rear and busted transfer case. I found a 1983 Burb for parts. Have yet to see it, but the guy says that it has 4 speed and a 14 bolt rear and 8 lug 10 bolt front. I can get this thing super cheap. It had 127K on it when the motor went. I know nothing about Burbs, did they come with 14 Bolts? What transfer case will be mated to the SM465? Hopefully, I found a score and can knock a few items off my "wish list" with one stop. Thanks for the help.

    Did a little digging and it looks like it would have the NP208. That's not good.

    Yup, the NP208 and a 14 bolt semifloater rear axle.

    They are aluminum and chain driven. It has a slip yoke and you can not get a slip yoke eliminator kit for it. It does have a very desirable gear ratio, but is just not as beefy as some others. I want to go with a NP205 cast iron gear driven unit. 205's are considered bomb proof. My current 208 is toast (have yet to tear it down and find out what it going on). Here is a link to a transfer case guide that will help you out:

    Glad that helped. Try this one for the NP205. You will see why they are so popular around here.

    There was no link to click but I have read so much about the 205 and that is what really prompted me to find out what I had. Matter of fact the magazine I was reading said that before a rock crushed a 205 the 205 would crush the rock. I think it was 4 Wheeler mag. Thanks for all the help from everyone with my question and I am sorry to jump the original poster with my question. :(
