    I have FINALLY got my blazer back runnunig.I've got a 350/turbo350 to a np205 t-case. My shifter for the t-case needs to be bent so i can shift it into 2-hi.(i can do it but not tonight and have to get to work tommorow0 Its in FourHI, I have no front driveshaft in it yet.And wanted to know if ya'll think it will hurt it to drive it to work and back. (its about 13 milesw round trip)

    Well Ive taken it around the block(i live in the country so it was a VERY big block) It drove fine but I've heard horror stories of t-cases exploding , I have drove it in 4hi to get home from the woods with nothing but a front dshaft and had no problems. Just making sure it wont hurt. Its all blacktop to work but its backroads not highway.

    Hmmmmm. I would think it would be OK if you can maintain the slow speed. Stop and have a beer every mile or so just to make sure tho.
    I've revved the crap out of my ride in 4low in drive with no problems (yet) but I have a different xfer case.
    I would keep posting and get other advice still. dave

    205, no front drive shaft, shouldn't be a problem. Make sure the hubs are unlocked.
