    there goes the low range /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif.
    its so much work, but im sure you wont miss that TV cable.
    you can get an output shaft for the 700 to bolt the 205 to it.... just a thought

    good job on the th350\np205 swap, i just got with my 12 bolt swap on suday night, nuthin like having that durability behind me, and that durability under you. and i took out my old 10 bolt gov-loc carrier from the houseing, turns out i broke off one of the ears that holds on the carrier bearings /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif, and the carrier is cracked across one section, and the spyders are chewed on it, maybe i will take some pictures of it and post them on here.
