    I am sure this has been kicked around many times, but I can't find any relating topics here. Time for the TH350 to get ousted for a 700R4

    (TH350 1:1 drive + 4.11 gears = short trips).

    NP205 behind the TH350 right now. Can you direct me to the right resource to find info about this?

    Thanks! Russell

    Seems like this is covered every other day /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif you need the outputshaft from Advanced Adapters (which requires total tear down to install) and the 350/205 adapter bolts on.

    another way is to use a spacer between the 700R and trim off 1/8" of the 700R output shaft. This is less desirable on short wheelbase vehicles cause it adds about 6" overall to the length.

    Final drive is 0.70
