    I've rebuilt one in a friends truck that snapped the front main input in two pieces. Don't have pics but I may be able to find the old shaft.

    Gear oil. Pretty simple to install new seals and gaskets.

    I run a 454 that makes 590HP, 690 ft/lbs, and I have no problems, even running 40" Boggers. I have a spare just in case, but I haven't been able to break it yet. :rolleyes:

    The known NP205 failures are the front output shaft (if not Ford 32sp) and the bearing retainers at the output shafts. You can find billet replacement retainers on Pirate.

    The reason some of the retainers are failing, is the driveshaft is over extending, trying to bring the bearing with it, which is pinned onto the output shaft between the yoke. The bearing pushes on the center of the retainer, the retainers bolts try to hold the retainer back, and the reatiner fails due to thin cast aluminum construction. I'm yet to see this occur in a non-modfied vehicle.
