    Let me guess to shorten the output shaft on a Th350 I have to tear the tranni all the way down? Is there any other way?
    Thanks

    Nope, that would be the way. Why do you need to shorten it?

    Darn it. I'm installing a Np205 and my tail shaft is about 4" to long. I was thinking about having a custom adapter made but i'm looking at all of my options.
    Thanks

    What T-case is behind yours now? I'm going to guess a 208.

    Yea it's a Np208. I yanked it last weekend and all kinds of metal shavings feel out of the drain hole :crazy:. Some of the pieces where like 1/2 inch big. But she is still going. I don't know how long though. :doah:

    Yea I know....I'm all set now. I'm buying a tail shaft off from 400Raptor that will stick out 1 1/2" past the edge of my tranny. I just called Amcco and they will install it for $150 bucks. I am having them add a trans pak. For another $100. So i'm looking at $250. Thats not bad in my book.
    Thanks
    Adam
