    I'm building my truck from scratch and I've mocked up the drivetrain with the TH400 and NP203 combo, which should have the same dimensions as the TH400 with the douler added. I need to know how to measure for clocking the NP205 up... I think I can go up as high as 4-6" (measured at the front output). Is it possible to order the kit with the adaptor unwelded? I can handle the welding and squaring it up (tool and die background). That way I can clock it up myself.

    thanks,
    Andy
    p.s. it's not a fullsize chevy truck

    Dude! I just took a looksy at your site and WOW! You have done it all. The EFI conversion was way cool. I've all ways wondered how in the heck people can just assemble a bunch of parts like that and know what the specs should be so they'll all work together. Very cool truck and very cool site. So I guess that's a K30 truck!?

    Yeah, you can call it a K30 but the frame is K25 all the way. The engine and axles from the 77 have found their way into my newest project, my 1994 S10... Photo album at http://www.trailrunners4x4.org/users/realsquash

    Basically we need to know where you want it. Standard "up" rotation is about 2" and makes the 205 about level with the bottom of the 203. Past that we need a measurement up from the stock location. I think the 205 case is flat at about 3.5" up so you probably won't want to go much past that. Lay the 205 case up on a bench to check it out. Stock is when the fig 8 bolt pattern is straight up and down.
