    I'm sorry. I am asking about a totally divorced doubler setup. Like having a fixed yoke type input fot the 203 rangebox. I would like the ability to run a doubler in a project someday that may end up with a totally different transmission like a clark 5-speed that would be behind a 3208 CAT V-8. And I didn;t see any doubler kits for a clark 5-speed so I was wondering about a totally divorced setup being possible for a doubler.

    oooo.kkkkk. i see now. i havent seen any kits for that. but if you wait there is a 3.0 gear kit coming out for the 205 , from i think jb conversions. thay have been testing it alot so thay say. and it comes with a heaveyr duty case and .25" bigger gears, but eliminates the p.t.o. setup. hope this helps you.

    That sounds cool. Thanks :) I also am thinking about using pto on that rig also. So that'd leave that one out. I was just curious if anyone had ever built a totally divorced doubler. The idea sounds really cool. :grin:

    there is nothing differnt about a fully divorced doubler. Just get a divorced 203, same adapters between the 203 and 205, run a married 205 to it and mount the two up with an intermediate shaft off the trans. Now ORD sells or at one time did sell another form of Divorced doubler. They used a married 203 that then had a yoke to go through an intermediate shaft to a divorced 205. That may be the way to go if this is your kind of thing cause I have enver personally seen a divorced 203 but I have seen a few 205s.

    factory divorced NP203's are a Ford-only item, and they arent very common, either. maybe find one?

    keep an eye on ebay. there's a guy who still does the old style doubler, with the yolk style output on the back of the 203. but he only sells it as a whole assembly 203 range box for th350 to yolk.

    That'd be good but I am talking about running a clark 5-speed behind a CAT 3208 V-8 diesel... nothing factory from gm would just bolt up to it I wouldn't think.

    I have one. Was from a '75 F250.

    When the time comes, I'm going to adapt it to a round-pattern/long-input 205. Probably going to have the adapter made locally... nobody seems to make one for this application ;)

    That's cool! :grin: Now at least I know there is a possibility of a doubler option. But I may not need one. If I end up with something that came out of a big truck, I may have a very low 1st gear that I would use instead :grin:

    I just realized how insane a divorced doubler would be behind an eaton-fuller 10 speed :grin: They have a 1st gear ratio of 12.69-19.58 depening on which model. :saweet: Basically it would be a doubler in its own compared to the 465 :grin:

    Someone linked a yellow S-dime monster truck on ebay a couple days ago that had one in it.

    A friend of mine & I discussed hanging a t/c on the back of his NP435 in his Hi-Boy that would then drive his existing divorced 205. Figured to try to use a GM app t/c so he could use the first t/c's front output to drive the blender on the front bumper.:D Oh, and also to clear the front driveshaft.

    With a Clark you can't go there w/o buying that one guy's adapter. :frown1:
