    How close is the Divorced Doubler to seeing the light of day? I have a line on a divorced 205 along with a F@rd D60. (The price is just about right) Would a person be able to drill & tap the end of the 203 output to accept a bolt on TH400 yoke? Or does there need to be a seal after the 203 box?

    We have the parts on the shelf to build one anytime you want it. We use a bolt on yoke like a 203 or 205.

    $800, you supply the yoke. Or if you like we can too but it's not part of the kit since there's so much variation in what people want to use on the driveshaft.

    I don't have a picture, we don't have one on the shelf and don't have pics of the past adapters. Imagine a yoke sticking out the back of the adapter housing and you've pretty much got it covered. If you need more info on it let me know, I just don't have a pic at this point.

    not a bad idea rob. isnt the 205 off a dodge right hand drop?
    cus then i am sure i can find one out here for you.
    lets see.
    divorced adaptor 800
    dodge div. 205 ~150
    drive shafts center ~150
    rear ~75 cut mine down as needed
    front ~125 lengthen mine as needed
    --------------
    ~ 1300
    that is about the same as finding a chevy th400 np 205
    but a lot less time consuming

    the divorced 205 was in ford and if i remember right dodges.
    take a 2wd trany and a divorced t-case. put a drive line in the middle and 2 more for the axles.
    that is what a divorced doubles it.

    There are couple ways to go in a divorced application.
    one is marry the 203 gearbox to the trans and run the 205 as a divorced unit. Goes like this:
    trans/203 -- driveshaft -- 205 -- driveshafts to the axles.
    another is to marry the 203 and 205 like a normal married Doubler but mount them divorced using a divorced ford NP203 input gear.
    Like so:
    trans -- driveshaft -- 203 gearbox / married 205 -- driveshafts to axles.
    The most cumbersome way is to use the divorced ford 203 with a divorced doubler kit. Then you get:
    trans -- driveshaft -- 203 -- driveshaft -- 205 -- driveshafts to each axle.

    All in all the divorced stuff isn't very popular since it takes up so much space but it can work well for some.
