divorced unit

Discussion in 'OffRoad Design' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Jan 19, 2001.

    I have a divorced 205 from a dodge and a 203 from a 350 chevy tranny. Is it possible to create a divorced crawler with these parts? Will I need anything more or different? thanks

    This kind of depends on what transmission you have. The best way to do a divorced Doubler is to mount both cases together and divorce them from the trans. In that case you would need a married version of the 205, or machine yours to be a married version.
    Ford used a divorced 203 in the late 70's, so you could use an input gear from one of those cases, or figure out another way to hook a driveshaft up to that female input gear in the 203.
    We have had some interest in putting a yoke on the back of the 203 gearbox and will probably look into that later this year, and at that point if you had a 203 married to the trans, you could divorce the 205 and be done.
    Hope this helps, the options are kind of confusing at first!
    Thanks

    Stephen, I was hoping you would say that...regarding the install of a yoke on the back of a 203 range box, thus allow a divorced 205 to be mounted further back to give guys like me with 13" of National spring lift on a 129" wheelbase Suburban ample front driveshaft without having to go with the $850 80 degree front shaft. I'd much rather spend money on a doubler which would also solve my front driveshaft problem!!
