    that is a mabey

    you didnt say what 205 and adaptor you want to use . if its a 400 adaptor on a factory 32 spline tcase then try this. check the shaft length and if it is a slip yoke tail 2x4 tranny thay are a 27 spline from what i have been told . these 27 trannys where in the 80's trucks. the best way is to take off the tail housing and slip on the 205 to see if it's the right one. don't know if this helps but i did a 4l80-e fixed 2x4 to 205 swap and had to make a 1 1/4" spacer rather than change the tail shaft to the tune of 170 for shaft and 50 for gaskets plus labor. hope this helps.

    It depends on what tailshaft you need...
    I believe a th400 out of a 2wd truck with a fixed yoke will work..
    It has to be the short tailshaft with the fixed yoke that bolts onto the end.
    You will remove the bolt in the end of the tailshaft and the yoke, and also remove the speedo drive gear.. and it should be the same as a 4x4 th400. but there are a couple 4x4 tailshafts.

    alright from the picture it looks like the short tailshaft with the fixed yoke. the transmission that is in my pickup i have no idea if it works. the pickup used to be a manuel and when i bought it, it had been converted to a automatic but still had the whole in the floor and the original steering column. so i got a new column for it and im not sure if i should try and c if the t350 works. i would much rather just get a turbo400 and be done with it cuz i know there alot stronger. not sure what i should do yet. and i also have an np208 i wont be using. not sure if it works either.
