    I have finally lined up a 203 for my 465, but I thought about using a Ford D60 for driveshaft issues. Can the GM 203 be used in conjunction with the Ford 205? Or will I just have to go with the divorced style Doubler adapter?

    I think if you go to ORD's web page and read the write up on their Jimmy you'd find that is what they did on it.

    No problem, we have a couple different options even. Basically you can lay them both out flat like I did or use a more conventional setup with the 203 in the stock location and the 205 turned up for a bit more clearance. Either way is possible and somewhat common for us.

    which Ford 205 would you suggest using, the divorced or married style? I can get both local to me very cheap, so come with your opinion.

    You should use the married ford case, the divorced is probably possible but you have to do a bunch of machine work and replace the input so it's not really worth it. The married case is a bolt up fit.
