    Will a front driveshaft off a 208 with the flange, fit a 205 without the flange ,if i take the flange of the driveshaft? Or will it be too short?

    I've got a front driveshaft question too.

    Which is longer, a front driveshaft from a 700R4/NP 208 combo, or a TH 400/NP 208 combo?

    what are you asking Bill? length you are probably on your own break out the tape.
    what year is the 208 in?
    what year is the 205? my 205 has a flange so i need to know what your 205 is out of to see if the u joint is the same.
    the 82-86 uses a saginaw u joint with 1.125"bearing caps pn.5-3147X
    a conversion 3147-1310 is available p#544U or 3022a conversion 3147-1350 is available p#3162

    I'm sure somebody knows--what's longer, a 700R4, or a TH400?

    i definately would say the 700-r4 because of the overdrive wouldn't be too much, maybe like an 1" or 2"??? Correct me if i'm wrong. Later - Doug

    I have a 208 w/flange and a 205 w/o flange.

    They do not use the same size caps, so you can't "splice" w/o cutting the driveshaft.

    So, in other words, my current shaft is 1" shorter than my old one. Thanks!!
