    I have one. It fits a 208. If I put in a Doubler and change
    R&P gears, it will be for sale. I'm looking for 3:55 or taller gears for 10 bolt and Dana 60.

    OK, thanks for the replies. The GV OD came from behind a 208 which was behind a TH400 in an '85 6.2 pickup. I bought the whole truck sightunseen with the blown 6.2 (as a parts truck). The guy I bought it from had so many 700R4 problems he went to a 400 with the GV combo.

    What I have available:
    1. GV main OD unit

    2. The accessories including: electronics, speedometer
    cable adaptor box, wiring harness, switches, and the GV litterature.
    3. 208 adaptor, aluminum, needs oil seal
    4. 205 adaptor, aluminum, new (I bought new from GV at a cost of $300)
    5. CV driveshaft adaptor, which is like a fixed yoke, and uses the retaining bolt) Also known as a CV drive flange
    (4 hole Saginaw pattern like is used on front of a 205)

    The tail shaft on a GV OD is configured the same as a 2WD TH400 trans (32 spline slip), except it also has a tapped hole for a fixed-yoke retaining bolt. GV company also has an emegency brake kit available for it.

    This same OD box is used in Europe on much heavier trucks
    so is plenty stout for K5s and Subs. GV sells this box
    for use on motorhomes also.

    I will price it and take pics after thanksgiving.
     
  5. Thanks for the info update.
