    Just drove 85 miles in the plow truck (without the plow), and when I got home smelled like something was hot.

    The T-case was so hot the speedometer cable plastic was starting to melt on the end that came in contact with the metal sleeve.

    Couldn't touch it by hand. It's a 205 behind a TH400. Maybe the tranny just got way too warm and heat transferred back, or maybe the 205 is low on fluid. Anyone else ever had a 205 T-case get this hot?

    If it got that hot, just plan on replacing bearings and seals soon. I don't think it was the tranny; your clutches would probaly fail before it got so hot to radiate that much heat back to the T-case to melt that speedo cable. Just a thought.
