    Could someone please verify that this is a 205 t-case?

    It's for sale and I'd like to swap it for the weak NP208 in my M1008.

    Thanks in advance.

    no no no thats one of those POS np267's they are hard to find, and not worth a crap. Just load it in a box, and ship it here, I'll pay shipping for ya. I have ways to get rid of them :).

    Thank you all for the quick replies!!! :bow: :bow: :bow:

    And tell ya what?
    It's even here in Germany!

    I'm trying to find one of those babies for nearly 5 years now.


    If I understand you correct, it's a simply bolt on to my th400, right? Some driveline length issues?

    It will bolt right up to your TH400,it has the correct shaft stickout.
    Gonna need a different crossmember because of the short foot adapter vs the 208 tall adapters that the 1008s used.
    Also your rear driveshaft will a couple of inches to short and the front will be a couple to long.

    Congrats on the find!

    Bringing my old thread back to life as the swap is close (my 208 failed the 40th time!!!!). Below are the 2 adapters, long one ist the CUCV 208, short i bought with the 205.

    Can someone please post a pic of a NP 205 "short food adapter" crossmember? I'm afraid of clearing issues with that short adapter. Or ist the NP205 not hanging down as much as a NP205?
    Another question: will this kind of tc case mount work? Unfortunately on ORD's website they sell 2 kinds of mounts and only the older style is pictured. Wondering what the newer style looks like.

    Thankyou! Good pic of both parts. Missed the crossmember on ORD's website though.

    Thx man! Shipping would be a fortune i think. But if every other attempt fails, who knows . . .
    I try to get one made locally (no fabrication skills here :crazy:) or try the few us-truck yards/dealers here in Germany.

    desertrat67:
    Do you happen to have a pic of that S shaped one?


    Thankyou

    The guy I got my 86 205 from was just using a piece of 1" or 1 1/2 square tube on the bottom of the frame with the holes drilled for the trans mount. If you look at it, it is straight across so fabbing something up should be easy.

    :eek1:



    that made my brain hurt. i dont even want to know how much money was spent in repairs vs what the cost of the NP205 swap was. Your setup dosnt seem THAT aggressive (aka no 52in boggers, supercharged 572 big block etc. etc.), Ive never heard of an NP208 being that unreliable. Kinda seals the deal on my NP205 upgrade later on :)
