    Is there any way to change the output shaft on the 208 tcase. I want to adapt a Double Cartisisan ( cv drive shaft ) for the rear of my 81 Blazer. I was told that I cannot use a slipe yoke on the rear cv drive shaft. I was told that I need to change the 208 tcase output shaft to be fitted with a flange for this type of drive shaft. However I can not find the kit or ?? for this converstion.

    Does this kit exist.....

    find a dodge case and swap in the chevy input gear and use the chevy addaptor. this will get you a factory fixed yoke rear. or get a slip yoke eliminator kit or sye kit.

    There are parts out there made for making a slip yoke CV shaft . All the big driveshaft places make one with it . I run one . Instead of the flange on the end there is a slip yoke attached :k5: :k5:

    This place is advertised in the U.S. offroad magazines
    Slip yoke with CV to remove vibrations.

    I get most of my shafts built at Dynamic shaft in Scarborough. They can make one up for you also.

    Hey! I'm just down the road in Baltimore... North of Cobourg

    az drivelines np208 sye=bs.

    my driveshaft collapsed (somebody must've jumped it :cool1: )

    and ripped the sye out of the back of the t-case. so if you DO buy it, do yourself a favor and buy the 7" long travel version lol.

    other than this minor inconvenience, it DOES work great at removing vibration and strengthening things up a bit. i liked mine- until i collapsed it.

    Here is something more for you to ponder.
    I have a TH400 from an Impala sitting on the garage floor. Pretty hard to hurt a 400. I was thinking of puting it in front of my 208. Too much work finding the adapters etc.
    Keep it in mind I may let it go as I was thinking of going with a TH350.
