    Stephen,

    My brain is hurting, and I'm a little concerned that I'm not going to like the answer anyway.....

    Ford 205 has the front output on the opposite side as Chevy, so does that mean that the Doubler for Ford is a "mirror image" of the Chevy one???

    Is there any chance that I can use the same 2" upclocked Doubler I already own, if I decide to change my mind and utilize a Ford 205????


    BTW -> This is a sidebar discussion from the Unimog 404 axle thread currently running in "The Garage"..... I never saw portal 'Mogs in person until this weekend, and now I think they are the coolest thing since, well... sliced bread.

    Not Stephen, but I think at best your going to wind up 2" clocked down, assuming the pattern is symetric. Also round or "8" pattern on your adapter? All Fords are round AFAIK.

    I think you're out of luck on this one. The adapters are totally different, to the point that you should probably start over. It's not a problem to put the ford 205 behind the GM 203 that you have but even if you had the round pattern GM adapter the 205 bolt patterns are quite a bit different (similar pattern, different rotation) and the cutout for the shift rail is in a different spot.
    I haven't been over to the 'mog axle post but you're right, they are pretty cool stuff.

    If I was going to order my doubler again, I would not get the 2 inch up rotation. It will give you more transmission, and oil pan clearance for the 404 axles. It will work with a 2 inch up rotation but the clearance is pretty close. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
