    1 What are the easist ways to identify the manual transmisions? Which manual tranny is the big daddy of them all? Does anyone know of a link to page with pics?


    2 Is there such a thing as a full time 205?

    I've never wanted a manual in my K5, so I'm not a guru at identifying different ones. What I do know is that the "big daddy" of GM manuals is the sm465.

    no. 203 is fulltime and similar in appearance though...

    #1 465 is plentiful and strong.

    The only similarity between a 205 and a 203 is they are boath a big chunk of metal :D .

    This is one of my 203s beside my divorced 205..........very little chance of mistaking one for the other...........and 205 is strictly parttime.
