    Have someone interested in the 32 spline 465 I have sitting around. He wants to know what it would take to mate a 205 to the back of it. My thought it get a 10 spline output shaft and adapter but what other options are there? He says the 205 is a 78, trying to find out what it came behind.

    32 spline input for the 205 is the easiest fix.


    Edit; never mind that would be a 465 for a 208 which has a long shaft. You would need to make an adapter to make it work.

    would the 208/241 adapter work? On my 203 for my doubler, I plan to drill and tap to use the 208/241 adapter. Could the 205 be setup like that?

    Either way you need to replace the output in the trannie. 10 spline is the cheapest way.

    i think that the 208/241 adapter should work on the 6 bolt round pattern NP205...but then you'd have to rig something up for the shifter. the factory 32 spl 465/205 adapters have a shifter boss cast into them.

    what he should do, imho, is forget the 10 spline. use a stock 10 spl 465/205 adapter and then a special plate that ORD makes, its like 1.5" inches thick or so. it bolts between the adapter and the transfer case. but then, you'd need a new input for the 205, and the case bored. for simplicity & cheapness' sake, 10 spline would be your best bet.

    32 spline short input gear from ORD ($200) and bore out the NP205 case ($40-50). Then use the figure 8 style adapter for the SM465 and a spacer from ORD ($??)...

    Or just sell the current NP205 for $150-200 and buy a 32 spline NP205 with factory 32 spline 465 adapter for $150-200.

    good luck finding that for that price...i'm sure its happened, but of course whenever you need it, no one has it or seems to think its worth $400. and then, its never local so dont forget the $75 to have it shpped from Washington state, or wherever.

    Not quite... I have bolt adapters. The round 205 adapter is ~2" longer than the 208/241 adapter.

    You're right on the shifter boss difference. Also, the 205 adapter is notched for the shifter rail.
