    Hello Dr. Watson--I'm getting geared up to swap a set of 406 unimog axles in my 89 K5. I'm going to keep my TBI350/700R4 combo and want to put a doubler behind that. My question is what combo of 203/205 cases do I need to make it a drivers side drop since my differential will be on the driver's side with the mog axle? Do I still use a GM 203 with a ford 205 or what? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Have you done one like this before?

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    That's what I was thinking I just wanted to make sure. I will give him a call pretty soon to get one.

    Thanks,

    That's one of the main reasons for my choice in these axles. With 48" XLs and a stock SBC I pretty sure they will come in handy. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    your only looking at 182:1

    why not slap a 5.1 atlas behind the 203?

    474:1

    you'd need line locks to stop /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I've been thinking about doing the 3:1 in the 203, just for good measure. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm going to change my brake booster out for one out of a motor home to help get full use out of the bigger mog drum brakes. Also going to have a driveline brake as well. I think I will be okay until I can upgrade to disc.

    The brakes are electrical.....and located on the side of the steering column with some keys hanging out of the switch! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I guess "ignition brakes" aren't very convenient with a slushbox.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
