    I am swapping aout the transfer case and the axels in a 78 blazer. I've heard of a closed rear yoke for the np205, where does one get one? also what drive shaft would be needed with that? Or if I didn't do closed yoke what Adapter dohickiey is needed? How do i tell what the splines are on the 205? came out of a 3/4 ton burban.

    All 203 and 205s have 32 spline rear outputs. All pre-80s are fixed yoke, all 80s are slip, and from then on, who knows. Seen a 1 ton with a slip, and then have one sitting outside off a 1 ton that is fixed. Use driveshaft that came off the donor truck, or just get one off any 3/4 ton, havta shorten it anyways....

    Where do you get it shortend? The one from the donor was really light, felt cheap almost.

    take it down to your local driveline shop after you've measured what length it needs to be. I think it's yoke face to yoke face, but i'm not 100% sure (and that's if you have two fixed yokes)

    one of the driveline web sites should have instructions...
