    OK so I now know what NP205 I need to find to be able to make it work on my SM465. But this now brings up another question what adapter do I need? What will work? None of the parts yards have the SM465 adapter with the round NP205 bolt pattern that I need. Is there any other adapter that will work. thanks John

    there is no 465 to 205 adapter with the round pattern. the only 465/205 pattern is the figure 8 pattern.

    i just happen to have one of these if you want it? not the adapter but the 205 case

    The SM465 to round pattern NP205 was found in 1985 and newer 1 ton trucks with the SM465 - they're rare and unfortunatly we do not have any used on the shelf.

    Thank you for looking and the info I guess I'm just gunna have to swap the tranny and transfer case I have a nice SM465/NP205 combo from a 70 one ton rig so I guess it will just be a little more wrenching.

    I have the adapter you seek, $100.00 plus the ride. You might want to consider checking with an ebay seller named "rgfparts"; he's up in Maine I believe, and has a good selection of NP205 parts from time to time. Plus, freight won't kill you. I don't have an extra shifter, but they appear on ebay regularly. Hope this helps.

    I just saw a whole 465/205 already bolted together for $100 bucks. Sure would be a heck of a lot easier than how you're going about it.

    Thank for the info on the ebay guy and I will let you know about that adapter I have to first find the right round pattern long 32 spline NP205 then I will get to the adapter. It has to stop raining first up here.
