    Hey guys, trying to get my 205 out to rebuild and its being a lil difficult. How far should I have to pull it away from the tranny adapter for the shaft to clear? I've got the case seperated almost an inch so far. How much further do I need to go???? Or do I need to pull the adapter off the tranny to drop it?

    As long as the adapter is free of the linkage and everything is free from anything connected to the truck then slide the tcase back. It will take more then 1" to disengage.

    When it does though be ready for it. An NP205 is kinda heavy so don't have anything important (face, hands, arms, etc) between the case and the ground if it drops.

    I've got the jack under it now, as soon as I can get the shaft to come loose I'm home free. Hard part seems to be getting enough room to pull it back enough. I think next time I'll just pull the tranny too, seems like that would be a lot easier. :grin:

    Lol, I didn't press it! Made a lil platform for the jack and strapped it to it. Worked ok for a quicky job. When I get ready to put it back in later I'll make something that fits it better. Thanks for the help Hoss, just took a lil more wigglin to get her free. :grin:

    Oh Yeah......Getting it out is one thing, putting it back in is another! Heavy and a litttle hard to line up because of that. Had to lie on my back and kick it in. wiggle and cuss. Damn good fun :D enjoy! :rotfl:
