    I am in the process of replacing a tired th350/np203 combo with a freshly rebuilt th350/np205 combo in my 78 Blazer, but I have a couple of questions.

    I don't have any of the original shifter hardware, so I am upgrading the shifter attaching bolt to the later model greasable bolt. Are any washers or bushings used with this type of bolt?

    The brace from the transmission to transfer case that was used with my th350/np203 combo is too long for the th350/np205 combo. Can someone tell me a part number for the correct part? Does anyone have one for sale?

    My shifter has a stiff wave washer on that bolt to help prevent rattles. It rattles even less for a while after a fresh squirt of grease in the zerk on that bolt.

    Can't help on the part numbers.

    Yes the two holes in the crossmember were to wide for me as well. I just broke out the dremel and cut it in to match the holes on the adapter. Sometimes a little modifying will do just as good as buying the correct part. This worked out great for me. Any other help, just ask me. I did my swap about 5 months ago now. I love that NP205!!!
