NP241 Question

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Apr 12, 2000.

    Were NP241's full time or part time or both? Are they a good transfer, better than a NP208?

    they're basically the same, the 241 is a newer version and both of them are part time

    Are the internals basically the same? I was wondering b/c my Haynes manual doesn't show the breakdown of the 241 but it does show every other transfer case offered in the blazers.

    yeah, they're both chain-driven and work the same, i think the design was a bit different as well as the material the case was made out of.

  5. Well a buddy has one in his 91 and he doesn't have locking hubs(auto hubs)and I am told that the NP241 is part-time no matter what hubs it has. Is the teller of this story full of sh#t or what? I have never messed with full time crap !!

    The NP-241 came on most 88 and newer models. A circular tag on the backside of the case can identify each. There are few exceptions. The 208 and 241 case can be shifted on the fly from 2wd to 4 hi, as long as the hubs are in the lock position.The NP-208 is a chain driven part time case. This case was made to replace the NP-205, as the 208 is aluminum, and the 205 is cast-iron. Less weight, better mileage, though not as strong. The NP-241 is considered to be a good transfer case and is stronger than the NP-208. It has an aluminum case and chain like the 208.

    Also...the 241's low range ratio is 2.72:1, versus 2.61:1 for the 208. The 241 was the upgraded 208 that occured in 1988.
