    NV261 is the case that is in my '01 2500HD with the diesel. It is basically a beefed up version of the NV241. Wouldn't have been original in an '88, but it is possible that someone swapped it in. Actually, it seems odd though. The 261 in my truck has slip yoke outputs front and rear, and is LH drop. Not sure if there is a RH drop version of that case? Now I see your other post that it is attached to a TH400. That trans and transfer case must have come out of a 1 ton cab & chassis or something.
