    if its all stock, its part time. NP203 is the only full time case offered in 73-87 trucks.

    if you still have the floor indicator telling you the gears


    a fulltime unit (NP203) will have 4H N 4L : meaning you are always in 4wd but in high/low fashion.

    if the shift nob has loc in the pattern its full time and 203 case. but it might have been converted at 1 time. and if no hubs just smooth cap and no emblems on frt axle hubs then 203 full time.

    the 203 was only offered until 79 so if it is orignal it would be a 208 transfer case which is a part time case

    is your tcase cast iron or alum? cast is 203 and 205. alum is 208 and newer. but 203 has alum tail housing and 205 all cast except the seal holders.

    a 203 should have five postions on the shift knob 4HI Loc, 4 HI, N, 4 LO, 4 LO LOC so if you only have four it should be a 208 which is part time
