    Finally got the doubler in, but one problem, it will pop out of 2 hi on the freeway, I hope it is just a matter of shifter adjustment, anyone else have this problem?

    Is it popping out of the 205 or the 203 rangebox?I would check to see if the shifter is hitting something and causing it to jump.Maybee your floor hole is too small.

    The 205, I will see if it is rubbing against the body seam, I know it is close.

    I am going to go with operator error as the probable cause /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Steve haven't had a problem with that, but are you running the ord shifter if so what do you think of it?? I definatly don't like mine the levers are to close, and the design lets it flex way to much which makes the 205 hard to shift.I'm afraid it's going to break.

    Mine would only work in 4hi. If I tried 2hi the rear shaft would be engaged, but the front shaft would be partially engaged,(i.e.) you could rotate it by hand but you would feel it notchy (Partial engaged). If you look at the shift rod at the hiem joint the locking jam nut is hitting the aluminum adapter. I filed the adapter to clearance the jam nut. Oh mine has the 2" up rotation. Hope this helps.

    Donovan, the VSS works awesome, I will stop by sometime this week so you can see your handy work on a moving K5. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    For those of you who do not know, Donovan machined my 205 tailhousing to accept my VSS sensor which is needed on any 90 or newer GM when swapping in a 205.

    I have the same exact thing happens to mine. Just like 1_4x4 explained. It's been like that since day one and I can't figure it out...

    I put mine together in the floor prior to putting it into the Blazer. I noticed that the 205 shift linkage would hit the adapter. I "clearanced" mine prior to putting it in the truck.

    I had to do the same. I bent the shift rod a little.
    But still can't get 2hi. 4hi on the road will make some loud noises from the front bearings (on the front output yoke). Atleast my hubs are unlocked.

    Install the ORD shifter and then clearance the adapter so the linkage jam nut does not hit it.

    Just to be clear...

    The 205 inner rod is the 2-wheel and 4-wheel shifter?
    This is the rod that engages the front driveshaft?

    Mine doesn't POP out of 2 Hi but it makes that "kinda' in kinda' out" of gear noise when it is (what I think) is 2 HI.

    So I put it in 4HI and no noise. No front driveshaft either.

    So if this is INDEED the case, How do I go about notching this for more room when it is already installed?
    Chisels??? (it is only aluminum).

    TIA

    I would just pull the shift rod out of the way and use a good file. The aluminum is soft enough that it won't take too long to file it down.
