    Ok I now have a 700r4 with an np208 is it possible to swap in an Np205?

    What will I need to do to make this work?

    Yeah it's doable. IIRC need a 350/205 adaptor and either swap the 700 output or cut the excess off. Dunno bout spacers....

    you will need a 1" spacer from www.automatickings.com 80$ US and then the 205 needs to be from a th350 27spline

    I just did this swap. Here is what you need:
    205 from a th-350 (27 spline)
    factory 350-to-205 adapter
    shifter (I went to a twin stick)
    27 spline coupler sleeve
    flat style crossmember and mounts
    Spacer Kit http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/Quick_Swap_switch_kit_700_to_350_4x4_p/609-00007q35a.html about $55
    I had to have my front shaft shortened and a new rear shaft made.
    You will also have to cut about 3/8" off of your output shaft. (go slow don't get it too hot. It is hardened and you don't want to take out the temper)
    -I think that's it.

    One tip I can give you is make new studs. Don't use the ones with the kit. They were too short for me. I made new ones about an inch longer and it made it alot easier.
