    I want to get a NP-205 transfer case. Being on a budget, I'll have to get a used one, most likely a salvage yard part. I fully intend to rebuild it befor installing. Could anyone list for me what vichiles I could get a NP-205 out of that'll work in a 76 K5 Blazer. I understand some ones in Dodges can be used by changing the input shaft or something like that.

    Assuming you are keeping your TH350, a 1980 K5 or 1/2 ton would be a bolt in. Just make sure you get the adaptor.

    An '80 3/4 or 1 ton will get you the TH400 & NP205.

    Finding a 400/205 is going to be pricy. The 350/205 is kinda hard to find in a bone yard. I am going to say that your output shaft on your current trans is different then what a 205 used. The 700r4 will require a new output shaft for the 205 so that swap will run some $$ too. Your best bet is to find a 350/205 combo complete. Not sure but most likely your driveshafts will need work too.

    The only problem with the 80' 205's is of course the slip yoke. That wouldn't be too bad if you were running a 208 (which has a slip yoke) right now but you already have the slip in the shaft so it would prob. be nice to keep it that way. Check early 70's 1/2 ton for 205's. Its just kind of a gamble some have them and some don't.
