    do you know what t case
    from the front of the truck going back they are
    np208/241
    2hi
    4hi
    N
    4lo

    np 203
    lo loc
    lo
    N
    hi
    hi loc

    np205
    4 lo
    N
    2 hi
    4 hi


    the auto trans will most likely have a 203, and a stick will have a 205. i through the 208/241 in there for SEARCH material /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    That is not correct for the NP205. It is as follows:

    Dash
    4Lo
    N
    2Hi
    4Hi
    Seat

    Here are a couple shots of an NP205.

    In 1973 you really only have 2 choices, the NP203 or NP205. The NP205 is easy to ID because it has the small circular cover with 3 bolts holding it on.

    if you have a 2wd position then you have a 205, if no 2wd position on the handle knob then ytou have a 203,

    203 have positons listed on the knob only, 203 trucks do not have manual hubs, they are permanently in 4x4 mode all the time no matter what position you put the shifter into, except neutral of course

    203 cases are iron just like 205 but the 203 rear output housing extension is aluminum

    I have pics posted showing the linkages in all 4 different positions on the 205. It's in the tranny conversion album. Also a lot of pics of the case, you should be able to recognize things if you study it for a while.
