    O.K. I've finally found a T400 and 205, but the 205 is a slip yoke style. Is there a major disadvantage to the slip yoke and if so can I bolt on a non slip yoke tail housing from another 205.

    Just raid the tail-housing off one of the common 10 spline 205s

    So the tail housing from a 205 that came behind a T350 is what I'm looking for. I remember reading something about the 205's that came behind T400's had stronger output shafts. Is there a difference in output shaft strength on the 205's.

    The 205 from behind an '80 TH350 will also be a slip yoke. What I ment was get a '79 or older 205 from befind an SM465. They are common & cheep. If you want an upgrade get a Ford 205 and use its outputs.
