    Why do I never see an SYE for a 208? Does anyone make one, if not, why? If someone does make one, who and how do I contact them? Thanks:bow:

    No such beast. Several people have used dodge/ford parts, but I don't know the specifics. I am currently looking for a dodge 208 to see if I can make it work.

    I did find one a while back, but instead of just replacing the output shaft, as most kits do,it required you to drill and tap your output shaft. I just was not by on that approach. Thanks though ryan22re.

    A 241 huh??? All I have ever had to deal with was my old 205's. But since I bought my 86 i have been messing with this chain thing. If I could find a good divorced 205 I would get rid of the 208 and use that. Does anyone know where there are any divorced 205's for sale?

    Tom Woods makes an SYE for the 208; havent seen any good pics yet on their site but I spoke to Tom and he said they do offer the product. I am going to order it here in a week or two; ill let you all know how it is. It is roughly 700 bucks with a core, this including the shaft which is a good deal I think.

    LINK I was browsing on there yesterday and seen mention of it but didn't see any pictures. I am considering it as well. The selling point for me would be that it comes with a shaft.

    Yeah there are no pics, which sucks; and there is actually no other info on the site specifically about it. Just call them up to get all the info you need. It will be a little longer than I had anticipated till I get it ordered. The rearend just hasnt had time to find its way under the truck...

    208 SYE kit from Tom Woods available

    Got an email from Tom Woods that the SYE kit for the 208 has been available for about a year and starts at $600 and goes up depending on options. And yes, it comes with new shaft.:D

    He didn't say in the email, just that I would have to call him to work out the details. I believe his phone number is on his website.

    Is it me, or am I missing something here? Isn't a 241 better (stronger) than a 208? Seems to me someone could find a 241 and install a SYE for $700. You could sure as heck convert over to 205 for that kind of $ Please educate me.
    Thanks, Jimbo

    *Hijack*

    Off topic, but does anyone know off hand how long the slipyoke is on a 208 shaft? Seems like after my 14ff swap I have more yoke showing than before, and it makes no sense...Please tell me its like a foot long, that way I dont need a new shaft yet, lol.

    *End Hijack*
