    You cannot just use a 2wd 465 instead of a 4wd 465 when bolting up to a transfer case can you? Basically they aren't exactly the same are they?

    no you can't the 2wd has a different tail shaft, which means that internally the mainshaft is different. the 2wd tail shaft is longer and depending on the year you might have a different spline count. the tcase adapter should mount up to the back of the 2wd if you want to swap out the main shaft but the 4wd versions are still easy to find and i suggest you go that route.

    case is same yes, but not output shafts

    same deal with all tranny models between 4x2 and 4x4

    4x4 shaft is stubby short becaus of no yoke

    theres many different output shafts, especially for the 465 trans


    think about it!
    its obvious as hell

    I Bought A 2wd 465 At Pnp For 5o Bucks ,and Brought It To A Tranny Guy That Knows 4x4s. He Changed Out The Main Shaft ,bearings And Synchros For 450.00. Worth It Knowing I Had A Good Rebuild. I Also Went A Step Further And Put In A Hydraulic Linkage Out Of An 85 Truck. I Just Got The Pedals , Master Cylinder, And Reservoir Bottle And Bought The Novak Conversion Slave Cylinder And Bracket, And Works Great. Don't Have To Worry About Binding Linkage Anymore ,and It Uses A Toyota Slave Cylinder That Is Way Beefier Than The Gm.

    Thats all well and good. But for me around here I can find a 465/205 combo for $200 sometimes. Already mounted to each other. I was mainly asking for information sake. ;)
