    Ive got an 84 M1008, TH400 and 208 all stock. What is needed for a Stak 2 speed to go in. Crossmember mods? Also anyone know the input splines? And will drive shaft with my slip yoke still work? Thanks

    Uh 400 is 32 spline, Crossmember needs to be changed most likely custom, Your driveshafts will not work you will need a 2 piece shaft front and rear as both outputs are fixed yoke. And if you are going with a Stak why not a 3 speed price dif is not that much.

    I beilive the 3 speed is about 700 more and 2 speed is plenty going from the 208. So nothing will "bolt in" like lomax 205? I was afraid of the driveshafts, but custom mount isnt a problem I just really dont like 208, it is always grinding lately and wont engage in 4hi or low, or stay in gear unless I hold it plus 2 speed is nice.

    The Stak to my knowledge has a round pattern. You might need an adapter to mount it to the 400. 32 spline is an option for the stak. The problem with your 208 is more than likely a linkage adjustment problem or maybe a bent shift fork. Shift forks are about $27 dollars. And also your 208 is a 2 speed case Hi and low so a 2 speed stak is the same stronger and deeper gears but still 2 speeds.

    The Stak is the way to go. Since you are running a 208 you can re-use your adapter and all you will have to do is egg out one of the holes a little bit, no biggie.

    What about a Lomax 205, Would this be any easier aside from new shafts?

    You will need to switch the adapter to go to a 205. You will need a round pattern 205 with the long 32 spline input to bolt to a th400 that had a 208 behind it. I think if you have to by the 205, Lomax kit, 205 rebuild kit, shifter, and adapter it will most likely cost about the same or more then the Stak.
