    I broke the output shaft on my 241 and I am wondering witch tcase to drop in. I was thinking of puting a short shaft on the 241, but I don't know if it will be strong enough. I also have a 203 and the spacer to mount to the 4L60. Someday I will put a doubler in but I have run low on cash /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif and still need a 60 and 39's by winter. I want the tcase to stand up to the 39's and about 400hp. Let me know what you guy's think.

    go with the 203 if you already have it You'll just end up breaking that aluminum t-case again I'm going through the same thing right now with my 208 (# 4 since I put it back together)

    If I do go with the 203, should I convert it to part time or just run it in the lock position. It will probally be in there for about a year befor I get the money for the doubler. I do alot of highway driving and I drive to work and school every day. Thanks
