    In my area, as cheap as $450 but usually not... and on average $700 for a good usable combo. I've sold a good used TH400/205 with drivelines and all parts for $700, and the latest one I sold the 400/205 along with frame cab and nose clip of the truck for $700.

    My last working condition 400/205 with fixed yoke I bought was $300 and I bought a round pattern 205 for $150.

    the adapter will go for as much as $200-230 just itself. last one i looked at on ebay went for $237 and had 32 bidders. kinda hard to find in some area's of the U.S.

    The value is in the adapter and the 205. Check out the cost of the input gear, case boring, and rear fixed-yoke output.

    Nobody pays for TH400 cores anymore.

    slip yoke? fixed yoke?

    If the trans pan/seal looks like its been leaking, there's a good chance its been run low a few times and shortened its lifespan significantly. (I speak from experience. :doah:)

    check for evidence of leaks, and see if can you shift it easily.
