    I was driving down my country roads, and I passed a pile of steel scrap that had a "FREE" sign on it. At a glance, I saw a 14bff, so I stopped, took the sign off, then ran home for the trailer. In about 63 seconds after getting home the trailer was hooked-up with my cherry picker ready to go. The g/f barely had time to get in the truck and we were off.

    As I pulled up with the trailer, I could see this scrap was more of a gold mine than I thought, with a 400/203 combo buried in the middle. Now, to load-it-up with just the g/f helping. The gravel driveway made it especially difficult to move my cherry picker, but eventually, we got, a 14bff, 400/203 combo, driveshafts and some steel scrap loaded.:crazy: :D

    You gotta love those sign's that say "FREE".:bow: :bow:

    I can't complain.:D
    The axle has 373's with a gov-loc.
    I'm sure I'll find someone that wants it.

    If you are serious I might go for that. Do you have the whole setup for auto to manual? My buddy is in Petrolia, Ontario and I'll be visiting him within the month. PM me!

    Now that I have a 400 version 203, I'm not interested in selling.
    I need the both of them, one for a doubler, and one to mate to my 4L80E for my tow rig.

    I hear the 400/205 combo's getting rare, good luck.

    Of course I do...
    I would suggest putting something in the wanted/selling/trade section.

    LOL....when the lady came out to thank me for taking the stuff...
    I asked if there was any other junk I could haul for her....
    (Hoping there was a d60 in the back yard)
    She said she'd let me know.
