    A friend of mine is giving me a 208 transfer case FREE:D .My question is will it bolt up to my 89 K5 blazer?I obviously have the 700R4 trans.I figure it will bolt up but what all is involved?The 208 came out of a 1986 truck.

    The 89 should have a 241. Why would you want to swap from a 241 to a 208? Unless the 241 is toast, I'd keep it. But it will bolt up, shifters are different and probably the torque rod may need some modifications.

    Should be a straight bolt in. I have an 89 241 case in my 86 K-5.

    did you have to change anything on the '86 chassis to make the '89 241 work?

    Nope, the case was a perfect bolt-in. The crossmember, and transfer case support both fit exactly like they did on the 208. Heck, I didn't even have to adjust the shift linkage....

    You do know like ryan22re said.... the 241 is a better case than the 208 ever thought about being. Just to let you know.

    I agree.....the 241 has a better low range, has an oil pump mechanism instead of a slinger, and you can get a SYE for a 241 (which is why I swapped in one in place of my 208....

    Now we would be having a different conversion if your friend gave you a free 205......

    Does he have anything else worth-while he is parting with?:D
