So I tried to put the body back on the frame, but the new t-case sat too high, and the valve covers were hitting the firewall, so I had Summit overnight a 3" body lift...so hopefully this well rectify the situation...but here's my question: The stock t-case was a Dana 20 (any other first genners have one of those?) so I swapped the the tranny/t-case adapter and t-case to a 205. Why did the 205 hit the body? The block is a 502 and it is only the valve covers that are causing the problem...anybody have any ideas? I didn't want to go with the body lift, but I had no choice. (The oil pan is already too close to the front crossmember to lower the transfer case.) Oh well, it isn't really a huge problem anyway... Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was great (mine consisted of an ailment competition amongst the old people...man, that is appetizing) Have a good one. 1970 GMC Jimmy 502HO/SM465/NP205 doesn't run just yet!
