    vss 205


    just picked one of these up, I dont need the 305 but for 50 bucks I couldn't go wrong, anyways how rare are these,


    I was thinking about passing it on but if they are hard to find I might save it for a future project or something.

    I assume these are 89-91 only?:confused:

    its from a 4L80E/205 in '91. since it was only available for 1 year, id think itd be very rare. would be perfect for ifs rigs wanting a bulletproof t-case for a sas

    vss was only in '90-91 rigs with solid axle, ifs rigs started it in '88

    VSS for a 205 was one year, inless yer talking about K-5s and burbs. I have a 90 crew outside with a 400/205 with no VSS.

    Just an FYI for anyone interested in this setup - North West Fab will be fabricating the VSS tailhousing for 205's starting in early 2007.

    I just popped into this tread to see if I could snag one earlier :crazy:

    How interchangable are these tailhousings? Would I be able to put a GM VSS on a divorced Ford 205?

    Apparently the VSS and non-VSS output shafts are identical on the GM app's, so if it can be done with the non-VSS parts, it should with the VSS. Can't see anything else that would be different.

    The VSS 205 also came behind the SM465 in '91 ;)

    The shafts may be the same, but you'd have to press on the tone/reluctor ring thingy.

    You can't get the tone ring from GM either...I may be attempting to pull the ring off of mine, to see if it will even come off.
