    Go to a dealership, order the relucter ring off a 91 4wd crew cab (only year for it) and take the VSS sensor off your case. Drill and tap the tail housing, I believe the vent is on top, already have a hole there anyways to drill out.

    That would be the best,, go to the dealer and buy the ring,
    No one could help me when I did mine,every said to go buy this $300 piece or this $400 piece , no gaurantee that it would work though, so I took the reluctor ring off the 241 and used it, it is the same splines but has to be machine 'skinner ' or thinner to fit in place of the old speed gear,or use a grinder like I did, and then went to Oriellys and bought a nut that would fit on the censor ( 70 cents ) . ground the housing flat and drilled a hole, put the censor through , tapping the housing may work, but the housing is very thin. I have done two others and they all work great.
    So I spent 70 cents and about 1 1/2 ,, along way from $300
    Good luck !

    241

    Consider keeping the NP241. Better low range. That will get you going. If it fails, then consider replacing it. I run a 241 behind a t-400 and a big block and have been happy so far.

    I'd agree. 241 seems to hold up very well, and the hassle of trying to retrofit the VSS to a 205 (reluctor ring isn't available from GM anymore) just doesn't seem worth it.
