    I just pulled the automatic 205 out of my '69 parts blazer to go in my '71(203). Are there any gaskets or other items I should replace before I reinstall it? I don't want to rebuild it as it was working fine in the '69.
    Thanks,

    More than likely, it is not necessary to do anything. If you feel compelled, you could install new output seals, remove-inspect-reseal the tailshaft and other bolted on parts. I personally would clean it up and reinstall it just as it is...seeing as how it works fine.

    Easy. Send it to me and get a different t-case! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Change the oil in it and look for metal flakes. I noticed on mine that the idler gear bearings were chipping and there were chunks of them in the bottom of the case. If the oil looks good you shouldnt have anything to worry about....

    thanks folks! I think I'll just pressure wash it and put it back in. I changed the oil in it a week ago before pulling it and it looked good. It only had approximately 8 miles a year put on it for the last 15 years. It was used as a hunting vehicle only!

    I heard to make your life easy is to attach the front drive shaft before it's inplace.I tried to replace the front u-joints on my 205 equipped 71 Blazer and ended up quitting because there was no room to remove the bolts(tranny and exhaust in place,prob. easy if they're not in place.)
