    See if the junkyard will trade you. They did for me.

    if not, it would make a really interesting center piece, or ashtray. but that's if the table could support it

    Just get the parts from a fixed yoke t case from a sm465 trans which are a dime a dozen and convert it. It is only about a 1/2 hour job.

    What is the difference between them? Wouldn't a slip yoke 205 be an easier replacement for a 208 or 241, or is it a totally different animal?

    You'll have to get your driveline redone anyway so you might as well hold out for the fixed yoke. You'll thank yourself when you break your rear driveline and you can still drive.

    I was looking at an 80 model truck with the sm465 205 combo...so this one would have had the fixed yoke rather than slip yoke?

    The '80 shortbox that I used to have had the slipyoke version of the 205. You never know these days, it could have been swapped out.

    An 80 model will not necessarily have a fixed yoke. My truck is an 80 K10 that originally came with a 350/465/205 and it was a slip yoke type. GM started using slip yokes around 79 or 80 so you'd probably do better looking for an earlier case.

    this one is out of an 89 1 ton and is mounted to sm465. and i got the whole truck for the axles and and fuel injected 454 and was going to part out the rest so i was jut wondering if the 205 was worth keeping for later use.
    thanks

    I haven't had any problems with my slipyoke 205. It has been punished alot and hasn't let me down yet. Now that I think about it, it's the only thing in the running gear department that I haven't had to replace or repair. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I own two 1980 K10's, both came with NP205 slip yokes. I bought a 4 speed from an '80 Blazer a few years back, guy threw in the transfer case, it was also a slip yoke. Every NP205 I run across is a slip yoke dammit!

    My 205 had a slip yoke on it when I got it. Later on down the road I found another 205 in a local take-a-part so I picked it up for $100. I robbed the fixed yoke off of it and threw the slip off mine on to it. So I guess I have a $100 fixed yoke kit. But I can sell this other 205 to some one with a 208 as a simple swap in. I ran with the slip for about 3 years though. To swap that rear housing is really easy. If that guy doesn't buy that trans and case let me know I would be interested too, and I can pick it up.
