    Where can i find some replacement bolts for a 205 adapter, the two big bolts where it goes throught the crossmember and mounts to the adapter between the tranny and the 205 t-case?

    I'm sure i can find the bolts i'm looking for at osh, but how about the metal washer thing with 4 tabs? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    Anyone know of a kit with new bolts for the t-case adapter mounts?

    I would think either the junkyard or the dealor for something like that.

    The bolts are regular old 5/8 coarse thread. I dont know about the metal washer thing, they are just flat steel plates with the poly kit I got.

    Metal washer thing with 4 tabs is not a necessity. You can do without those and use regular flat washers in place of them.

    If you've noticed, the aftermarket poly mounts for the t-case don't have the 4-tab washer thingies. Nor do their instructions say to reuse them.

    All those 4-tab washer thingies do is prevent the bolts from backing out. Thats just something Loc-Tite can take care of instead of using the 4-tabs. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    BTW, the bolts are regular grade 8 hardware, in 5/8" and coarse thread. Somewhere around 3" to 4" long (can't remember right now). /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I just used grade 8's with a lockwasher and some blue loctite. My metal tab thing was toast, so I threw it away. Works great.
    Actually, one of my stock bolt was bent a little. Not sure why, but it was hard to remove it (can you say impact) and te new bolt went in much easier.

    They sure are - unless you use loctite or something else to postively lock them. The bolts *will* back out over time. Sometimes rather quickly as I found out the hard way. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    This also happends on the bellhousing crossmember on some 72-older trucks.

    Yeah, use loctite.

    On the bellhousing - I use only RED loctite because those SOBs are a paibn to get to and they LOVE to loosen.

    Hey Ryan, I will be picking up the parts from the TH400 soon I have to go down to SJ within a week to 10 days.
    If you can wait that long I will bring with me the bolts and the cross like washers.
    If you want I can even give you the rubber mounts, dunno how good they are though.
