    ...cut and tap style slip yoke eliminators for the 208 t-case. I did this for the 207 in my Heep and it works awesome. Seems like this could be done for the 208 as well. /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    There's a member here that's built a fixed yoke NP208...using the rear half of a Dodge 208 case.

    Re: Why doesn\'t anyone make...

    still no answer to my question. Is it possible to drill and tap the output, then bore the yoke so a bolt can pass thru? Seems that one of the fabricators that hang here could do this no problem. That person could make a killing if it worked.

    Re: Why doesn\'t anyone make...

    As far as I know Andy bolted up the rear half of a Dodge 208 case to his Chevy 208. The Dodge's came fixed yoke from the factory. This would seem like the least expensive way to get the fixed yoke on a 208.

    If you are looking for custom type work to modfiy your Chevy 208 you need a machinist not a fabricator. I believe Jesse at High Angle Driveline was looking into a SYE kit for the 208, but for whatever reason decided it was either not economically feasible or ???.

    I'd look into swapping the Dodge rear half, or option 2 is swapping in a 241 and adding a SYE kit, or option 3 is to swap in a 205. Option 4 is to pay through the nose for machining and R&D time to make your own SYE kit for your 208...

    Re: Why doesn\'t anyone make...

    What yr dodge stuff is needed? And what parts are needed? I may be able to find one throgh one of the salvage yards that has the front stuff blasted off from a hard front impact. (hit hard right+knock axle back to compress slip yoke+blasts off front output half of case=cheap.) /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Re: Why doesn\'t anyone make...

    pm K10ANDY....he'd know for sure. I imagine it would be early 80's like the Chev application. I know the newer Dodges used the 231HD T-case (1/2 ton), but I'm not sure when the change was.

    Re: Why doesn\'t anyone make...

    OK YOU ASKED FOR IT ! /forums/images/icons/wink.gifok here goes guys .
    first u need a good chevy 208 .
    then u need the ( rear half , the tailhousing , and the mainshaft ) from a dodge 208 . there are about 3 things that need to be done the dodge parts . first the rear half needs a new shoft rod support , u should get a new piece of aluminnum mahcined and tig welded to it . the dodge case lacks a support rod bolt hole so if u are worried u can cut the one off a a chevy case and weld it on . then if i was going to do mine again i would move / drill and tap and new fill hole , now i just put studs in the front and fill it before i put it on . check out this link for a picture of the parts needed and the finished case.


    after you do all this swap the chevy parts onto the dodge shaft except for the oil pump and speedo gear .

    that might work but the dodge way seems to be a better way makes for a longer rear driveline.

    tRusty,
    Jesse could not get the parts, they have all been discountinued. So he came up with this as a solution for the guys running the 208's;
    [​IMG]
    This slip yoke set up has splines that run the full depth of the yoke, and allow people to run Jesse's bullet proof One Ton CV setup without having to switch to a fixed yoke.

    Thanks for clearing that up Jeff. I knew there wasn't gonna be a kit...I was just unsure of the reason.

    There is no way you could drill and tap into the end of the output shaft. It would have to be done previous to the heat treating, once it's been heat treated it's harder than any drill bit or tap would be.

    A two fluted carbide end mill should cut it. Tapping it would be another story...
