    Kind of... you have to get a CV type yoke or flange though.

    Since a 78-79 Bronco uses a CV on the rear of an NP205, You could pick up one of these t-cases, and swap the rear output and yoke into your truck. I think it lets you run a 1330 series joint.

    the part I am refering to, accepts two u joints just a coupler sorda thing. I was thinking of ataching it between the yoke and the shaft just needs another u joint. ????? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Noooooo. While it looks like that is all there is to it - there's more.

    Saginaw CV

    The flange and shaft are connected inside the coupler with a funky ball/socket joint. If you ran it the way you're thinking, you'd have the same effect as running a two-piece driveshaft without a support bearing /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    The Spicer version uses a yoke instead of the 4-bolt circular flange. The 78-79 Bronco uses the Spicer type. The yoke is specifically for a CV. A non-CV yoke will not accept The Spicer CV.
    Spicer CV

    That's about it for factory rear CV's. Othwise you can check out these guys:

    I did this before I bought my High Angle CV to my np203 with the fixed yolk. I took a cv from the front and adapted studs to the cv so it would slide onto the fixed yolk and house the first CV U-joint. I retubed the shaft and used it for about 6 months with good success. I imagine it would be a bit more difficult to adapt it to a slip yolk though but possible none the less with a little wleding, drilling and tapping.

    I am dealing with a 208 t-case, and I guess a 1350 slip yoke out the rear, you can see how much is out in my pics on web shots, look in the new engine section. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
