    Not sure if it's a NP205 or not but i don't think Chevy ever used a divorced 205. The divorced 205 was mainly a Dodge thing IIRC.

    No on the NP200, NP200 had rear drive shaft on same shaft as front drive shaft.

    I think there was a NP202 that was for medium size truck prior to NP205.
    Looks like some sort of drive line brake on it???

    What exactly does "divorced" mean anyway?

    Doesn't connect directly to the transmission, the way you're used to; it has a (potentially very short) drive shaft from the tranny to the t-case input.

    You'd use a 2WD tranny with a U-joint yoke on it, a short shaft, and then this thing.

    Only really useful on loooong trucks, burbs and pickups, especially crewcabs, or if you're doing crazy drivetrain things (dual rear axles or quadruple transfer cases or something.)

    I'm going to agree with Goose on this one. I'm pretty sure it's a NP202, but for some special industrial application. Look at the rear output, it appears to be light duty as compared to the front output, which with that rear cover, is much heavier duty than standard 202/205.
    My guess is it's from a forklift or somesuch that used the rear output to drive a PTO or something, and the front output was for locomotion. That rear cover on the front output has to be for a tapered roller bearing, as opposed to the (relatively) light duty caged needle bearing cover of a 205.

    Thats no 205 allright!! Not a Chevy either, inless it's for a 2 tonner or something bigger. I have some kind of div case that is in my 62, looks nothing like that. Chevy used div cases in all 60-66s, then in 67-72 or so only the 1 tons had a div case. After that it's Intersmashable and Dodge.

    Almost certain thats a NP200 or 201. I am leaning towards a 201. Definitely not a NP202, they have shift rails stacked on top of each other.
