    If you can measure from the holes on the side of the 203 up to the 2nd hole up from the bottom on the passenger side bellhousing, I can check if one I have is long enough for you. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    so this brace we are talking about here, along with the one that goes to the frame off the t-case would really help a bit?

    Hi, I think it's 31" from the last hole to the second one up on the bell housing.
    ______________________
    *----*--------------------------------*
    last^ hole
    The two holes are 3-3/8" center to center.

    Thanx,
    Bill C.

    I guess I only have the "L" bracket on the x-case, not the rod.

    Sorry...

    Bill, I checked another tranny/t-case combo I have with the brace still bolted on and it's mounted to the lower bottom hole on the bellhousing.

    I measured from the outside of the bar on the bellhousing side to the first inside hole of the t-case side and it comes to around 29 3/4".

    Check your measurement again, but from the bottom hole on the bellhousing. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
