Okay. My plan is to drop motor, tranny, and transfer case in one piece into my '84 after the cab is installed to simplify it. Without the front clip this is plenty do-able. The only problem seems to be the shifter for the 4 speed. I can remove the 205 shifter no problem, but it appears the 4 speed's shifter doesn't come off without removing the top cover. Since my truck was originally equipped with a 700R4 and an NP 208, it doesn't have the easily-removable bolt-in tranny hump and I don't have one for it (nor do I want to go through the work of installing it). So, any bright ideas on how to do this? I was thinking I could remove the top cover from my 465, put the motor/tranny/xfer in, and then install the top cover, then put up the tranny xmember. I don't exactly know what I'm getting myself into by removing that top cover though, and I'm hoping there's an easier way (but I'm thinking there isn't. I'm also wondering how I'd tighten the top cover down after doing this. Any bright ideas? I'm open to suggestions.
