Ok so the kid who bought the wrong axle and then found out he had a dana 60 now has blown his transfer case. He has a 208 in it.... my question is this (and thanks for all the help lately) if he puts a 205 in, will it bolt up to the tranny no prob? and will he have to change driveshafts?

the truck is a 1985 chev 3/4ton.....

jesus that kid is hard on his shit eh hahaha a 205 will only work with another 27 spline or 32 spline transmission so if he has a th350 it should bolt on with the right parts if its a sm465 or th400 it would need to be a 32 spline np205 i would just search castanet should be able to find another 208 for 100$

wow thx again for the help :) it is a standard so it must be the sm465 ... so would this 208 work? looks like a different mounting plate than what he has so I am assuming it's for the t350?

can he take the end piece (sorry for lack of better word haha... adapter maybe?) and put it on an auto 208 so that it will fit his sm465? thx for the help btw

ok possibly swapping adapters could work onto that 208 but make sure to measure how long the input shaft is on his old 208 and compare it to that 208and also check the spline count on the input shafts and make sure his isnt a 27 spline and that your students isnt a 32 spline if its the same then i would just put his 465 adapter onto the case and throw it in and before you throw it in i would make sure you seal up that case good they have issues with leaking lots of atf and if you can prevent that then all the better for the future but if I were him i would be looking to swap a 465/205 combo into and just be done with it lol prob fine that whole combo for 250$ or so on this forum if you post it up in the wanted.

ok ya so we have the tcase off and left the adapter on the truck. It's a 32 count spline as you said bc it's the sm465. so now to measure the input shafts on the 2 cases. awesome!

yup measure and count the splines on the input of the one you found and make sure its the same length and spline count and it should just bolt up

I got a
74 sm465/203
race track pattern 205 course spline, slip yoke
And a th400/203
If any on that helps you..
Oh I also have a np241.. Direct bolt in swap for the 208 and its stronger

U can put a 205 behind it but u need the adapter from a later model 1 ton truck and the round pattern 205. This adapter is not the same as the one u have on it currently its slightly longer and has a relief for the 205 linkage. To bad I didn't have my setup installed already I have a 208 that I won't need any more

ok so no luck on the 208 on castanet bc it's a 27spline input and we need a 32. rideharder thanks for the options, but it's the circle bolt pattern not the racetrack and I think he would rather spend the $ on a 205 than have 203. as for the 241, what is did it come out of/bolt up to?

85chevy thanks for the info I will keep that in mind when we are looking for a 205 :)

Is something broken or is 4 wheel not working?

the casing is blown into bits in a couple spots, sounds like a baby rattle and all kinds of things are falling out haha

i would just look for a 465/205 combo post it up on the wanted and im sure u can score one for cheap

theb241 is out of a 90 Chevy 1500 with a 350. Should be 32 spline and run the 6bolt pattern from behind a 4l60/700r4. I'll split em and make sure
I rarely come on here so text 250 307 six86six for more info

They are not really stronger its more or less the same transfer case as the 208 but ur wrong that is a 27 spline since the 32 spline was behind T400, 4L80, and 5 speed

I never made it out to check, not sure if it was a 4l80 it 4l60. Sorry

Im that kid, thanks for all the help! [cheers] so if I buy this combo I still have to make sure my front/rear drive shaft spline count matchs up right?

No that combo would require u to swap from a standard transmission to an automatic which will require changing a bunch of things.

I have a 208 that came out of an 86 4spd chev. It's wrapped up in the back of a truck under snow right now but I can check the spline count this weekend for you if interested.It may be a straight bolt in for ya cheap[cheers]

I can tell yea right now if that was off a 4 speed its the right one

Norm I think he should take you up on that for sure! I will let him know when I see him today in case he hasn't checked the site. how much are you looking for and can you pm me or zack (dirtman4x4) your number so he can get in touch? thanks!

if it had a 32spline 208...why not grab the 27 spline 208 and swap in your 32 spline input?
I cant see that blowing up.

also look into WHY the case is shattered. they dont just break.
chances are his driveshafts are wrong length and bound up pushing into the soft aluminum case

I agree sounds like driveshaft is to long which pushed on the tcase causing the case to break
