I have a 1986 sm465 4spd with a np208 t-case,I need as short a driveline as possible.
My problem is the tail length on the 208,what transfer case would be shorter,
or is there an adapter to move the t-case closer to the trans.

Thanks.

I have a 205 that would be shorter and came of a 4 spd.

Would the driveshaft flanges/spline be the same?
Would my shifter work?
If so how muchie??

the output shaft will be too long on your 465 to adapt to a 205 just get a 465/205 combo cause they are fixed yoke most of the time therefore shortening the rear tailshaft assembly by 4" or more

or you can convert your 208 to a fixed yoke

the 465 for a 205 is a coarse 10 spline, the one for the 208 is a fine 28 spline i believe, your options r get a 465 to a 205, or slip yoke eliminator kit the 208, personally for the price of the sye, id find a 465 n 205 for damb near the price of the sye.plus the gear driven 205 is stronger than the chain driven 208 and yes the front drive shaft flange is the same 4 bolt pattern, as for the rear i have only seen one 205 with a rear slip yoke, the rest have alll been a fixed yoke

208s are pretty tough, people use them as doublers.. only issue is they are aluminum case.

205s are bulletproof and are usually fixed yoke as you say, only downfall is the 1.9:1 lowrange vs the 208's 2.3~:1

Oh, and if he SYE's the 208 or goes with a 205 he still has to buy another driveshaft.. which is half the cost of the conversion anyway. Easiest method would be to just buy a 465/205 like you say though.

yah i agree bout the 208 being prety tough, nevr actually blown the insides of one up. the case on the other hand ive broken about 3 of them, im waiting for my turbo350 to die,or brake another 208, then im putin in a 465 205 probably gona runa hydrolic clutch tho heard bad thing bout the mechanical linkage

Or he could ditch the 465 and get an older SM420 quite a bit shorter and will bolt up also has a lower first gear the big problem is they are very noisy

Good luck finding one of those! All the cruiser boys buy those things 'cause they are used to spending 500 bucks on a tranny.
