Hey, I swapped my NP208 for a NP205 in behind my NP435. I need a shift linkage setup. Can anyone steer me in the right direction, for example, what to ask for at the autowreckers. They want years of vehicles and such, I know that there's something out there that had a NP435 and a NP205 at one time or another.

My dilemma is that I have a mount for the NP435, but the link to the tcase that I have is the wrong one and is too long.

Thanks for any insight in advance.

Oh yeah, its a 1985 dodge p/u with stock NP435 and a 1993 NP205 originally from a dodge p/u.

my 1984 W350 came with a NP435 and a NP205.

i have a 205 from an 85 dodge i'll sell for $100
make sure that the 93 one is the right input spline count , i have heard the diesel ones were larger spline than the gas engine ones

late ones were 29 spline and a chevy fig8 pattern 205 case. so real oddball.
dunno what dodge used prior to that but I recall ?23 splines? in other dodge cases. the dodge shaft I used in my ford np435 was 23 spline from a 208 application

JKW twin stick kit is the cool way to go.

I already swapped. Everything fit fine. It was from a gas engined truck mated to a NV4500.

Just need linkage.

I'll see if the linkage in my 79 W200 is the same, if it is I'll let you know.
