so a manual 205 would or could work on this set up.... hummm. a friend has a 205 from a manual maybe i can finger f it and see if it would work . now i was noticing that the output comes out from the trans is a good 6in long with the the adapter plate still on trans. wonder if that shaft would be too long to spline into the 205. their is also a support bearing in the adapter plate on the ouput. would it still work if i changed adapter plate and took bearing out? or would it be a time bomb if the case were to work with out changing the output shaft. im learning alot of things by just seeing if they work together but its nice to ask someone . so i have just took the adapter plate off trans and resealred it. put t-case in and did trans service. im trying to get the stock vacume set up working. i made sure the actuatior workd free on the case , have to get vacum to it and see what it does..    any more info would be nice . just want 2wd and low range is that to much to ask??? haha

my output is a 10 spline shaft and it is a th400 every book and place iv asked saids it is.... saids division of gmc on the pan. im some of my research finding that gm made a th400 with a mopar bell housing. the t-case has only 4 bolts that bolt to the adapter plate. thes did come with dana 20 t-case but only up til 1973. so either i just put it back together  and rock it in full time or put a tbi 350 in it and get it over with.... another delema is can i permitly lock it in 4x4 by making it stay in 4x4 and just unlock my hubs to get 2wd or will it burn the case up??? it has a vacume actuator on t-case to lock the center of t-case to actually make it 4wd and not quardra trac.. every wheeler i seen that was a fsj has a chevy 350 in it .... probly why they do that so makes drive train set up easyer

trying to swap in the 1987 th400 and 205 that i have . fsj has a th400 and junk stock full time t-case ( no low range). on the old 400 the bellhousing is rounded and the starter mounts in the bellhouseing. the newer th400 is the chevy style and the bellhousing is more triangle shaped and starter mounts to the engine . i cant just put the 205 on the old style trany the output shaft is diff. was trying to avoid to take them apart and swap output shafts even if they would be the same and try and do it... anyway im looking for a 1979 th400/ 205 info, or set up out of a chevy 1/2 ton of that year.any info would be nice to see if the bellhousings were the same on the older models.

got my th400 set to swap in or what i thought would just go in. found that the bellhousing is different all together and where the starter mounts is in the bellhousing on the old one ,the  new (to me) one would be the chevy style that would bolt to the engine. i need a 79' th400 . sux . it dont look like a tf 727 tranny because the trany has the right oil pan and is a th400. wouldnt happen to know anyone that has a old th400 and 205 do you?Huh?

if the basic harness is close dont see why you couldnt make it work.... if the plugs for 02 sensors are the same and engine controls (tps and ignition.ecm ...ect) could you take harness out of   the donor?? or is it totally different?

having trouble finding a locker for my fsj. i dont want to weld it and cant spend $400 or more on a locker. i am runnig a stock dana 44 front and rear. have looked at mini spools but would like a lock- right or something close to it. have contacted many places with no luck..... any ideas? Angry

even if i just run a single u-joint at the t- case and put the cardan at the rearend that wont work? just like putting the driveshaft in backwards. i can try using the shaft with it in with cardan joint on t-case and see how bad it vibrates. live and learn....

im swaping in a np205 t- case into my fsj. my stock rears are offset to the pass side. now the 205 has the rear output coming straight off the rear and not off to the pass side like the stock case . now it's  taking the shaft and moving it over about 6 in from right to left....it is possible to put a cardan joint on the rear axle u-joint and not on the off the t-case  like normal???  i think that it will eat up u- joints if i  put the cardan off the t- case . puts rear joint at a harsh angle towards the center if left that way.
