    Rear is back on its sprung weight with a 4" stretch and 2"'s lower. Also bent up a rad hoop to follow the CJ grill and half ass mocked it in.

    So. Again, price was right. Jimmy Rockspyder had this collecting dust in his attic for a buggy build he was gonna do about a decade ago. Core is 24.5 x 17.5 x 1.5. Think it'll do the trick? Still gonna be a tough squeeze height wise but i'll test fit tonight. Thanks again Jim!

    So I cut and burnt together my redneck side dump manifolds. Plan is to run them in between frame and boatsides. Should work good and the price was right. Lol









    And then I ran into some complications. Had an adapter but it turned out to be a th400 to something that won't work. Grabbed 2 more adapters that I'm almost positive are th400 to np205. Also grabbed a next 205. Problem is there is only one way the adapter will bolt to the tranny. Any variation and the holes are way off. In the proper position I'm going to have to cut the mounting footings off. No big deal. On the tcase side there is only one way it fits with all holes lined up and it's a no go. A few ways with only one hole off and a couple ways with 2 holes off. Guess which way I need it to go. Fawk. Lol. Holes have just a hair showing so I suppose I could drill and tap but that's a bit sketchy. Or either weld up case and drill and tap or weld up adapter and drill and tap. Both are some flavour of cast. Think it's a snow day tomorrow so I'll likely make an executive decision and go for it.

    All holes lined up



    4 of 6 six lined up the way it needs to go.



    And of course a wee cut to make for the shift rail as well. Also may have to make a spacer and or trim some tranny shaft but haven't got that far yet.



    Could of swore I read somewhere about all this working but apparently not. Guess I'll be the guinea pig.

    That is what I was afraid of. Which is why I was mentioning the clocking ring a couple of pages back.

    I'm not sure if the OD of the flange on the adapter is large enough to accommodate re-drilling of the holes on a different orientation. Or, you could try drilling and tapping the case. That may work out better.

    Just need to shift 2 holes over a hair. Would be nice if they were proper off but they only overlap a hair. The adapter is cast of sorts so i think the best course of action will be to weld up the holes, grind smooth and redrill the 2. Also couldn't test fit perfectly onto the tranny because of the feet on the adapter but i made a cardboard cut out which showed the holes lining up in the one orientation. Fingers are crossed the lips of tranny and adapter with the seal mesh proper. Also the adapter doesn't fit over the i guess i'd call input cover/caseing. This is where i saw buddy make a plate to space but its so close i'd almost think a dusting with the grinder might sort it out. Worst case at least i have some redundancy kickin around for trial and error. Fun stuff. lol. In the city for a couple days so i'll get back to it later in the week.

    So I got sneaky. The old adapter I had ended up being the same bolt pattern. I had just wrote it off cause the holes didn't line. So, use it cause it's a slimmy. 2.5" vs 4". An inch and a half ain't much but puts my rear shaft at 34"'s. Giggity.

    Weld up the bad holes



    Try every bit in the shop and realize they're all dull. Bust out ol reliable. FYI plasma'n cast is messy and hateful. Don't forget shift rail notch.



    6 bolt perfect fit except that input cover housing getting intrusive.

    1/4" spacer sorts it.









    Then a little foot trim to clear tranny. 4L80 has a bit more meat then th400........plus I need to find out how thick the next spacer is cause of some more ID OD first world problems.

    ......and then on to the next spacer









    Tail end needs to come down a hair but fits like a glove



    Front driveshaft line looks pretty happy!



    Gonna have to shave a little tranny shaft but I won this round!

    Lots of finagling to make that work. Glad to see the t-case bolted to the tranny.

    My only concern is the indexing/pilot ring not fitting in the tranny. Do you think i'll have any issues with bolts loosening or busting off or premature bearing wear? I see nwf sells one that mates it proper with the pilot. Some people machine it down. Maybe a grinder dusting. Lol

    NWF



    Adapter pilot



    Could also tie some supports off the bellhousing bolts with some old jk arms and some plate.



    I of course will be building a support for the 205.

    Hmmmm.

    I would absolutely be concerned with the lack of a hub pilot on the adapter. Long term damage is certainly possible if the transmission and t-case shafts are not held centered with each other.

    I hate to admit it but some careful grinding probably could get you reasonably close. If it were me, I would probably just machine it. You should be able to have that chucked up in a lathe without too much trouble.
