    Default Flipping a NP205 to drivers side output????

    Can this be done?
    Can you change the output of a 205 from passenger side drop to drivers?
    If its possible someone please tell me what I need to do to make this work!

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Get an NP205 for a Ford, those are driver's side drop from 73-79 at least.
    Just my $.02

    Yeah, get an NP435/NP205 combo from a late 70's Ford, and bolt it to the back of your AMC/Jeep V8, or L6 with a 1980-87 Jeep T-176 bellhousing (from a CJ, or FSJ).

    That way you'd have a passenger side drop 205, mated to a 6.69:1 1st gear, super strong 4spd.
    Since someone is finally making a low range for the 205, you could get that and have the best of both worlds (but no OD), for cheap junkyard prices.

    Ok here is my setup, SBC 350/SM465/205.
    I have all of it sitting in my garage ready to go in. I am just wanting to know if I can flip the transfer case and so I can use jeep axles.

    So if I go get a 205 out of a ford will that bolt to my tranny right away?
    Let me know what you think.

    This I really don't know.
    Some T-cases do change design when they're used by different manufacturers, so it may not interchange.
    You'd have to ask a 'real' expert that question

    Real expert?
    O.K.....

    Look at your tranny output shaft. It should be 10 spline and around 1 1/8" in diameter. Get one of the clutch alignment tools with the same specs and take it with you when you check out the Ford cases.

    Any particular reason you want to run Jeep axles? If I was installing that combination I would go with passenger side drop Chevy axles.

    I know I prefer a drivers side drop T-case, so I could run a high pinion Ford D44.
    There's also less exhaust hassles (edit... I guess this would matter if he was keeping the stock engine ).

    I agree; I am running a Ford HP44. But he had said Jeep axles and I can't see any benefit in that.
