429 in a 351w bronco - Transfer case?

Hi All,

Another question regarding swap to be... I realized I need to get a C-6 Bigblock tranny.. since I am doing that.. should I stick with the stock NP-208? or get a NP-205. I am pretty sure I can use either.. I heard the NP-205 is the stronger of the two..

Depending on what year tranny you get, the 205 will be the stock t-case. Either way, go with the 205. It is a stronger T-case and you don't have to worry about the chain.

Did it go together nice and easy? You did something wrong.Will have to do it again.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Thanks Dave,

One question TCI asks when ordering the C-6 big block is whether you have a 5" or and 8" spacer between the Xfer Case and Tranny. Do you know what year 351M/400/460's had the NP-205 behind it?

I know they used the 205 in '78 & 79. Not sure of what other years. Tonight I'll measure my tran/t-case adaptor for you. I'm running a '78 460, C6 and np205.

Finally remembered to measure the adapter. It is 8 3/4 inches total length

Ok Dave, Thanks.... my 208 has 5 inch spacing... I am just going to use my NP208 when I do swap.. I don't want to deal with the cross-member issues and changing of the drive shafts and creating the linkage for the shifter... I heard that the NP208 takes a pretty good beating.. besides.. I do have a spare 208 if I blow that one...

Thanks !!

Just my $0.02 worth, I put a 460 in my 86, and destroyed the NP208 in about 300 miles. I just got finished bolting a NP205 in my truck, and I will need new driveshafts, but I also converted to twin sticks, and have a T/C with much more stamina.

Well.. haha.. I plan on using the 208 for now... afterall.. dropping the 460 in is costing me enough!! lol.. I also decide to junk the 429 crank and put a 460 crank in.. I got a nodular iron one from a 1971 engine for $75... with balancer!
