Driveline help

I'm finally doin the new driveline in my F250 1 ton. I'm not sure if the Jasper trans comes with the converter or not but to be on the safe side i'd like to get a little info before i buy one(if need be). I'll find out if it's included tommorrow when i order the motor and trans.


1990 F250
GVWR 8600lbs
351W
C6
Undecided on a transfer case i have 2
1345 and a 1356
a NP208 is available also
3.55 gears(for now)
285/75 R16 (for now)
Dana 60 front
Sterling 10.25FF rear

I'm not gonna designate a purpose to the truck as far as what kind of wheeling i'm gonna do. I'm gonna play wherever i end up.


Theres mud around the corner from my house and Paragon (rocks) around 3 hours away. There both on opposite ends of the wheeling world so i want to wind up somewhere in the middle.

There's a converter shop about 3 blocks from my house so i'll head up there to see what they say tommorrow.

Transfer case.

Like i said i have 2 here and a third available
1345 fixed yoke....have
1356 slip yoke....have
NP208 fixed yoke.....80Bronco has. He'll be at the swap meet this weekand and i can get it from him there.

Preferences?
I'm leaning towards the 1345 cuz of the fixed yoke

Is any of the 3 stronger than the next?

Thanks

Re: Driveline help

i like the 1345, its a pretty heavy duty case, and has the lowest low-range of the three. But it is fixed yoke, so id think youd have to have a driveshaft with a double-cardan on it.

Re: Driveline help

No double cardan cuz of the wheelbase. Just a slipshaft.

I'll need a new driveshaft anyway cuz the E4od is so damn long and heavy. I dropped it on my arm and was pinned under it under the truck for a half hour.

1345 it is.

Re: Driveline help

How do you know i didn't cut my arm off???? You can tell you're neighbors hate you when they call their kids outside to have a family picture in front of your flailing limbs. [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img] No biggie. Anyway the trans comes with the converter already so thats one problem solved.
