dual transfer cases

does anybody know the combined length of a chevy 205 married case to a divorced 205 case? looking to put a dual case set up in my rig behind a 465 with a 350 cid engine? possibly the length from the motor mounts to the yoke of the rear divorced case or the length from the front of the engine to the yoke?

Re: dual transfer cases

Why not use a 203 and save a hundred pounds? Plus you will not have to worry about the front output of the first 205 spinning when in 4.

Re: dual transfer cases

All you use off the 203 is the range box for a doubler

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>The 203 is way lighter than the 205. the 205 is a cast iron all gear case, it's a beast. I assume that the reason that he is not going with a 203 is because you can get a divorced 205, eliminating the need for any special adaptors and such. The "poor man's doubler" as it were. I've thought about doing the same thing, but I think on a swb truck the driveline angles would blow.

Re: dual transfer cases

a friends blazer (blazer chassis, toyota cab) has a 205/203 doubler and his front and rear drive lines are interchangeable so he only carriers one spare. Also a machine shop here is gonna build are adaptors for TH400 to 205 to 203 for pretty reasonable

Re: dual transfer cases

I'm really looking into the poor man's doubler here. Does anybody know the length of a divorced 205 from the beginning of the intermediate shaft to back of the yoke? I know the 205 married is 17.5 inches to the yoke. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: dual transfer cases

I know where there is a divorced 205 in a truck right now. I'll try to get over there tonight and take a measurement for you. I'll let you know tomorrow what I come up with.

Sorry, didn't get to it last night. We're in the process of moving, so I never know when I'll have a free minute. But I WILL get the info for you.
