Deuce-and-a-half Transfer Case Question

I have a chance to buy a duece transfer case (NSN 2520-00-001-7855) but don't know if it's worth doing. I know it is divorced, has the front input driveshaft, and a driveline brake. My NP208 behind a TH400 is sounding bad and I'd like to find an NP205. I've heard of 2.5 ton t-cases being used as doublers but don't know if this thing would work. I'l hopefully be getting a new driveline and have plenty of length to add one (truck is a longbed). Mostly curious but if someone has any experience with them, thanks.

Re: Deuce-and-a-half Transfer Case Question

more than likely they will be air shifted, but there are several different models that came in "2.5 ton" trucks so you might get lucky. most are so big that you'd have trouble getting it under there without a body lift, but i'm sure it's been done, though the 203/205 double probably makes more sense.

Thanks for the sense....

I checked it out in person. HUGE and air shifted. I think I'll start looking for a 203 that mates to a TH400 then a 205. It sure seemed like a good deal, glad I asked and looked.

Re: Thanks for the sense....

AHHHHHHHHHHHH One of my dream vehicles in life is an M35A2 2.5 ton with the cargo bed and guess what, 2 blocks away an auto a/c shop has one out front for sell with every option I wanted[img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. Worst part is it came right when I have no money and it just had a re-power done and he wants hardly anything for it, sigh...

They go for pretty cheap here in Hawaii. Problem is, it would cost too much to ship back. Bummer. I agree, they'd be fun to own.

Re: Thanks for the sense....

WOW, did he repower it or is it military work? i read somewhere that the military was slowly replacing all the old white diesels with Cats, which engine is it exactly? i've been thinking about a deuce lately too, because it's big, badass, and will pull anything. fast? no. but i could build any offroad vehicle i wanted and just drive that beeotch up on the flatbed and head to the trail, no big deal. i cant figure out why they are limited to 55 mph though? is that because of the gearing, tires, what? i like the 5 tons that have 6 ~48" michelins instead of 10 DOT tires... looks WAY meaner and 4 less tires to mess with. i'd probably drop the middle axle out too, especially if i got the 5 ton version, because it'd help gas mileage and then i'd only have 4 tires to mess with [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] they are cheap as a mah****a on govliquidation.com but i dont even know if they run... most of them have been classified as "unservicable or uneconomical to service" so i dont know if it'd be worth buying. they are very badass trucks though, no doubt about it!

Re: Thanks for the sense....

Yeah, I would love one, and first thing I would do is put the Michelins on it[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Yay, I just found the add in the paper for it, appears that it is a 5 ton... It has the pto winch and everything in front. Not sure on actual engine part #. I havent talked to the guy that has it for sell, I just saw it sitting there on Sunday and looked it over. I had to mop up the drool though... Man, I wish I had the cash.
