[img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img] This is a response to both TxFireman and 83GMCK2500
Before I began this NP205 posting I intitially based my thoughts on this site
- the lower picture looked more like my TC. I then saw 83GMCK2500's recommended site
and it looks more like I have a NP203 possibly.
I couldn't find a 'metal tag' anywhere around the FRT driveshaft. However I did see (perhaps this is what was meant) a ground flat spot on the case itself directly above the FRT driveshatft that had the following "K8H05
I then looked some more and found these numbers above the PTO plate "344268 GM
" and I have not found a website that could decode these numbers yet (still looking. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] )
I didn't realize the NP203 (being chain driven) had a PTO plate. I thought only the gear driven TC's would have a PTO, hence the 205. (AND DON'T MENTION ME SAYING 'I THOUGHT' AS BEING THE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!! HAHAHAHA J/K) It's all in the learning curve I guess!! [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]
I would have imagined there was a conversion kit (if it is the 203 for sure) put into the TC, however I will have to open it up to verify for sure!!
Welp, I appreciate your help to this point, if someone does know what those numbers mean I would be appreciative if ya might pass it along. I know the truck originally came with a 400ci, but as far as the original tranny I am not sure (currently a TH350.)
If you all did catch me in a misguided and misinformed belief (with the wrong ID I was given @ the 4x4 shop) then as a newbie I can say I guess everyone gets one good whack to the new guy [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img] !!! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
(I will change my profile when everything is confirmed!)
