Can I do this?

Can I hook up an NP435 and an NP208 transfer case behind my 360 amc engine? What problems might I have?

Re: Can I do this?

you need a jeep bell housing from a t176 or t150 trans to mount the np435 (ford version). as for the np208 what is it out of? i'm not sure but i think you'll need and adapter and then you might as well get a dana 300.

That 208 is a big sucker that will hang down, I would use something else if it is at all possible...

Re: Can I do this?

Thanks for all the info so far guys, but what I really need to know is what will I have to do to get the unmodified Ford NP435 to hook up to my engine, I know that I have to use my T150 bellhousing and get a Ford clutch disk, but will the Ford tranny mainshaft go into my engine?

Re: Can I do this?

measure the pilot and check it!

Id bet it will bolt up, it might need some mods on the bolts holding the tranny to the bellhousing.

and the earlier poster was right a dana300 will most likely bolt in place of that 208, make sure the 208 has the front output on the right side, and if its a 23 spline with the round NP pattern itll bolt to a dana 300

lenght might be an issue though, what rig are you building?

the adapter from a 435 to a NP tcase is like 4+ inches long from what ive read.

You need an advanced Adapters catalog, they list pilot bearing diameters and shaft diameters, in fact if the kids goto bed early Ill look it up in my catalog.

You will probably need a special pilot bushing. I got mine from advanced adapters, seems like the shaft on the np 435 is 1/16`` to small in diameter. The 435`s came with two different length input shafts. You want the shorter one. I think it is 6 3/4`` from trans case to end of shaft.
