which NP435

to best ( cheapest) fit between a Ford 302 and a dana 300 in a mid 80s CJ7?

I know there are some later FORD versions which used the NP208, so Ill assume these are 23 spline round adapter ( typical New Process or Dana 300 pattern) right?

but how LONG is that adapter in a CJ? is the AA adapter shorter than the factpry set ups?

thanks for any info offered!

Re: which NP435

The adapter kit for the NP435 comes with a new mainshaft/output shaft which fits it to the D300.The adapter itself is about 4 1/4 inches.
Cheap...depends on where you are located It took me three weekends to find one and it cost $475.00 which killed the cheap aspect of the swap plus the cost of the adapter kit and I have to get a clutch plate also.unless you get one of the guys from this board who claim to be able to get them cheap ,get you one and ship it to ya ...may be cheaper.?
If you go to the Advanced Adapter web page and you know what you are replacing and what you are putting it between you should be able to come up with an adapter to fit your requirements.Then call no Excuses in new jersey to get it 20 % cheaper .

Ozark,
You start with a 2WD Tranny. If you go to the Novak website they describe the process pretty well. BTW I've got a nice one I'll let you (or anyone else) have for $200. Good luck. Tom

Re: which NP435

I dont understand why you cant use a 4wd version that used the NP208 case, unless its a 21 spline shaft?

the dana 300 is 23 spline round pattern, most 208s Ive seen are 23 spline round pattern.

maybe all Ford NP cases are 21 spline. thats the real qustion I have.

Im trying to find a way around the adapter.

Re: which NP435

Mine is a two wheel drive type out of an 85 ford F150.The out put shaft is like 14 1/4 inches long so I doubt you could use it without an adapter.because you change to a shorter mainshaft.
There is a whole slew of trannies to swap into them depending on what you are replacing and what year and engine type.
