205 Transfercase conversion ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here convert to the 205 cast iron style transfer case?

I am looking at it as a mod.

They are matted to Fords a lot which puts the yokes in the correct side.

Seems viable.

This 241 DHD is pretty much a POS if used a lot.  (IMO)

I think my chain is banging again.

Your thoughts and ideas?

Swap in a 271 out of a 3rd gen.

Never mind I looked it up.

It is just another rubberband unit.

The chains stretch out REAL fast snowplowing

Actually the 271/273's  are quite strong, even Atlas recommends not replacing them with their units because the 271/273 is stronger.

I know nothing most the time and can prove it the rest of the time...

But I do see chains for sale for them, whereas gear to gear stuff almost never wears out under normal wear conditions.

Chains are proly great for mud slinging..but for a serious push (Big V plow)  back and forth a hundred or more times in a 4 hour period they just don't last.

The 271/273 is a mighty strong one for sure.. many a sled puller can attest.

 

gears blow up also and usually /many times take out the case , chains many times are rebuildable at lower $$ than ones like a 205

 

some things to weight out lol

Ok- For my own piece of mind, I want to go to gear to gear unit.

I am not opinionated but my mind is made up...........LOL

I could be wrong as it has happened on rare occasions in the past....hour
