SM465/NP241C spline engagement

I'm planning on putting the above combo into my Jeep. I've got the 465 with the long, 32 spline output. The 241 I have is from a '98 chev 3/4 ton and has a drivers side output.

I am using the adapter that came with the 465, it is a tad over 10" long and has the round 6 bolt pattern on the t-case end (I believe it must have been in front of a 205 with the long stickout input gear).

So my issue is when I bolt everything together, I only end up with about 7/8" of spline engagement between the 2. Plus, I have to use a clocking ring on the 241 in order to get it up closer to the body otherwise it hangs down like a mofo, so i lose 3/8 from that, bringing me down to 1/2".

Im assuming I have the wrong adapter for this application, or I need to modify the one I do have to work. I'd be walking on thin ice if I ran it this way so I need some another option.

Ideas? Suggestions? Part #'s?

you need a 456 that had a 208 on the back of it, more common then a 465-205 combo so should be easy to track one down.

how much of the output shaft sticks out of the tranny you have now? if i remember right i think mine was just about even with the mounting flange.

Mine is a little over an inch shy of the mounting flange, and the stickout on the t-case is pretty close to 2 inches.

So you're saying there were different lengths of the 32spline output for the 465 depending on the t-case?

yes im not 100% sure but i think the 205 with the round pattern had a shorter output shaft on the 465, but anyways a 241 has the same input dementions as a 208 so thats the trans you want to find or comfirm what trans you have right now would be a start.

In the mid 80s all 4wd 465s had the same length 32 spline. When I swapped my 84 to stick, the tranny was from a mid 85-ish 3/4 that had a 208. I put a 205 and correct adapter off an 86 1 ton. IIRC had a couple inches of engagement.

get the adapter for an sm465 to np208 and it will work with the np241.

the sm465/205 32 spline adapter is longer than the 208/241 adapter. there were factory 465/241 combos, but they arent too common, at least around here.
