Is this a C6 bolt up?

I'd assume so. D8 = 1978 and I'm pretty sure that was the only auto that was bolted to 205s those years.
Do you have the trans output shaft too?

googled the number on the adapter, D8TP - 7A040 - AA. It's for a C6.

You need this. It's not just a bolt her up and go type of deal. You get to tear down the trans and replace the 2wd output shaft with a 4x4 shaft. It's usually easier finding a whole 4x4 transmission.

I sold a 2wd c6 that came with a 302 last week. I am hunting for a small block 4x4 c6.

Keep in mind there are 2 different 4x4 C6 tailshafts. The long '79 and prior that works with the 205. And the late '80 and newer short shaft for the chain drive transfer case.

As far as I have found, there are no factory long shaft small block C6 combos. You have to build one out of a '70's 4WD C6 (big block of FE bellhousing) transmission and put that into a small block (any year) C6 case.

I've never tried it first hand but why wouldn't a 205 fit on the short shaft c6? Shifter clearance issues?
Shurly there's some guys with later 80s trucks that have swapped in 205s

I've read that a short shaft C6 - 205 combo will put the driveshaft in the trans pan rail. Just what I've read, no personal experience.


I have a regular long shaft C6-205 mocked up in my Bronco frame. Even that combo looks like it could get a little tight with a CV joint.
