who's clocked their 205

Been looking around about clocking my 205 behind a 435. I want to clock it and rework my skid. I'm looking to be able to lower the 205 so I can get a better rear driveshaft angle. I have the round bolt pattern. Is a kit the best way to go, and through who? Or is it possible with modification to redrill holes if necessary and clearance for the shifters? Basically, what is the best way to accomplish this. Let me know problems you encountered with a certain kit, or certain vendor. Thanks

All right.... In other words, i need to clock the 205 up, so I can lower it without cutting my skid up too much.

He is talking about clocking a 205 behind a 435, this obviously means it is a married setup, you could clock it a million different ways and the rear driveshaft angle will never change.

Are you trying to explain that you want to clock up the 205, and lower the trans mount in order to retain clearance between the t-case and your current skid plate? Which yes would held rear d-shaft angle, but fuck up the front d-shaft angle...

It's 420, fuck you, it clicked now

Talk of moving the tcase vertically made me think divorced.

I could see the second one making sense, driveline angles short of binding are only concerns at high speed, so I'd take the tradeoff to make it better in 2wd for a bit more noise in 4wd. 4wd is only really for when you're stuck or off road, IMO.

my buddy had this same problem with this same setup..he stretched the rear axle out about 6 inches and is much happier with his hole set up...something to think about.

Are u running a 9" rearend ? if u are then get a hi pinion from hi 9 that will help get rd of 9" of drive shaft angle.

I'm already stretched as far back as I can go. I have a dana 60. I've been looking at the northwest fab kit. Is it being 3/8 thick enough. Anybody have any issues with the studs not having enough thread engagement in the clocking ring... What other options are there for transfercase mounts.

These are all brilliant ideas and all... But i'm looking for a quick rundown/review of different clocking rings that are out there. I know of 2 northwest fab, and duffy. I've read about people use a dana 300 clocking ring, and heard people say an np 208 clocking ring will work, but you won't be able to use one of the holes. then some are saying to make your own using a gasket as a template... I want to hear from people that have used a clocking ring, or clocked a ford 205 with the round pattern by other means.

I don't want to stretch my axle more, move my motor forward, raise my motor, use a different transfercase or purchase a 600 dollar high angle driveshaft. I want to clock what i have, which is a bullet proof transfercase.

"I could see the second one making sense, driveline angles short of binding are only concerns at high speed, so I'd take the tradeoff to make it better in 2wd for a bit more noise in 4wd. 4wd is only really for when you're stuck or off road, IMO. "

What the fuck does this even mean? Bad driveline angles always suck. and its a gear drive transfercase... it's always loud. And i know i didn't explain it, but this is an offroad vehicle, therefore 4wd is necesary...

Not trying to sound hostile... But what the hell...

I don't mind shit angles on front shafts. I also don't put crazy money into aftermarket front axle bits, so I just accept that front drive bits are frail, reducing the strength of a drive shaft U joint by putting a bit more angle to it is no big deal. Your rear is where the most strength is, and goes at highway speeds, so it needs the better angles.
Different reasoning for different purposes.

205s ain't loud, they're all helical gears. No different than any manual trans. The loud gear driven tcases have straight cut gears in them.

Clocking the 205

I have Duffy's 1356/205 doubler kit in my bronco. I used it to clock the 205, but i also pushed the rear axle back 8" at the same time.

I also have a 3/8's Northwest Fab clocking ring on my Superduty. I am running my 273 T Casw clocked down 15 degrees on a chipped powerstroke with 38's and i have had no issues with the clocking ring. I pull 10,000 plus pounds on a regular basis too. And trust me, i'm not easy on it.
