Question Borg Warner 1345

Ok. I bought a NP205, was sent a Borg Warner 1345. I know nothing about this t-case but what I have read here in my searching (which wasnt much info) and this:

BORG-WARNER 1345
Type: Chain-driven, aluminum
Low-range ratio: 2.72:1
Lubricant: ATF
Length: (in.): 17.25
Width (in.): 23.0
Height: (in.): 12.0
Used by: Some 1980-to-88 full-size Fords. Holds six pints of Dextron II ATF. This unit can be towed extended distances
because of its built-in pump that channels oil to all necessary bearings


I went ahead a put it under my Jeep (302-C6-and this thing) and now I have a few questions...

1. Is there a way that I can clock this t-case? It sits a bit low on the front output.
2. How does the 1345 compare to the NP 205 & NP 208?
3. For 125$ that I paid for it, am I getting ripped off?

Thanks for any and all information you can give me!

Eric

From that statement alone it sounds like you got ripped off.

Don't know about this. There is not much aftermarket support out there for the BW cases but you might check Advance Adapters.

The NP205 has a low range of 1.98, the NP208 has a low range of 2.61. The 205 is gear driven, no chain. The 208 is chain driven. The 205 has a cast iron case, the 208 has an aluminum case. The 205 is the strongest of the three, hands down. The 205 is pretty much the ultimate in strength.

Considering you thought you were getting a 205, yes you got ripped off. $125 is about right for a 205, sounds a little steep for a 1345. For comparisons sake I have a perfectly good 1356 for sale which is the heavier duty predecessor of the 1345. I haven't been able to sell it for $50.

Sorry for straying off topic, but Wet, if you have a manual 1356, you should be able to easily sell it at www.fullsizebronco.com. Alot of folks are looking to swap out their electric push-button 1356's for manual ones. FWIW, I paid $100 for a manual from a guy here in TX.

As for the 1345, I don't know how it compares with the NP208 and NP205, but I understand the NP205 is pretty strong. I have a 1345 in my 86 Bronco, and it seems to hold up fine, though.
