Married to divorced Tcase Conversion

This may have been asked before but I did not find anything on a search of the forum. Can you take a married transfer case and convert it to a divorced transfer case? Say like a married NP 205 or NP 203 to a divorced unit. Thank for the help.

Yes, but it would be better to start with a divorced unit. Only Ford used a divorced NP203. Ford, Dodge and IH used divorced NP205s.

Yes I know that would be the ideal thing to do, but it seems that married transfer cases are easier to come by than divorced one. So in order to complete the conversion, what would have to change?

Input shaft change, find a way to mount the case, and find a way to seal the input yoke.

Married ford can not be converted to dfivorced, the input bore is too large.

Here is what I did with the internals of a Divorced ford 205 and the case of a 10 spline chevy case. As NWF said, the divorced ford uses a small bearing (the same as the 10 spline case). So all the shafts swapped right over.

Then I just waterjetted and milled some bearing retainer/seal holder/mount plates for the 205.

Very nice. So use a ten spline input shaft from a divorced 205? Will this also work on a 203? Also how did you seal the new input shaft?

NWF did you find any parts?

No, all the ford shafts were 32 spline. I think the only ones that are not 32 spline are the 31 spline married for the C6.

Not sure about the 203.

I sealed the input shaft with the bearing retainer, seal holder plate in the pictures.

Blazr77400 is 100% right, the divorced 203 has a the same 32 spline input as the popular 32 spline outputs on the 205. so a 32 spline 1350/1410 will fit onto the 203 divorce input. i know this becasue the one i have i put a 1350 on it for mock up.

i found one on a 76 F-250 with an auto. i looked up the specs in a old ford book and ford called it the fulltime package. only was offerd in the F-250 and only with the auto.
