Flipping a Ford t-case

ok i know its not Tuesday and this is a very Tuesday question

the 6 bolt round on the ford tcases, am i able to flip a tcase and bolt it up or is the pattern different and wont line up? what im wanting to do is run my 203 doubler range box upside down. how my link/trans crossmember is set up i can not fit the 203 range box in the truck like normal. so can i just flip it over and cut a hole in the cab floor and call it a day?

and yes ive looked and seen people running the 203 upside down just fine, im just not sure it it will bolt up to the stock holes or do i need to redrill the trans flange ect

The pattern isn't symmetric. You're going to have to adjust some holes.
This is looking forward at the trans adapter.
The dimensions are from an adapter I measured on a CMM. I'd guess angle nominals are 59.2 and 64.

thanks man that kinda what i figured

i did grab a pair of trans to tcase gaskets and matched them up and flipped one over and could see that all but one match up, real accurate over here so wonder if i can just oval the one hole in the back of the trans and be fine or better off re-drilling the trans then use my clocking ring to get the range box upright

NWF makes an adapter plate to run the Ford or GM 203 in 4 different positions, including upside down .

edit: found what you showed on the web site and its with their doubler kit, emailed them this morning about it and he said my best bet is redrilling

That would be great. The dealership here wont bother looking for anything without a part number
