"Supposively" there is a place called Hicks 4WD who distributes AA's stuff cheaper. Do a search and you'll probably find their number. HTH

AA's price is a bit strong ...
thanks.</STRONG>
When I did my 231 V6 conversion I got my TH350 to Toy xfr case adapter from Downey.
It consisted of a new output shaft for the trans and special plates to bolt the two together. FWIW

Sams off road quated me $450 for the AA adapter that uses the stock chevy output shaft. I like this idea better because it helps the short ass front driveshaft and doesnt require changing the output shaft of the tranny

Put a np-205 instead, they will hold up to anything and probalby cost less than the adapter you need to get. <IMG SRC="smilies/cool.gif" border="0">

A friend of mine says he has the Downey plate on his and it's a lot different than other's I've seen. His is basically 2 3/4" plates bolted together. The AA ones that I've seen look like a cast part and are longer.

This ad was in the local Truck Trader.

Toyota Conversion Setup, Buick 231 V6 with turbo 350 mated to early '80s transfercase, extra parts, 4 barrel Offenhausen intake with holley carb, spare parts or rebuilder motor, spare heads, and other parts. $600 for all Call and ask for Damon 541-258-2959. Lebanon, OR


This is a good deal. if I had $600 I would go get it, even though I dont need it. Hope this helps

He bought it used so I'm not sure how old it is. It is a Buick 231/turbo 350/toy t-case and came out of an 83. He's taking it apart in a few weeks. I'll have a better look at it then.

Mine's 2 pieces also, with 'Downey' (not AA)cast into it, circa 1985. Don't know what they're selling now a days.

I would, especially as the trans and tcase are apart on the garage floor right now and it would be the perfect time to show how it all works, but I don't have a digital camera.

If someone would like to buy me one <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

or failing that, are those $50 low resolution ones good enough for this sort of application ? or is there anyone near me that has one ? or, or,

Hey, could you tell us how the adapter works. it sounds like it's two pieces of 1" plate that are screwed together with the bolt heads recessed into the adapter plate.

how do the shafts couple together ?

thanks.

I have a Downey 3" adapter. It has one plate
that bolts to the back of the trans, and one that bolts to the t-case,then you bolt the
two together. You need to install the special output shaft in the trans. I was looking for the shortest one out there and that was it. After I bought it, I decided to stay with the 4 banger for rock crawling. So I have the adapter and fresh TH350 just sitting in the garage.......

YESSSSSS! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

And like I said, if you could lay the adapters down on a piece of paper & trace them (maybe on a copier?) what would be GREAT. Basically any pictures, specs, info you can share is MUCH APPRECIATED <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

OK, I got pix but have to figure a way to post them. I can trace one plate that is off the trans, but the tcase plate is still mounted and will be harder to do.
