203's and 241's are most common from 73-89
mainly 73-81 or so are the np203's and 81- on are np241's that is if they are full time...they have 205's too...but don't see them often (mainly if it was switched out.)
hey, anyone whos listening
i got a '85 powerram and i was reading up on my 727 auto. tranny and my np208 tansfer case and it says its only a part time 4wd. i was just wondering what a part time actually mean? if i get a locker to lock my front axels, would that make it full time? like, when i bought the truck i thought i was getting a 4x4. and now its a 2x4? i dont get it??? also what do i need to upgrade to a full-time automatic?? thax.:smokin:
Part time= Have to put it in 4 wheel drive
Full time= always a 4 wheel drive, (for the most part)
The np203 (full time transfer) for instance, acts like a differential, letting the front grab when the rear slips, and vice versa, until you lock it in.
I've never heard of a factory divorced 241, but....
So, is a part time better than a full time?or which is more prefurred? my set up is a 727 with np208, i think it has D44's in the front ( its a w250) and the 9.25 bolt rear.
i was also wondering, if i got a locker to lock my front axels, would that be hard on my 208? im running big tires...
i have a worn front driveshaft, so i took it out. its 2 peices and the spline is worn really bad. like tis got major slop. i was wondering if this is normal or what would cause it too get so worn out like that?? i know someone else with a 4x4ram that has slop too. any input one this guys??
