i have a 97 with nv4500 and 241 transfer. im wondering if i can junk for a 205? which 205 do i need, i know the first gen goes wrong way. so did dodge but 205s in 2nd gens. or do i have to use special adapters. i think toe 205 is a wonderful transfercase. any input appreciated.
As far as i know there isn't a 205 that will just bolt up in place of your 241. If your serious about the swap you can check out Advanced Adapters. They should be able to set you up with the proper adapters to make it work. You'll also need to find a Drivers side drop 205 from a Ford. Why are you trying to swap the 241 out?
I was considering an NV4500 and NP205 combo in my Fummins and this is the kit I was looking at. You may have to ask Advance Adapters if it works with the Diesel NV4500 (the site doesn't show this kit when you choose Diesel NV4500 HD in the dropdown). Worth a look if you are sold on the NP205 conversion...
I got a friend that runs a Ford NP205 in his 95 dodge with a 5 speed.....
Personally though, in the truck pulling world, NP205's blow up quicker than the 241DHD's do...... I think most of the bad rap for chain t-cases comes from the cases developing leaks, and running dry.... Just my theory.... I'd sooner step up to one of the NP271's they use behind the common rail... They're friggin huge!!!
Oh, and my buddy got his kit from advance adapters

Well, gear drive t-cases in general arent all bad..... You should see the profab units that major hp guys run for sled pulling..... But gas and diesel..... They are ALL gear-gear drive.... And billet aluminum cases.....
But yes, gear drive has major spreading forces between the gears, where chain drive will have a pulling force between them.. But compression strenght is usually stronger than tensile.....
