Subject: NP-205


Am getting ready to install my rebuilt C-6 and NP-205 in e.b.
find that the High-low shift forks are badly worn on the NP-205
Need FORK..

also may as well replace the 2-4 shift fork

the transfer case pops out of high-low into neutral but appears is due
to the wear on the forks..
(approx. 1/16 inch ??)
Synchro gears have a bit of wear on edges but otherwise ALL teeth in
case look good..

There is also a casting crack/chunk on the "non-shifter" side of BOTH
shift fork shafts out of the
iron casting.. the chunks are only about 1/4 x 3/8 and are between the
shaft and the opening
It appears this transfer case has been hammered a bit.. I think my
welder can brace that end and
there is no apparent crack inside the casing.. this almost looks like a
normal thing that would occur
?????

If you know of someone or someplace who would have these forks please
contact

Yes, you can bypass it without the idler. If you don't have a/c, you MAY
need the motorsport idler. Both stangs I did it to had a/c. One had the
compressor missing and the belt diagram shows that the p.s. pump is in the
same spot with or w/o a/c but its not. without, its up higher, so I had to
get a junk compressor w/ good clutch bearing to act as an idler because
otherwise the belt is too low and rubs against itself where it goes around
the waterpump.

According to the August 1991 issue of MM&FF (yes, I knew you would ask, so I
had to dig it out) "A 70 1/2 inch, 6 groove belt will bypass the smog and
power steering pumps on A/C equipped 5.0L equipped Mustangs (Gates part No.
K060705 or Dayco 5060705)" The article goes on to warn that, "The belt
sizes given will fit 99% of all 5.0L cars if all three factory pulleys or a
complete set of three street underdrive pulleys are used. Mixing and
matching factory and underdrive pulleys will create problems. In some
cases, it may be necessary to loosen the bolt holding the belt tensioner to
the bracket to facilitate a clean fit or make a final adjustment."

Mustangs & Fast Fords, pages 34-37, 42-44, and 64-66.

Good Luck!

The power steering pump is metal it is not round but more of a tear drop
style. The pump is out of a 75 lincoln. Which I beleive is why I am having
problems with finding the correct hose.

Uhm ... okay ... its a combination of things ... 1) light in the tail 2)
solid rear axle 3) progressive rate springs

At least that's my take on it as my truck isn't too bad about it (unless the
tracks are on a turn) The solid axle means if they hit while you're turning
at all one will break loose and then the other, this usually means the other
can't quite hold the truck even and it "drifts" anything with a solid axle
will do this on certain bumps. Likely when you've got the extra weight on
there there is enough traction to actually hold things down and not get the
drift.

This could be compounded by progressive rate springs going from their
lighter rating to the heavier one because of the suspension travel. Of
course there's also tire pressures involved here too .. if the tire is
inflated to max pressure it will be very hard and cause a heck of a bounce
... if you don't haul a lot, or very often, try airing down a few pounds and
see if it gets better ... there's really no reason to run max pressure
unless you're asking the tires to turn hard or something ...

or buy an IRS ... :)

Just an FYI ... yes, it is the 60 model, and it lost its horse collar for 60
as well, they're actually pretty normal looking that year ... I've got a

When I installed a AC compressor on my bronco I just put the pulleys in
the position I wanted them and ran a rope to measure the length. Then I
drove to the parts store and got some belts that were about that length,
tried them in the parking lot and kept the one I liked most (after going
back to pay for it of course :-)) In this case I guess you can't drive
the vehicle but I'm sure you can buy some belts and return what you don't
need.

Make sure you get the right width belt also.

Bas.

Paul,like someone else suggested,if you want to keep that ps pump,you can
take the hose to a hydraulic shop and have a new end put on it.If not,get
the correct pump for that year truck,and hit the junkyards for the
brackets...dave
