Finally finished these battery boxes. Had a bunch of fun building them.

Here is the trans mount pics. I used what was left of the Dodge mount.

Got the 205 tacked up. Cut the rivets off a stock cross member and moved the front hole to the back hole and just need to drill four for the rear. Working out pretty slick. And yes, I need to finish painting the ugly old thing.

Also finished the Intercooler mounts. Just used some angle iron and made rubber standoffs. Went rather easily and ended up sturdy.

I finished the tubes for the IC as well. I used the stock pipe from the drivers side and cut it at the lowest elbow. I stopped by an exhaust shop and grabbed a couple of flared pieces and a foot or so of 3" for the Ford IC. I took the elbow off the turbo, cut it down and tig'd it. Used the left over part from the other side and flared it in the same fashion. Hopefully I'll be ordering drive lines by the end of the week from Tom Wood's. Still gotta figure out the gas pedal, linkage, wiring and return line. And exhaust. And mount the air cleaner. And transmission lines. But that's it. Oh and A/C.

That doesn't look like any 205 I've seen. What did you get it out of?

That transfer case looks like a Dana 24, used in the earlier fords... Pretty solid unit either way.

It's a really early 205. OMC used ford 205s in their peach shakers and that's what this is out of.

Well crap, I asked a few guys about it around here and they all swore it was a 205, but digging around it looks to be a 24. Kinda sucks. I'll have to look around and find a 205 I guess. Apparently parts are hard to find for these.

Well the good news is I think if you find a divorced 205 it will bolt up to the mounts you've already fabbed. ��

Yeah, but I was having a hard time finding one when I finally got this one. I was hoping to have this thing driving by the end of the week. I guess I'm headed to the pick and pull yards to play in the mud.
