I'm planning on performing my own rebuild on the Dana 24 tcase out of my 67 F250. Anyone done a rebuild on a 24 before? If so, is it a pain in the a##? I've read it's not too hard to swap in an NP205, which I know is a better tcase and parts are more plentiful and available. Is the swap difficult? What all is involved? Would I need to alter drive shafts or driveline angles or anything?
You are going to have to fill in the blanks. Insufficient data.
My take... (Like, what would I do based on your anemic post??) If everything else is stock, then the 'case is too.
I wouldn't upgrade to an NP205 until I had upgraded (1350) drive lines, a D60 front, 30 spline D60 rear, and at least twice the stock horsepower.
If you are looking at Bearings and seals on the D24, (stuff that comes in the kit) stick with it.
The D24 is plenty strong. It's not as good of a design as an NP205, but unless you are really going to "Build" this truck, an NP205 is not needed.
So... Either answer your own question, or give us more information relative to your intent...
Yup NP205 is a tough case. But...
He'll break the puny little u-joints in the closed knuckle front end... Or the 1310/1330 conversion joints in his drive lines... Or snapping the (I think 17 spline?) rear axles before Nuking a rebuilt D24...
