Default 205 help

I got a 205 from I assume mid to late 70s. I believe my front output to be the cv style. Now I am also running a c6 with the short adapter housing. I can't seem to find a driveshaft that will clear the c6. I have been running just the normal driveshaft on that output but of cousre the ujoint straps are binding the caps and tearing up the needle bearings every trip out. Did they put the cv style front outputs on the c6s or only the manual trans trucks?

I'm 99% sure my bronco had a cv shaft on the front, with a c6. Let me check when I get home tonight. I have a spare shaft from a parts truck too, I can get some dimensions if it would help.

What style 60 are you running in front? 78-79, or later?

I put a CV front from a Bronco (got it at Jeff's Bronco Graveyard) to help with the angle after I put a 4" lift on my 79' F150 that has a 205. Double cardan joint at the t-case not really a CV. I just had to change the front output flange on the 205.

But do you have a short or long adapter housing on the c6.

I got 2 different cv shafts from a late 70's and both will hit the corner of my trans and thr pan. I have the short adapter.

I ran the short shaft tail housing trans with a 205 in a bronco. I ran a u-joint to u-joint shaft (no double cardan) with the slip yoke on the tcase end. Thats all that would work.

no shit, guess i should have read the whole thing. Even turning my driveshaft around would make it hit the pan.
I had a 9" suspension lift and no bind in that setup.

To answer your question, late 70's were usually double cardan style.

u need the longer adapter for the 205, then it will clear, if your using the short adapter, thats the 203 one i think and it puts the front output to close to the tranny

Pickups used short shafts and broncos used long shafts, both used 203 or 205s. Why they did that i have no idea. I never had a issue on mine john but mine was the long style. What did you end up doing?
