What transfer case is in a 1974 Trailduster?
« on: February 11, 2013, 07:42:25 PM »
So did they put a 205 in the 1974?   Truck looks like it has 5x4.5 wheels would that be right?  Can anybody send me a pic of the linkage on the transfer case I gotta figure out what I am missing.  Thanks

Stock would have been an NP203 full time case, which would require the small 5x4.5 lug pattern wheels and no locking hubs.

Going on 40 yrs later who knows for sure whats under there, could be NP205, could be part time converted 203, could be...

Pics would help us for sure.

Nope, no 205, it's a 203 full time T-case.

Yep there should be a round tag on the back with a screw in the middle with 203 stamped in it.
I'd rather push a DODGE than drive a chevy or a ford!!!!!!

And my 69 Roadrunner came from the factory with a aluminum case 833od trans?  How about the 205 in my 80 RC?

The only one who knows for sure whats under the truck is the one who looks.

The 74 RC was the vehicle that Dodge introduced the NP203 in. It came in pick-ups the next year.
