OK, i currently have a BW1339 behind my T400 and was wondering *if* i were to find an adapter somewhere and hopefully have a new one fabbed out of steel, could i take the Twin Stick Dana 20 out of my 67 Scout 800 and put it in my jeep? I know rear axle would be offset w/ centered output and stuff, but would the twin stick bolt in is my question?

Also, has anyone seriously checked to see how much the adapters would cost to be fabbed out of steel?

Tom

I believe your gonna have to have the dana20 output shaft on your th400 also. And if you're gonna go thru all that the fsj dana20 version can be twin sticked with little or no mods other than building or buying the shifters.

yah, i guess i would need the output also, that is probably true that it could be changed to twin stick just as easy.

You also have to work about the gears in the D20. If the twin stick came from a scout 800 then it has the 20* gear cut and you would have to get the 18-8-40 main output gear to make it work right. This does go along with need to swap the rear output shaft and the new adapter.

As far as making one out of steel. I think that would be pricey . You can get a new one from Novak for $200. They are stronger than the factory ones from jeep.

well than, is there another way to attach the tranny and t-case to stiffen it up so the adapter might not break?

None that I can think of. You want to have a little flex in there so it is not too rigid. Then other things would start to break.

Nope jeep is the only one. The D20 was used in scouts behind a TF727. But that is a whole new ball game .

I had already thought about the 727, but i like my TH400.

Maybe i will just have to go with a NP205 or something like that. Anybody know what other New Process T-cases are good?
