The shifter is a hurst so there are no numbers on it, but I do have manual lock hubsBronco Mels said:If you search this here forum, this has been discussed lots of times.
Like Mike said, do you have 4 or 5 positions on the t-case shifter? The 203 is friggin' huge for one thing, it's a chain driven, full time case. It'll have 5 positions, Lock-Hi-N-Lo-Lock. If I remember right, been awhile.
Here's a pic of the back of the 203 that came out of my '78.
Yeah, it's fine and dandy until that chain stetches and you can't get the truck to move until you figure out how the damn thing works. I wasn't too impressed.MikE2 said:The 203 is awesome. I would never want part time 4 wheel drive again after having that. I wish I could order new trucks that way
? Every 78 and 79 Bronco (and the various 77, 78 and 79 F-150s and F-250s too, for that matter) that I have owned have had a front CV and a 205.MikE2 said:Then you probably have the 205.
Do you have a CV joint on the front drive shaft, if yes, it might be a 203, if no, its a 205.
Thats why I said it might be. I have seen a few with the CV and a 205 also. But if it does not have the CV it is definitely a 205bmc69 said:? Every 78 and 79 Bronco (and the various 77, 78 and 79 F-150s and F-250s too, for that matter) that I have owned have had a front CV and a 205.
If someone had converted a 203 to PT it'll have locking hubs up front, so that's not always true. When I got Brutus it had manual hubs with a 203. I think somebody thought they could put the hubs in and make it part time without doing the conversion to the inside of the t-case.Dawg Bones said:this might sound like a stupid suggestion....but did you look at the front hubs? No lever to lock 'em....AWD 203, selectable "Lock" to "Free"=205. I know there are probably some people that have a selectable 203 or even a FT 205, AND I'm not an expert on it, so I'm offering the at a glance dummy's way.
