There's two different lengths available. To swap between the two, you'll have to tear down the transmission to swap the output shaft to the different length needed.

I believe the factory auto with a NP205 has the long adapter. It was the factory np203 that has the shorter version. At least that is what I have seen. I have both.

You are correct. The '78 Broncos with and auto and 205 came with the long adapter. The auto and 203 had the short adapter.

The '78 broncos with an auto and either t-case were equipped with a double cardan CV on both the front and rear shafts.

I don't know what manual trucks had...
