C6

Trying to install a Power Pro Chain drive kit in the rail but the stack up is longer than with transfercase. I looked at the early 4x4 FE C6 shaft, still to long.
So does any one make a C6 shorty kit?

There are two 4X4 shafts.

18 1/2"

15 3/8"

Would the shorter one work?

Wrench twister since 1957.
Journeyman in 1964.
Transmission builder since 1964.

If I remember right there were 2 different spacers between transfer cases, one for 203s and one for 205s. I thought the shorter one was for the 203 and the spacer was made of aluminum.

As far as C6-205's go there are two different adapters. Short for pickups and long for broncos.

If you are going chain drive anyway, look for an older divorced tail housing. You can weld the gear on the yoke, because its a bolt on unit, and it makes it about the same as a transfercase with the short spacer.

Big Broncos for life!
