oh, yeah that adapter was actually designed for Ford from Neapco.

Ford stopped making the output on the 1354s in 1997, so when the parts stopped working they had this adapter made so you could run some different shaft. something to that effect. It has been a while, that is what the ford dealer told me.

ford has a part number for that. i thought i had a thread on it.

i wanted to change my output on my original 1354, but you cant get the correct output parts.

nah i remember now, when ford stopped making that output shaft and changed the tcases, if they had issues with transfer cases they just put the new one in and used that adapter to make the stock pre 98 driveshaft still work.

Well the shop that I took it too is in Witchita Falls, TX (45 min away) and they sent it to California to get cut and balanced. I think the reason it is taking so long, is the fact I sent it just before christmas, and who know's if the shop was even open around this time. That's why it's taking so long.
