I have an old 1980 8C 30 dump truck with a Turbo 400

Customer Question

I have an old 1980 8C 30 dump truck with a Turbo 400 transmission and four-wheel-drive I just lost the transmission and found another one my question is the other transmission has a longer nose on the back of it then the four-wheel-drive one is this something that can be unbolted and bolted back on or does the transmission spline stick out too far
JA: When was your transmission fluid last checked?
Customer: Old tranny shot
JA: What year is your Turbo?
Customer: 1988
JA: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Friend of mine who's a mechanic is swapping them but he is saying that the long those can't be swapped for a shorter end because the spline sticks out too far
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I have pictures I can send if it's possible

ok, your friend is correct. the only way it would work is to change the output shaft of your old trans to the donor trans. then the transfer case will bolt up correctly.
