Do you have any pictures of how you did the Np205 linkage? I haven't hooked mine up yet so I cant shift from 2 wheel to 4, winter is on its way. Mine is a 77 F150 with a 4bt hooked to a Zf-5speed married to an Np205. I imagine I could do it similar to the way you did with the NV4500.
I didn't get any up-close pictures of the bracket before I put the body on her, but all I did was bolt on this bracket from Advanced Adapters: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ADD-715528/

Hello, I am looking at doing a 4BT in my 1975 Ford F100 SWB 4x4 and I would love to know how you are liking it? is there anything you would have done differently? of course I would like to know milage, drivability, sound levels. This will be a daily driver for me and not a trail rig, I want to remove the FE and get something in there that is comparable in getting around with hopefully double the economy.

Thank you

Grimm, this is a pretty old thread. May or may not get a response. You have a very nice truck. What is your current transmission and transfer case? Also, what gear ratio do you have in the differentials? From having owned a '73 F100 4x4, I know there isn't much sound proofing in these trucks. Noise control will probably be an area you'll need to address. The 4bt isn't quiet. With the proper OD transmission and right differential gears you could expect fuel mileage in the low to mid 20's. My old F100 was stuck on 13.7 MPG city or highway with its 360 V8. Rarely ever varied.

Have you found a 4bt? Those things have become like hen's teeth over the past 10 years or so.
