I'll try to brief and complete. I have a 1995 GC with V8/auto and 249 t/c. Transfer case is a late style gear cut with long shaft. Picked up a 231 case from a GC with 4.0/auto that has build date of 5/2/94 with short shaft and old style gear cut. My questions are: do I need the long input shaft with the old style gear cut and where is the cheapest place to get it. I saw the Novak link and believe they have the part shown for about $180 which is ok if it is indeed the correct part. Thanks for any input(no pun intended).
