700R 2wd or 4wd whats the difference??

I have a 1985 S-10 4x4 with a small block that needs a transmission. It currently has a 700R with no 3 or 4 gear. I know the cases are different, but will a trans for 2wd work? The reason I ask is because I found a B&M for a deal. But its 2wd.

Thanks Dave

4X4 Auto's typically have very short output shafts and dont use the extension housing. You can swap the shafts over, but requires a teardown.

as Eliot posted.... the 2wd & 4x4 shafts are different lengths.

they are interchangable.

You cannot cut a 2wd shaft down to the length of the 4x4 shaft.... there would be no splines .

A cheap fix would be a spacer plate to make up the difference in shaft length.

small block powered S-10 4x4 vehicles do not have a lot of room to work with . The engine may be too far forward, oil pan issues on the front diff.... the list goes on

Thanks guys; that just saved me a bunch of money . But somebody got a great deal on Ebay, B&M 700R4 trans, holeshot converter, and lock up switch with less than 1500 miles for $735.00. I wish I could have used it.
