your sure your putting it together correctly , it should have an INNER nut a large LOCK washer and then and outer nut

NOTE , if not put together correctly you ruin the locating pin that locks the nuts and they loosen up within a few feet of driving , also bo sure you have the correct bearings installed

they are and if its stock they don't. if it is the stock setup once its together with good bearings and still loose the knuckle or hub is likely bad. figure out which one then repair with either sleeves or spray weld and machining or just replace it.

ONLY Ramchargers and Traildusters got the full-time in 1974 , the trucks didnt get it till 1976 or 77 , but it also depends on HOW it was ordered and if its been swapped over in the last 50 years

trucks got it in 75. mine was the first year though my understanding was you couldn't order one without it unless you went 2wd.

Yep. '74 was the last year with part time and the 205 transfer case. I was there.
And I'm glad my truck came that way.

One thing wrong with that pic, is the spacer for the bearings is on the outside of the hub bore, not next the the axle stub. Not a big deal, but could be important when looking at the bearings.

How are you checking it? If your pushing the top of the tire in are you sure its not the upper ball joint. I have seen people get play there like a bearing, but it is indeed the upper ball joint

Trucks got the NP203 in 1975. It was the only transfer case Dodge offered in from 1975-1979, except for the W600 which used divorced Rockwell T223.

1. Never seen such a critter.
2. it will never work having a one piece roller side. A 1 piece race would work, or even both sections as a 1 piece.

In the fixed pic, follow the blue arrows, you can see that tightning the big ass nut, will push in on both roller bearings, which push in on the races, which are held apart by the spacer.

On the wrong diagram, tightening the big ass nut, will push in on the "One piece roller", and then tighten up. There is nothing holding the races, they would be free to float around.
