Re: 5- speed for 72 k5???

The animal you seek (5 speed manual transmission that's heavy duty) would be an NV4500. Not sure what adapter he'd need to bolt the NV4500 to the t-case though, but I bet www.advanceadapters would have an adapter if anyone would... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I'm sure the other guys (or the gals) here know more about that than I do though... Oops, forgot to mention that the NV4500 doesn't need an adapter to bolt to the Chevy 350..

Can you share some pics of that beast, sounds cool...

the adapter that you would need (advance adaptors) is for the transfer case. as mentioned, the nv4500 bolts right up to the block, the t/c needs the adapter and shaft mods. but it all dpends on the type of t/c used.
