The T-18 will have to have adapters to fit the Gm motor and the Dana 300. The T-18 is not a bolt in either. Per Novak Adapters the Dana 300 will not bolt directly to the NV4500. It will take a $345 adapter to connect the 2. If you have the money for the NV4500 I would stick with it. Form what I hear you will be happier with the NV4500 than the T-18.

Re: NV4500/350GM/Dana300 W/ no adapters?

My friend has a 1979 cj5 with a nv4500 and a dana 300. I am 95% sure that he used a adapter on both the engine and the transfer. But he is using a amc 304 so that's a little different. But it should be the same for the transfer case. You could send an e-mail to advance adapters and ask them. good luck to ya.

There are a few Dodge transmission that use the same transfer case adapter as a Jeep Dana 300 transfer case. I'm not 100% [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] for sure but I'm thinking the Dodge version NV4500 used the same adapter as the Jeep Dana 300.

You do not need an adapter to use a Dodge NV4500.
Forget about that A-Adapter literature.
The '95 and earlier NVs are a direct bolt on and the newer NVs can be bolted on using a Go2Guy clocking ring since the newer NVs have a shallower rear retainer that slightly interfere with the OEM D300 front input bearing retainer housing.
Don't believe me??? ....

... there it is.

Re: NV4500/350GM/Dana300 W/ no adapters?

I believe you Jaffer, but didn't you have to drill one hole or leave one bolt out for the tranny to t-case? That is the information I had. I also understood that the Dodge and Chevy had a different bolt pattern at the front but that is just a matter of drilling a hole or two, or finding the later model Chevy bellhousing because they eventually went to the Dodge pattern.

I never did it because I saw no big advantage if I couldn't find the 6.xx first gear ratio version. These are rare and I never found one. I did the research though and the above were my findings.

Will any other decent trannies bolt directly to the dana 300? Not the T-4, T-5, SR-4, T-176, TF904, TF909, or TF999. Maybe a different dodge tranny? Auto or manual.
