Re: Looks like I am finally build my Scrambler.
If your want the NV4500, then consider the diesel version. They are more plentiful, b/c most people think that they won't work behind the gas engine. They will. You can use the AA bellhousing, just the bering retainer will be different. The diesel verison has a larger front tapered berrings, the gas version has smaller front berrings. Instead of buying the AA modified berring retainer, just modify the diesel version on a lathe. This will save you some $, especially if you already have acess to a lathe. Contact me if you want the specifications that I used. You will also get a little better tranny, larger berrings=better.
I found a used Dodge 4x4 diesel NV4500 for $800. $200 AA bellhousing, dual friction clutch, gold pressure plate, throughout berring, clutch fork, clutch hydro. slave cylinder, etc. Much cheaper than a new NV4500, of which I will have no chance in breaking.
Just a little hint on saving some money.
