Does anyone know which vechiles I could try to locate in the boneyard that would have this trans? Also if I did find it what would be invloved in mateing it to a dana 300 and then to a ford 302 V8 motor in a 84 CJ7. Just curious. Thanks
If you have trouble finding an NV4500 at a junkyard for a reasonable price, 4WD Hardware sells them complete with the adapter for
$2,000. That may sound steep, but add up what the junkyard tranny, the adapters, and new bearings/ synchros will cost and go from there.
Gary has a good point. While these trannies are bulletproof in small Jeeps this isnt the case when they are in the bigger trucks. The truck owners often abused these trannies and a lot of the junkyard units are in bad need of a rebuild. Rebuilding one will cost a fortune.
