NV4500 in a 64?

I was curious about putting an NV4500 in my '64 and would like to know what would go into that. If anyone else has done this and could provide a parts list and a heads up on any fabricating needed would be very helpful.

It's a '64 3/4 ton civilian long bed swepline single cab. It has the dana 60 in the rear and the 44 up front manual stearing stock suspention it's still set up for the origional granny four speed (435 I think?) and we're looking for a pre '76 360 to run in it.

Your 64 used a crossmember that mounted under & supported the bellhousing. The NV4500 would need it's own crossmember under the tailshaft.

Get the bellhousing, clutch assembly along with the NV4500. Flywheel will have to be balanced to the 360.

Will I need to modify the tunnel? And will I need any other parts such as a new slave cylinder and lines?

I can't say about the tunnel. I would find a donor truck & get everything transmission related from it, such as master & slave cylinders, lines, bellhousing, flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, T/O bearing, maybe even the driveshaft. Some modifications will still be needed of course. Things changed a lot in those 30 years.

Do those trucks use an attached or divorced transfer case?

If divorced you'll have issues fitting the longer NV4500 in front of the stock transfer case. The dodge 2WD uses a long tail shaft, and the 4WDs used an attached transfer case. There are lots of ways to make it work just depends on what you're willing to mess with.

The 64 W200 should have a divorced transfer case. How much longer is the NV4500?

This is the shortest nv4500 setup. Chevy 2wd tailshaft housing. Bellhousing is an LA 360. This setup behind the 360 is 7.5 inches longer than a stock 230 with np420.

Yes, I have the early one in my WDX in front of the NP200, and the Cummins is jammed against the radiator to fit everything.

What do you do about the input shaft? Chevy and dodge were different IIRC though I guess they will swap?

On the plus side the Chevy versions were not known for problems with their 5th gears.
