TRANSMISSION INFO: The NV4500 was introduced in 1993 and has been recognized as the ultimate manual transmission of choice. With a 5.61:1 low gear ratio, 27% overdrive and a synchro-reverse, this transmission works well with the early broncos.
The adapters we carry only fit the Dodge versions. The transfer case adapter is supplied with an adapter housing, a special spud shaft and the necessary bearings and seals.
Your Ford bell housing will also need to be adapted.
The Dodge NV4500 has a 7-1/2" long input shaft.
We carry an adapter plate that bolts to the front of this transmission. This compensates for the long input shaft and provides the necessary Ford bell housing bolt pattern.
Another consideration is the clutch disc spline. The stock Ford is 1-1/16" 10 spline, and the NV4500 is 1-1/8" 10 spline.
When installing the components, drive line and floorboard modifications will be required.
Transmission is not included.
This kit assembly consists of a new transfer case adapter, transfer case linkage, cross member and mount, bell housing or bell housing adapter plate, clutch disc, and shifter handle.
This complete adapter package is a cost effective way to order.
A new transmission may be ordered from your local Dodge dealer or from us in our manual transmission section.
