    69\' SM 465 tail housing

    can a 69' 2wd sm465 4 speed be converted to a 4wd box by switching the tail housing? And is the tranny worth much? Thanks.

    It can be converted to a 4WD tranny but you will also need to change the shaft out to a 4WD 10 spline version to mate up to the coupler for the adapter. The 2WD tranny's use a 35 spline shaft .
    As for what they are worth that varies throughout the country - they are some what plenty full and easy to find . I have seen 465's go for $50.00 and others in the same condition went for $400.00 - it's all in what someone is willing to pay . One mans junk is another mans treasure.

    seepost just above thisone: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=blazer4x2&Number=816962&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=186&fpart=1&vc=1&PHPSESSID=

    for what its worth i find that they are worthlessand unwanted, but the 420 and 435 and 435CR trannies are another story probably, i am unsure, , ive tossed several nice 465 in the trash even recently, and even watched a few old fors 420's go wasted into the shredder also andmore to go soon, they are not in interest by anyone still yet,maybe in 10 more years ?
    noone seemsto want 4 speed and are always swappingfromthem to auto in which i thihnk is a bunchofwaste,completely,. 4speed truck are super fun, auto are lame and boring...

    good luck
