    Anyone know the going price for an NV4500 for the scrapyard?
    I have the SM465/NP205 now. What all would I need to convert? Is there an input/output spline adapter issue I need to worry about? I need the hydaulic clutch setup and newer bellhousing, correct? What years to look for, anythng 88-up?

    these guys sell it for $1450 with no core charge for a GM one. they also sell the advance adpaters bellhousing and other adpaters for a LOT cheaper then you can buy them from advance adapters...

    Good luck trying to find one in a yard. From what I understand, companies like JB Conversions, Advance Adapters, and others search the yards NATIONWIDE for these trannys, and snap them up immediately, to sell at a premium. Something about Heepers who are willing to throw $10k at a drivetrain to go behind a lightly-modified 4-liter I-6. If I could find a decently-priced 4500, I'd grab it just to have around, in case I ever decided to go manual. Kinda like the 205 I got for free...

    Yeah, no kidding... If I ever stumbled onto more than 1 for a good price, I'd beg/borrow/steal funds to get all I could, then sell them here! But I think that's a pipe dream...

    Paid $1850 to Sallee Chevrolet in Oregon. Didn't have to pay sales tax or shipping. Sallee had shipped to within 10 miles of my home. They bolt direct to a NP241 or 208, 32 spline only. Best part of my truck, couldn't live with 4.56's without it. Make sure you match the bell housing to the model of NV4500 you buy. There was a change in bolt patterns sometime in mid 90's. My particular trans is a 95 model, brand new. The AA bell housing has the mounts for a hyd. slave cylinder. Mine was a complete bolt in and I could have used the stock 87 hyd. slave cylinder but chose to put a new J**p one in for clearance around future headers. I had to move stock NP208 T/C shifter back 3 " to make room for the transmission shift tower and boot. I cut out new metal for top and bolted it in after sealing it. Used stock 95 Chev NV4500 shift boot and 87 Chev T/C boot. Everything looks stock and original. You must be sure and use correct clutch and T/O bearing. AA can tell you which one. I used new stock 87 Chev truck clutch & AA T/O bearing. Works great. Really not much harder then installing SM465's just nicer shifting.

    87 K5, D60 & 14FF, 5 sp & NP208 & 383 stroker. Build it Bulletproof and take it fishing!
