    the sm420 has almost a 7 to 1 first gear and is i believe the lowest geared stock tranny...good for a crawlin rig.
    Www.novak-adapt.com has good info on that tranny and a chart to properly identify

    That looks like old Napco stuff to me. Front axle is Napco which is built from the old GM corporate axles (like the rear axle you have there). The rear is an old corporate half ton unit, it is a cousin of the "Eaton" axles (but smaller). That is an HO33, the half ton axle that was used prior to the introduction of the 12 bolt. The transfer case looks like what was used with the Napco conversions also. It should have a Napco tag on it.

    I've never seen a D44 that has a drop out center section before :rolleyes:

    that is a NAPCO axle. the rear is a semifloating Eaton. I would suggest trying to sell them to the restoring crowd, and steer clear of using them in your rig.
