    81 and newer SM465, then bolt up an IFS (drivers side drop) NP241.

    You might have problems with finding a hydro bell that works and has the slave on the passenger side. Most (if not all) 465 bell's have the slave or linkage on the drivers side and it would interfere with the front driveline for you.

    A better swap would be a NV4500/NP241. It would be almost a direct bolt in deal. You'd get the overdrive as well as a granny low first gear, and the factory bell would work. You could even swap in a 32 spline input into your existing T-case and bolt it up without any trouble at all.

    You will need the clutch pedal, clutch master and clutch slave for your era truck too. You may also have to cut an access hole for the shifter in the tranny tunnel. Most likely the tunnel is already dimpled for the shifter from the factory.

    What's the gap from the '88 "new body style" trucks until the NV4500 was used? I thought there are a few years inbetween in which the 465 was used in the IFS trucks...

    92 was the first year for the NV4500...

    I guess a guy would have to either source the correct bell from GM or a boneyard. I completely forgot the 465's were used in the 88-? IFS trucks as an option. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Only reason I know this was because a tone time I cross-referenced the 465 flywheel with the 4500 ones in case I went 4500 or one piece rear main block. (to keep options open) The years of the trucks involved led me to that discovery. I've actually only seen one 465 equipped '88+ IFS truck, but I know there are more out there.

    Why I'd ever need to find another one, thankfully I'll never know.
