    doesn't mean it couldn't be done. I've read towing in overdrive isn't very advised cause of the excessive heat it causes /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Are you sure its heat realted? Towing in OD is bad because 5th gear is weak.

    take off the tail housing and change the nut. if its loose already gotta change the gear as well. the nut has an allen head in the side and locktite for it. iirc $45 from the dealer . quick fix

    There is also an improved mainshaft available with a wider splined section under the 5th gear to support it better. Spendy though ~300.

    Plenty of standard trannys have internal pumps and provisions for coolers. Just not anything you'd use in a light truck...
    But the root of your statement is correct; the NV4500 has no fittings for a cooler.
