    How easy is a NV4500 from a sm465? does it use the same bellhousing as a sm465? Also does it bolt directly to a np208 or does it need an adapter or something of that sort? Thanks.

    do a price comparo on the Ranger OD unit to the nv4500
    4500 requires new bellhousing (though your BH may have 2 boltpatterns and I am unsure what tranny the extra pattern is for, and there may be enough meat to redrill...If Rene would get busy on that discovery...)

    Ranger OD is about 1500

    And the NV4500 new is about 2 grand. You can always find them in junk yards... can't say that about the ranger though. I've been debating those 2 for quite some time now. Thanks though

    you also have to factor in the parts required to run each
    the Ranger is just drivelines and a new hole or 2 in the floor
    what is required to get the 4500 to your TC...

    The 465 bell on the NV4500 is a no-go without some welding and machining. The hole pattern isn't even close and a couple of the tranny bolts miss the bell entirely. 1 hole is close and one could possibly be re-drilled. As far as I can see the Advance Adaptors bell is the way to go.

    the hydro bell has a bunch more metal on the machined syrface, may get lucky there
