    I was going to swap a sm465 in place of my th400 in my diesel blazer. I have almost everything for the swap but now I'm thinking of doing a nv4500 instead. Is the 4500 as stout as the 465? I'm sure I can find a good used 4500 for the $500-1000 range which is fine for me. I want to keep mech. linkage I have and np208. Would this be the same doing the 465 swap or just too much trouble?

    Thanks.

    Contact Advanced Adapters. At minimum you will need a new bellhousing. I'm not sure if a mech linkage will work with the AA housing. Stock housings are hydro.

    i'm fairly certain the AA bell is meant for mech linkage as I had to buy an adaptor assembly to run hydro stuff. The NV4500 is as stout as the SM 465, as long as it has enough gear lube in it. :doah:

    Yeah no kidding! I'm tempted to drill the PTO cover for a temp sensor ;)
