    Got some of the goodies I've been slowly aquiring. Got my Advance adaptors bellhousing today, new 203 range box and dual T-case kit from NWF. Decided to mock it all up (so I'm a little excited...:crazy: )

    Still saving for the 205, and waiting for one single synchro so the NV4500 can go back together and be buttoned up.

    [​IMG]

    Overall length so far is 35.81" from the front of the bell to the rearmost face of the dual T-case adaptor. I'll have to crawl under the truck and see what my 465/205 combo is measured the same way. Should give me a very good idea on driveline length anyways.

    *edit* SM465/205 is 25.38" from the front of the bell to the machined face of the 205. Looks like this combo will be 10 1/2" longer. That should get my driveshafts pretty much equal length if my math is worth a crap. :)

    I sure hope so...prolly the biggest project $$ wise that i've done since I bought my truck. :doah:

    The triple stick shifters should be here in a week or so, not that it's a big rush without the 205 here.

    Send all the crap to me, you don't need it. I have a lonely np205 that needs some companionship.

    The NV4500 weighs 200lbs, versus about 170lbs for the 465. It's not gonna be a lightweight combo by anyones definition...;)

    Rene, that is exactly the combo that I want in my truck. Would you be willing to share what you've had to fork over so far for it?

    Pretty much all the pricing is on the NorthwestFab site ( www.northwestfab.com )

    I'm into the NV4500 for $1275 including the bellhousing kit, but it was a basket case. Doubler kit was ~$700, rebuilt and redrilled 203 reduction box was $349, triple stick shifters (not here yet) were $265. The 205 should be right about $1000. 32 spline input, 32 spline output, shift rails ground, new bearings and seals, billet retainers, and 1410 yokes front and rear...plus a few bucks here and there for shipping, although I'm pretty close to Kyle's shop so he has been eating the shipping on most of the small stuff just cuz he's a nice guy.

    Still need a shifter for the NV4500 too...:doah:

    Going slow is just as spendy as going fast apparently. :haha:

    :bow: Wow, that looks great Renee. Did you rebuild the NV4500 yourself? I would be very interested in seeing a bit of a write up (with a parts list :wink1: ) if you did. I'm thinking I should go through mine next winter. Keep up the good work.

    WOW! That's adding up to more than I paid for my truck when I bought it!!

    It's gonna be a bomb proof drivetrain though...money well spent.

    Can't wait to hear about your first run with it......

    Just talked to Kyle, my 5th gear synchro shipped today...so I'll have it tomorrow morning and can final assemble the NV4500 on the weekend. I'll snap some pic's if you want. So far the only real pain in the butt is removing the countershaft. You have to cut off the bearing cage in order to make enough clearance to get it out. The install is a bit easier, you just drift the new bearing onto the rear of the shaft once it's in the case.

    The rest is just snap rings and bolts.
