    1 - There is a number stamped on the back of the block(drivers side where the bellhousing bolts too)and also a stamp on the pass side front deck ledge. You can decode a block on www.mortec.com with those.

    2 - No idea

    I have searched for a while out of curiosity , and can find bellhousings and adapters for nv4500's but not nv5600's . I would call advance adapters and see if they plan on one , or if one is available but isn't in their catalogue yet :xmas:

    Man, that NV5600 is one BIG transmission. :yikes: I'd hate to see what it took to get it under one of our trucks. :grind: :weld: :hack: :hack: :hack:

    For a lighter (but still strong) 6 speed that should bolt up look for the ZF S6-650 6 speed manual from a '01 or newer HD pick-up. The Chevy's never got the NV5600.

    The ZF was the standard tranny behind the 8.1 and the D-max. The 8.1 should be the same bell pattern as a small block.

    I'm hoping to put one behind my 6.2 diesel. The closer ratios and overdrive would be a huge improvement.

    Why do you want an NV5600? Dodge are the only guys that used it and only because of the mighty cummins. I would go for an NV4500 or the newer HD tranny like trusty said before I would try and bolt in that monster.

    The ZF is only about 25 lbs haevier than the NV4500.


    Ratios are:

    1rst...5.79:1
    2nd....3.31:1
    3rd....2.10:1
    4th....1.31:1
    5th....1.00:1
    6th....0.73:1 (some sites list 6th as 0.76:1)

    reverse is 5.23:1

    It's burly enough to be also used in the medium duty trucks GM sells.
