I just talked with a guy who has a '79 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 longbed truck that he swapped in an NV4500 he said was out of a '92 Chevy. It has a good 350, 1/2 ton axles with 3.73 gears, and the NV4500 mated to an NP208. He said that he might part with the truck for $1700, and is interested in some of the parts I have too. He wants to start over with another truck and put a 250-6 cylinder in it and 4spd/205. He told me he doesn't like the NV4500 5spd at all, and he feels like it won't hold up like the 4spd did. I wonder why it is he isn't happy with it... we both discussed the 5th gear problem they had, but besides that he still says he'd prefer a 4spd. Maybe I'll just buy the truck from him in the spring.
