Advance Adapters Full Bellhousing Kit For A 23 Spline, 1-1/8th 10 Spline Input Shaft Dodge NV4500 To A Jeep 4.0L 6 Cylinder (1989-02 AX15 & NV3550 Replacement For Both Stock External & Internal Slave Cylinder Design
The overall assembly length is 24.750. The 4.0L Jeep 6 cylinder engine can be easily adapted to the NV4500 using our adapter bellhousing. The internal release bearing on the early AX15s will be eliminated, and the external slave cylinder on the later model AX15 and NV3550s is replaced with a new style slave cylinder. The bellhousing requires the installationi of a new GM input shaft. NOTE: The installation of the new GM input shaft may require the transmission endplay to be reset.
When coupled to the AX15, the stock transfer case used a 23 spline input gear. If you obtain a 23 spline NV4500 the stock transfer case input gear can be retained. If you get a later model NV4500 transmission with a 29 spline output shaft, our kit 27-0012T comes with a new 29 spline input gear for the New Process 231 transfer case.
The transfer case adapter is the shortest design possible to couple to the new process transfer case. This adapter comes with a shifter bracket that allows the use of your stock transfer case shifter. Jeep TJs require a different transfer case shifter bracket which can be switched out before shipping the kit. These packaged kits include a new support crossmember which couples to the stock skid pan. Modifications will be required to your floorboard for the shifters, and the skid pan will require new holes to be drilled for our crossmember support. A body lift is normally recommended for clearance. Due to the different transfer case shift controls found on Jeep Cherokees, this kit should not be used with these vehicles.
These kits are also supplied with a new external slave cylinder. When coupling this new slave cylinder to your stock master cylinder, you will be required to use one of the following clutch fittings, 716130 or 716130T. The correct fitting will depend on which configuration you have on your stock master cylinder fitting.
