Advance Adapters Bellhousing Conversion Kit For Dodge Heavy Duty NV4500, 1-1/4th 10 Spline Input Shaft 4WD tranny Assembly
This transmission is a direct replacement for the Getrag 5 speed. The stock Dodge NV4500 trasfer case adapter housing bolts directly to the stock Dodge transfer case. The original Getrag transmission used a seal on the backside of the main transmission case and a seal on the front side of the transfer case. When using the NV4500, the seal on the transmission side will be eliminated. The only seal separating the two gear boxes is the original seal located on the front side of the transfer case. The original front transfer case seal should provide ample protection from any contamination. The stock Dodge NV4500 adapter seal, however, will need to be removed. We have had numerous customers with the NP205 transfer case use the recommended NV4500 transmission fluid in both the transmission and transfer case in order to avoid any contamination between the two unites. We do not feel that it is necessary to use one common fluid for both gear boxes. We suggest monitoring the quality and levels of the fluids in both boxes in order to prevent any problems.
The bellhousing we manufacture bolts to the Cummins 5.9 diesel and utilizes the stock slave cylinder, clutch arm, and release bearing. This bellhousing comes with a new pilot bushing that must be installed. A crossmember mount and transfer case shifter bracket is included as part of the bellhousing kit. You will have minor floorboard modifications for the new shifter handle location.

NOTE: On some of the 1991 to 1993 Getrag transmissions, Dodge used a gated transfer case shifter. We have included the shifter linkage bracket that is common. If you have a 1992-94 vehicle with a gated type shifter, you may need to substitute 715536 with 715540. 715536 is part of bellhousing kit 712584.
