4BTA cummins in my J10

Been awhile since Ive posted anything. For the short version. Bought my truck of the bay. Brought it home and did body and paint. Previous owner put a 6.2, TH400, divorced NP205. Also threw in dana 60s front and rear.

Bought a Cummins 4bta and phase two started. Also bought new NV4500 (chevy with dodge input to avoid 5th gear nut prob) and dana 300. I kept the np205 so I now have a doubler with a stub shaft between the D300 and NP205.

6.2 threw a rod on the way to its motor swap.....irony? I would swear the 6.2 makes more power with a cracked block and hole in the oil pan. Anyway, its almost done. Have to run battery/alternator connections, connect fuel lines, and mount clutch pedal.

ENJOY!

Are you saying you bought a new NV4500 that has been fixed? Because originally, both the GM and Dodge NV4500 had fifth gear problems.

For more info, see Dan the Gear Man's articles.

Correct, bought a new case......no 5th gear nut problem. Chevy also put the shifter up a little closer to the firewall so this gave some extra floor room which I need for two more shifters
