Dodge 1989 G360 Covered in Oil

May 27, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1989 Dodge D250 with a Cummins diesel 2WD

Question: Recently picked up an old dodge D250 and the tranny works fine but is covered in oil and I’m looking into either just replacing the seals, and rebuilding the whole thing while I have time and funds right now, or purchasing a replacement. Any recommendations? I don’t really plan on hauling anything I just want to attend to any issues now rather than wait for something to break. I live in California how much is shipping to have a rebuilt one sent (I have my own forklift if that changes anything)

Answer:  Your new truck has a Getrag 360 transmission widely used between 1989 and 1993 by Dodge behind the Cummins Diesel engine. You have a couple of options, the first is to overhaul the G360 (assuming the case is not cracked), the second option is to replace the G360 with the later model 5 speed the NV4500 (includes all the latest updates).

If you elect to overhaul the existing G-360 unit you will need:nv4500

  • Bearing Rebuild kit order our part number TRSBK261WS your cost for this kit is $307.67, plus about $20.00 S&H, kit includes all major bearings, gaskets, seals and syncro rings.

If you elect to upgrade to a NV4500 order our part number MTCRY009 your cost is $1667.67 plus core deposit of $500.00 plus freight. You can avoid the core deposit by sending in your existing transmission first (case cannot be broken). This transmission will have a 12 month warranty. If you would like to see the other parts we can provide for the G360 check out our site.

April 8, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1982 Chevrolet Silverado 2WD V8

Question:  Currently I have a 700r4, looking to put in a manual style transmission. Do you sell a kit or can you make a kit that will include everything I need to switch over my automatic transmission to a manual transmission? I know that I can get some parts and my local junk yard but I would rather by all new or rebuilt parts.

Answer:  We can provide a nv4500kit that will include the NV4500 Transmission, conversion bell housing, flywheel, clutch kit,  shift stub, shift stick, slave, master and line.  This will be a 5 Speed NV4500 custom unit to accommodate a manual speedometer im your  vehicle.

This would require a custom drive shaft after installation.  You will have to furnish clutch pedals, and floor components (boot and ring)

This would be the same transmission used in Chevrolet and GM 2500 and 3500 trucks, this transmission will be a good choice for a daily drive/work vehicle.  Your cost is $2895.00 this transmission has a 12 month no hassle warranty, is outright purchase you keep your core.  Shipping charges will be added.  You can see the other parts we provide for the NV4500 on our site.

March 28, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1997 Chevrolet 1/2 nv3500ton 2WD Pickup Truck.

Question:  Will a NV3500 transmission out of a 98 chevy s10 work in my 97 chevy half ton there both nv3500 transmissions and there both 2 wheel drive.

Answer:   They will not, the rear output shaft is different and the gear ratios are different so they will not interchange as a whole unit nor will the internal parts interchange.  You can see the rebuilt transmission and parts we offer for the NV3500 on our site.

Mileage Gain 700R4 Automatic to NV4500 Manual

March 20, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have that 1972 Blazer, thanks for nv4500_newthe cost estimated to convert from  automatic transmission to manual 5 speed NV4500, I need more information. I understand your upgrade kit for this application includes:

  • New NV4500
  • New Bell Housing
  • Clutch & Flywheel
  • Shifter Stub Stick
  • NP205 adapter.

Question: This Blazer currently has a 700R4 automatic in it that the previous owner had installed. Not a cheap conversion itself. Am I crazy even considering the 5 speed knowing it has the 700R4 in it?  Will I gain any mileage out of the 5 speed?

Answer:   We would expect that the NV4500  5 speed will gain 1 – 2 miles per gallon for the simple reason that the vehicle is not losing power thru the torque converter. The NV4500 is a lot stronger transmission than the 700R4 so decision is going to be based on what you do with the vehicle, if it’s a heavy duty application you probably want to proceed.

Improve Shifting Ford ZF Transmissions

I have a Ford F250 1999 5.4L manual transmission 2WD.

Question:  Does anyone make an old school Hurst style shifter stick and ball handle for a zf6 speed. Stick and handle only.

Answer:

Sorry we don’t know of anyone manufacturing the old style shifter. Some guy on the diesel forms made a few billet aluminum sticks but quit making them cause he didn’t sell enough and that was about 4-5 years ago.

See our short through shifter on our at site.

1972 Chevrolet Transmission Swap Automatic to Manual

- Author: bartbarton

nv4500_new

I have a 1972 Blazer 4WD with the 350

Question:  I am researching a transmission swap online. Looking to swap my automatic for a 5 speed tranny. I have seen that for my application, the NV 3500/4500 could work. Not for heavy towing, but that’s not what this Blazer is for. What transmission do you recommend?

Answer:

We can do a NV4500 conversion. The NV3550 would be a little weak for this weight of vehicle not to mention to tall of gears in the 1st and 2nd selection.  Our conversion kit for your application includes:

  • New NV4500 4×4 trans $1695.00 outright no core charge
  • 712576 Conversion bell housing package $389.00
  • Clutch and flywheel $300.00
  • Shift stub and stick included with trans
  • 50-0218 NV4500 to 27 spline NP205 adapter kit $599.00 plus S&H.

This would be a bolt in application and the bell kit would allow for either hydraulic or bell style manual clutch linkage. You will need to acquire the clutch pedals for the conversion.  This transmission will have a 12 month warranty.  You can see the other parts that we can supply for the NV4500 on our site.
