Problems with Dodge NV4500

May 26, 2015 - Author: bartbarton

Question:   I recently purchased a dodge cummins with a nv4500 tranny the clutch was weak after doing a couple engine mods so I decided to replace the clutch along with that I decided to upgrade to the bigger input shaft. When setting the end play of the new shaft I took 5th gear apart and went back together fine or so I thought, it no longer will go into 5th after reinstalling the transmission all other gears work fine including reverse except 5th. I have scoured the Internet for a manual before I take it apart to see what’s wrong so I know how to put it back together. And have turned up nothing. Do you guys offer a repair/ manual?

Answer: Sorry we don’t have a manual for sale. We assume something went wrong with the syncro slider assembly during the reinstall

nv4500The slider will go on backwards…. The pointed engagement teeth need to face the rear.

Why Tire Size is Important

May 8, 2015 - Author: CourtneyN

Question: I have a 1992 4WD GMC Sierra.  The transmission gets stuck in neutral and reverse when it is backed up with transmission in 4 wheel drive any ideas?

Answer: As far as  being stuck in natural or reverse, it shouldn’t make any difference to the transmission if it’s in 4WD or not as far as the transmission shifting unless there is a drive line bind like mismatched front and rear gear ratio’s or mismatched tires Not sure what the problem is suggest you verify it has not had any differential work as in one of the differentials being changed and creating a gear ratio difference… then I would check all tires.. should be within ½” overall diameter.
