Re: '63 K NV4500 removal / reverse build thread

Chris, glad to hear that it finally went together (especially after 3 rear mainshaft bearings )
This will help when I embark on the nv4500 swap someday.

Re: '63 K NV4500 removal / reverse build thread

Thanks everyone for the compliments and input on the build. Shifting keeps getting better with every drive so I think that the new parts are starting to seat. This was a pretty easy rebuild and I'm no master mechanic by any means. Definitely gratifying to say that I did it myself and it actually works!

Thanks again! Chris

Re: '63 K NV4500 removal / reverse build thread

I am currently rebuilding my NV4500 for my 93 GMC stake body truck. This is a great thread you put together. I too wasted 2 new rear mainshaft bearings while making mistakes putting it together. Lesson Learned. With my trans I could find NO way to take the mainshaft out once it is setting in the trans with the bearing on. Twice I destroyed that bearing so I could get the shaft out of the trans. First time was a slider incorrectly installed and the second time the reverse slider slid forward and jammed into the gear. I has just enough room to slide off the teeth of the gear and jam. Right now I still need the snap ring for fifth gear so I can finish putting it together. Thanks.

Re: '63 K NV4500 removal / reverse build thread

Excellent read. This will be one of the primary references I use as I step through my first NV4500 rebuild. The pics are great so as I do my own rebuild I will document the progress and when finished, hopefully I can add a thread as helpful as this one has been. Oh, and that is a bad ass truck.

Re: '63 K NV4500 removal / reverse build thread

Thanks Richard. That build seemed so long ago.

Looking back, I wish I could have added much more info and way more pics but you get the point. The 4500 is something that you can do do in your garage with a little research and a few special tools. The book really helped a lot as well even though it was more geared (no pun intended) toward the Dodge units.
