Nv4500, brand new 4x4 conversion already leaking
Hey everybody, I signed up to this forum bc I know cummins are popular and get a lot of attention. I've got a 1 1/4 ton Chevy with a 6.5 5 speed. Hopefully someday I'll swap the 6.5 for a cummins. Anyways the truck is a 99 c3500HD that I converted to 4wd, installed a front Dana 70 and had a good mechanic convert the nv4500 to a 4x4. The HD only came as a 2 wheel drive. I've got about 3,000 miles on the rebuild and it seems that my input seal is leaking. Got all new quality parts, I'm using correct gear oil and no I didn't overfill it. Pilot bushing is brand new etc. mechanic says that sometimes you just get a bad seal. Just looking for some more suggestions on why this seal failed so quick. I'm pulling the transmission tomorrow. Excuse me for coming to a cummins site with a Chevy, but I see a lot of good advice on these forums compared to just regular Chevy diesel forums. And also the nv4500 is found behind a cummins also. Thanks!
