Now, as a long time forum member, I try to refrain from asking stupid questions. So here we go...
My question is in regards to dropping my 47rh in favor of either a g56 or nv5600.
95, 4x4, 241dhd t-case.
Reason being is that the 47rh is almost as long or longer than the above two transmissions.
But I can not for the life of me and all my internet searching find an exact measurement on how long all three are
Last I knew, the 5600 was roughly 32" from bellhousing to t-case flange. But I need confirmation.
G56 would be lovely if I could find one...
I'm just trying to be lazy and not order new drivelines or jack around with cutting stuff up. And I know they are very close, but maybe not close enough...
Simply want to drop the perfectly functioning RH for a 6spd manual. Far as I know only mods I would need to the truck are a hole in the floor, figure out a t-case shifter setup (probably just to the 98+style) and figure out the simple wiring. Change input spline on t-case.
That's all I want to do is keep it simple. Any info would help if anyone has exact measurements of what I'm after (overall length of each unit listed above).
If I cant find what I'm looking for, I'll probably source stuff for a nv4500 swap since those are more available. Although, if I ever strike it rich, maybe a built 47rh would be better for a "fun truck". But for now let's assume the truck is staying 100% stock.
Someone talk me out of this.
