thrashingcows ^^^^Yup I agree.

I remember reading about one person who picked up 3 different NV5600 trannies from "low mileage" trucks out of a local wrecker before he found one that was rebuildable. There are internal bearing issues I think that can't be seen or diagnosed unless you pull the main cluster out of the case. So may seem like a good tranny until you get it apart. And then there is the lack of replacement parts, not supported in the aftermarket for hard internal parts, and if you can find them they are big buck$$$!

1070 do a search on a nv5600. parts are very hard to find for the early ones and very costly for the newer ones. better to go up to a g56 trans.

thrashingcows Basically the same parts as the NV4500....just a bigger tranny, and the cross member and mounts might be different?

langley02 So what would I need parts wise for the 5600 swap?

Excellent news!

I was getting real annoyed picking up people's post-swap G360 leftovers... and no fork

langley02 How about the nv5600 6 speed, is that a possible first gen swap? I've personally never seen it done

slow600 i took apart and used 2ng gen pedals. the shaft was the same dia etc. swapped over to the 1st gen pedal assy. heated up the pedal slightly to move it, more a personal preference thing

langley02 Would the second gen pedal assembly work or would I have to get a whole new assembly?

u2slow Get a set of 1stgen pedals (hydraulic; 88?-93).... and all the NV4500 stuff from a 2ndgen cummins truck. (incl. starter, flywheel housing, and bellhousing).

The problem with using the advance adapters bellhousing kit is you need the Getrag's clutch fork, which are impossible to find on their own.
