Ha! Just saw this one and oldram's follow-up where he mentioned using a 465 with a 4BT. I think it's a perfect transmission for a smaller crawler with a low-revving engine, but not for a big 6 cylinder that you expect to drive every day on the highway. You have to jump through too many hoops to make it work, and it's not the best solution for the bigger engine. It's tough to find mating components and the gearing is wrong. Shoulda thought of those things myself late last night, but I was half asleep. And more than a little defensive about it, I think, having mated a Muncie 465 to a 4-cylinder diesel. But yeah, you have to jump through hoops to make it work. Clearing the same hoops won't get you a good application fit with the bigger engine. There's too much torque, and you still need to figure out the gearing issues.so the Muncie is diesel friendly?
