Looking to do a manual swap in my 96 cummins.
found a 96 2500 with a 5.9 v8 with a 5spd. a guy is telling me the 2500's v8's has a nv4500, is this true? and will it bolt right up to my cummins?

we read a shop manual and it says there is a heavy duty nv4500 and a light duty nv4500 and some of the v8's had a heavy and light duty and some of the cummins has a heavy and light nv4500 is this true as well?

thank's

its an NV4500, but its not much use to you....

Your looking for an NV4500HD (V10 gassers and cummins's used them), which the biggest difference is the input shaft. the v8 gassers used the standard duty nv4500

what he said....the input shaft is the biggest difference....chevy's used 4500's too ans also utilized a much better fixed output yoke design but the smaller input shaft...there are also some differences in years and bell housing to trans bolt patterns but i dont think dodge had that issue

It would be less work to find a 4500 that was behind a V-10 or a Cummins. Look for one that WILL fit, not a cheap one the might fit after you spend more money on it.
