How much would yall say the NV4500 5 speed transmission and transfer case weigh with and without fluids?

Gonna do the clutch this weekend and i wanna make sure i have a trans jack strong enough to not have to worry about it not being able to get it up.

id prefer to not drain the trans and trans case if i dont have to as im out a job and money is tight right now.

guess the better question is does it weigh under 800 lbs ?

I'm not a transmission tech but I'd bet a large sum that gearbox is half that or less.:thumbsup:

the tranny weights like 300 pounds tops. . . and the t case weights like 120. . . i picked up the t case and my buddy bolted it on. And we both took the tranny on and off the jack by ourselfs.

If it is the about $139 model it will be just fine, that is the one I bought and pulled the trans and transfer case as one. Sure made putting back together a snap.

(NV4500HD) is 250 lbs and transfer case (NV241HD) is 100 lbs. Thats before adding shrink wrap and a pallet to ship. Both pallets were about 39lbs, and oil drained before shipping. I used a 1100 lb low jack, it did not hesitate a bit. Reason I sent transfer case out is I do not have time to go through it. Wanted gears and chain replaced when reattached to the tranny.
