That snake is pretty much the coolest thing ever. I'm thinking we've all figuerd out you can handle this without the armchair quarterbacking, but I'd love to see how you are doing with the swap. I'm about to get back into mine.

'swap'. Yeah. Well at this point I'm down to a gas tank (soon to come out) and a pair of axles...which will be off at some point too.

I was just in the UK, so picked up a 1:1.003 LT230 gear set from Ashcroft - something that had been nagging at me. So no longer worried about rpm's and drivability - at least in that area. While I have the t-case apart, it's been much easier to see how long the adapter from the NV needs to be to clear the 5th gear casing - 3" will do it. Also easier to measure up and model the input face on the LT so I can draw up my adapter plate. So FINALLY I can get on with my adapter, NV main shaft mods, and input gear mods. I'm going to build three sets of adapters. One of the input gears will be my old 1:1.2 gear and the other two will be for 1:1.003 gear. Unfortunately, to preserve the PTO dog teeth on the input gear, the splining will have to done by sinker/ram EDM. Not sure why I want to keep my PTO - maybe just because I have one. It means I'll have to modify the middle cross member - but I need to make it removable anyway as the drive train (clutch, t-case) is too long to service with it in place.

still tidying up the bulkhead with sound dampening (someone mentioned it would be a good idea). I don't want to talk about the heated windscreen.

I'd be making a little more progress if the kitchen-remodel-from-hell wasn't also part of my life. Hammered Copper counter tops? Really Honey? from Montana? How many weeks??????

What spline are you punching out again? I would be in for a GM 32 spline pattern. I can supply the gear. No need for the adapter plate but the gear would be really useful for me.

I know the feeling. My NV4500 swap started out simple. I now have a CNC plasma cut chassis in pieces in the shop.

JL - yes, the 32 tooth, 1.375" OD GM spline. I'll be putting it into the second bearing race but not through to the smaller neck that holds the PTO dog tooth. I have the male on that long tail variant output shaft as a master, so the broacher can make sure it's right. I'd be happy to include yours - I plan on getting to mine in the next month. PM or email me

So, heres a question: Why not use a Toyota split case from a 60 series? Adapters are readily available to go NV4500 to the case from AA.

The split case is way weaker than an LT230...

Additionally:
The LT230 has a lower low ratio stock.
The length of adaption is less. Our adapter is only 2 3/8" long (vs. AA's 6+") as it uses a re-splined transmission output shaft vs. a spud adapter. This drive train is long and has me hard up against my middle cross-member as is.

Cool

Old thread but very curious if it turned out a success! Any pictures? And final tips for someone that is planning to tackle the same project?
