That's what I was thinking, no pick-a-parts here, nearest is 3hrs drive away. So, getting a good selection of used engines is hard.

Found this on eBay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/251518250514...84.m1423.l2649

Dodge NV4500, 23-spline only. These guys are into 4BTs. No provision for transfercase shifter or LR mounts. Guess you could use the single Dodge transmission mount and a custom cross member.

I always wanted to put a 4BT in a Defender.

Nv4500

The GM NV4500 arrived. Looks like it will fit. Slight trimming on the tail housing required. Same place as on the 6L80e.

Hydraulic clutch will make it easy to plumb to the Defender clutch master.

Still need to measure the shifter position and trim the tail housing.

I think looking at the installed pic, if anyone uses an early ('93 - '94) box with the original bell hsg the throw out arm/slave cyl might be in the way of the drive shaft as it sticks out just below the starter. In that instance using the Advance Adapters kit or a modified ('95 onwards) hsg with the internal slave cyl (as yours has) would be the way to go as both exit on the drivers side. Looking at the cost of bell hsg's on Ebay & the cost of getting the machining done the AA kit is prob a better option & you get the external slave cyl too for easier servicing.

The GM NV4500 shifter appears to be 3" forward from the LT77 location.

What's the distance between the shifter center lines (in red), I have an auto at present so no existing gear stick to reference off.

Thanks.....

Cheers

More useful info if going Advanced Adaptor bell housing route :


AA Part #712576 bell housing
AA Part #715535 hydro clutch slave cylinder bracket
Napa Part #NCF 73117 Clutch Slave Cylinder
Napa Part #UP 38559 MC to Slave hose (don't know if this'll work with the LR master cyl though)
