    It's only a 241. Generous Motors used them too. The joy of the Dodge case is the fact that it has a fixed rear yoke. Can run without the rear driveshaft.

    I agree. Fortunately, the transmission being New Venture Gear is only part Dodge. Since New Process made the case, I guess it's close enough, it was a Chrysler company. I still hold hope that it will be a good combo.

    Replaced the broken and rusty tailgate cables with new.

    Took me a minute to figure out the springs, but it is obvious one you look at them.

    Flushed the cooling system. Used Blue Devil which can be left in 3-5 days so hoping for no freezing weather. There is some debris on the tube ends so hopefully this elixir will clean the nasties. No oil, minimal rust. I replaced the o-rings on the engine oil cooler lines, no leaks so far.

    This sounds like you'll have a real good hi-way rig ! The NP241 isn't that bad of a transfer-case, and the NV4500 is a pretty good transmission. Not as strong as that SM465 your replacing, but strong enough.

    That's what I'm figuring. The truck tows very little, barely has enough power to hurt itself so the 4500 should be okay. As long as I keep everything tight, the 241 should survive as well. I haven't measured the length difference but either way, I'll mothball the original driveshafts in case the 465 goes back in.

    I think you said Dodge NV4500? If so you may want to verify it has the upgraded fifth gear nut. While it tends to be a problem only on the HD 4500 (with the larger input, used behind Cummins motors) all the Dodge 4500 had incorrect spline geometry on the fifth gear, causing walking and eventual loss of fifth gear retaining nut.

    The dodge has the higher first, and with my truck, (3.42 axle gearing) I really don't use it that much, but second is also higher, to reduce the second to third split. Mine is the GM mid version (smaller input bearing retainer, no synchro reverse, but gear ratios are same as dodge and later GM) with my use, I really should have waited for the early super low first.

    The 241 is as strong as the np208, whether the Dodge or GM 88-91 square body version.

    The nv4500, without an adapter plate is 1/4" longer max. I think machining makes up the differences, because mine was spot on same length as the SM465 I replaced. Although I have seen some photos online where the cases are up to 1/4" off.

    Brought the 6.5 inside. It sits in the living room now (house isn't habitable yet ).

    Right now, I've set my mind on keeping the CUCV belt system. Removed alternators, power steering pump and brackets from the 6.2. Found one broken bracket.
