And because I need some way to torque the rear nut, and the O.E. tool is apparently hard to find, I made this out of some scrap metal. I'll see how it works later/tomorrow. I added a bolt and nut, welded nut to bolt, and bolt to the 'tool', just after I took this picture. Also the little tabs are welded on the backside, although there isn't much material...

So I think my tool works ok, but I think the bolt(grade 10.9 metric) I welded to it was starting to break by the time my torque wrench clicked at 250ft-lb. I'll figure something out if I rebuild another nv4500.

But almost complete, just need to clean the top cover. Then I get to mutilate my newly painted floor and fresh vinyl floor...gonna be worth it though!

And some more...








Transfer case is almost completely in, my carpal tunnel was getting the best of me, plus it's feeling like 120 with the humidity. So I still need a couple bolts, re-attach and adjust 4x4 lever (it's always been a little out of wack-made going into 4 low pretty hard) put clutch slave, exhaust and driveshafts in. Then a few minor things to clean up the interior.

Question - as this was an auto originally, do you have the low hump floor without the removable section? As I'm working a TH400 > NV4500 swap, I'm trying to determine if it will fit under the stock floor or if I will need to cut and install a high-hump center.

The only low hump applications was 2 wheel drive automatics. All 4x4 and manual transmission models got the high hump.

So since mine was originally a 4x4 model, even though it was an automatic, it came with the high hump.

How much clearance do you have between the trans and the hump? I have a 2wd automatic...

Like 2 inches max. The manual transmission don't slope back like an automatic. Your going to definitely want to swap in a new hump. What I would do is cut a high hump out and create a removable tunnel. Use some foam weather stripping and self tapping screws to hold the new tunnel.

Thanks! I think that is my plan.
