Will a dodge nv4500 work with a chevy 6.2?

Do I need a custom bellhousing and input shaft?

maybe one of you guys knows the answer...I don't know who else to ask...

For background...I am planning on running a 6.2 diesel in a Range Rover classic. It is a common enough swap, however people overwhelmingly mate it up to the stock zf 4hp22...I've figured (with the help of a guy from advanced adapters) a way to divorce my transfer case...which means I can run a 2wd transmission behind the 6.2.

So here I am trying to source a 2wd nv4500. I found a dodge one...I need to see what it would take to mate it to the chevy...

Anyway, help is appreciated.

I think the Chevy bell housing/input shaft would make it a bolt in deal

Thx for the response ...so I found out there is a 275 dollar spacer from advanced adapters that mates the Dodge bellhousing to the Chevy.

Has anyone ever done this or know of pitfalls I should expect?

A stock 96'+ bellhousing from a Chevy will bolt up. So will the input. Don't waist your money with the idiots over at AA.

If they had it there way you would have to spend $1000 to bolt a Chevy 4500 to a Chevy motor.


Edit: I'm not entirely sure that the bellhousing is the same shape for the 6.2/6.5 Diesels, but I think they are.

Huh? No, you need a Chevy bell housing And a Chevy clutch, and a Chevy NV4500 input shaft installed in the Dodge NV4500. The Dodge's input shaft stick-out is ~1" longer than a Chevy's. The Chevy bearing retainer/front "snout" must be turned down to fit a Chevy throw-out bearing (presumes you want an external slave cylinder). With the Chevy input shaft, the Dodge tranny becomes a "Chevy", as far as the Chevy Bell housing is concerned. Also, when it comes to NV4500's, there are two different bolt patterns. So you need to insure your tranny will fit what ever bell-housing you're going to use. Look at the Advanced Adapter's catalog; they sell NV4500's, bell-housings, clutches, slave cylinders, etc, and have guidance as to what fits what.

The adapter allows you to use a dodge nv4500 with a more common,[and cheaper],chevy sm465 4spd. bellhousing.

No fucking kidding. Here's another news flash for you, dumbass. A Dodge bellhousing won't bolt to a Chevy engine.
