88 and newer IFS trucks 3/4 - 1t

any solid axle truck would have gotten the 465/205

The 88-89's IFS HD's got the SM465 as an option IIRC and at some point there was a Getrag 5 speed avaliable too. The 4500 was only in 8 lug 3/4 tons and 3500's. The 6 lug 2500's with a stick would have an NV3500.

My 84' K5 also has the 208. 1980 was the last year of the 205.

Halfton with a diesel perhaps?

The gm version of the 4500 had several flavors that I am aware of.
93-94 had a remote located slave cylinder pushing on a manual fork...similar to a hydro setup on a older nv3500 or a sm465. It also had a lower first gear...6.37 or so I belive. 95 went to a 5.76 or so first fear and in 96 I believe they went to a mainshaft mounted slave cylinder.

I could be wrong here...but if you search around some you can find a fairly definitive source.


As far as strength goes...its in the ballpark of the 465. The 465 is a bit stronger but has wider spacing and missing the overdrive 5th. The 4500 originally had a problem with the 5th gear locknut backing off under high loads. The (brass if i remember right) synchros also require special fluid and are the only other weak point I know of. I tend to see them go for 4-600$ used.

I have heard of 1/2 ton trucks with the NV4500 and 9.5" SF rear axle, very rare and required a certain combination of some sort of trailer towing package or the like.

dude, the 205 went all the way to 91.

yes the 203, 205, and 208 all came behind the 465, the 241 could be placed behind it if desired by using the 208 adapter housing [i belive]
