Starting about the same project on my jeep at this time.

Can you tell me more about the adapter to make the NSG370 fit the 4BT?

What version of 4BT did you use? The Ford or GM?

Does the Novak adapter bolt directly to the 4BT block or use the bell housing adapter plate that came with the truck?

What did you use for a clutch and flywheel?

I am not able to view your pictures on the apple website BTW. Do you have them posted somewhere else?

Thanks!

the adapter is a 1/2" plate of steel CNC cut
it bolts to the gm adapter housing
yes, when you order you adapter BE SURE TO TELL THEM to
put in the 10 degrees or so to level the engine to transmission
your gm adapter tilts the motor in the stepvan to clear the throttle linkage or something like that.
I used a 1966 Corvette clutch I will try to find a number for you
yea they did away with the free web hosting on apple
sorry bout the pics

Awesome. Thanks for the reply.

I had been reading that with the GM adapter you were not able to run the AC compressor due to the twist. Good to know that the adapter plate can remove that offset.

Was there a clutch to flywheel adapter as well?

What shaft size was the NSG370?

It lists a few different ones with that part number.

Advanced Adapters makes bellhousings that will adapt the Jeep transmissions to either the Ford or Chevy bolt pattern flywheel housings. They also make an adapter plate so you can adapt the Jeep transmissions to Ford or Chevy bellhousings.
