I am installing a NV4500 and it currently sits at 2.5*, sloped to the rear.
It is sitting on the skidplate (not mounted yet).
What I am trying to figure out is whether it can stay at 2.5*, go maybe to 0* or does it need to be nearer the "stock" engine angle of 5* (measured of a stock CJ that a buddy of mine has).
I can mount the NV now, but that will push the trans a little higher (clearing with a 1.25" body lift I hope) and that may push the engine more toward 0*.
I will be running an electric fan, so that isn't an issue.
I'll have to work out driveshaft angles as well. Need to give Tom Woods a call.
Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more, you should never wish to do less.
