Is this conversion worth it?
Thanks for the info guys!
Rock, Mine is going between a 304 and a 300.
I called novak and found that its going to cost me about $550. to put my free tranny in. The adapters included for that price are the t-18 to d-300 adapt. with a built in mount and a dual pattern so i can clock my 300, the tail shaft, the tranny mount and a pilot bushing to compensate for the shorter input shaft of the t-18.
I will also need a friction plate to fit the 1 1/16 dia. shaft, and need to have the old bell housing holes filled in and drill and tap new ones to match the T-18.
Is it worth it to clock the transfercase with this tranny? the t-18 seems like it will hang about 2" lower than the t-5 was and doesnt look like ill be able to mount it high enough to run a new flat skid pan from frame rail to rail like i could with the t-5
Anyone know of any other advantages to clocking the t-case other than ground clearance?
Is this conversion worth it? are you guys happy with yours? Ideally i'd put an nv4500 in for the decent low gear and nice overdrive for the road, but its just to damn expensive!
Thanks again for your input guys!
