SBC V8 --> NV4500 --> Dana 300 Tranny Configuration

Need some help. I distinctly remember reading somewhere on this forum about the ideal set up for an NV 4500 mated to the SBC and Dana 300. Something about getting a GM NV4500 (2WD or 4WD?) and swapping the tail shaft or tail housing of a dodge NV4500 in order to shorten the overall length of the transmission AND couple with the Dana 300.

Am I dreaming this or does this thread exist? I cannot find it if it does exist and could use some help.

FYI, looking to source a tranny and want to get the right one.

THanks,

Here's how I did it:

SBC

Dodge gas version NV4500

SBC bell housing.

Adapter between tranny and bell housing.

Dodge version bolts right to the Dana 300 as is.

Usual release bearing adapter stuff, pilot bushing/bearing/arm

What are the differences between the gas & diesel versions of the NV4500? I have a 4WD diesel vèrsion from a Dodge 5.9L Cummins. It also has some type of overdrive unit as well.

I'd like to use it behind a SBC project.

Diesel has a bigger output shaft. Won't work with a Dana 300.

The one I have needs a rebuild, and it needs a new input shaft as well. Maybe I can install a gas version mainshaft while I'm rebuilding it?

These dudes can tell you everything you need to know about the 4500.
