Question Solid list of donor vehicles for the NV3500 / NV4500 transmissions

I need to replace my NV3500 transmission and want to pick one up at a junk yard. Maybe upgrade it to the NV4500.

I have a 1994 Dodge RAM 1500 2wd with a NV3500 manual transmission.

I am looking for a solid list of donor vehicles for the NV3500 / NV4500 transmissions.

Please list the YEAR, MAKE and MODEL and if the transmission is a direct fit or if anything needs to be swapped, customized or whatever to make it fit.


I know that the 5.2l Magnum (318) was used in the following vehicles:


Make DODGE
Engine Type V8
Engine Size 5.2L/318
Beginning Year 1992
Ending Year 2003

Make DODGE
Engine Type V8
Engine Size 5.9L/360
Beginning Year 1992
Ending Year 2003

Make JEEP
Engine Type V8
Engine Size 5.2L/318
Beginning Year 1993
Ending Year 1998

Make JEEP
Engine Type V8
Engine Size 5.9L/360
Beginning Year 1998
Ending Year 1998

Edit:

Do you have to move the Cross Member?
27 spline?
32 spline?
Is the shifter is in the same location?
Are both transmissions identical in length?
Do both use the same switch for the reverse lights?
Is the depth of the pilot bushing penetration by the input shaft the same?
Is there is no difference between the 318 and 360 bell housings?
Are the flywheels the same dimensions?
I know the 360's flywheel has some weights on it but those weights don’t change the dimensions at all.
Do both use the same throw out bearing fork and throw out bearing?
Do both use the same dust cover?
Do both use the same starter?
Do both use the same clutch slave cylinder?

All excellent questions . The 5.9 flywheel shouldn't be used on a 5.2 . The flywheel on the 5.9 is for a externally balanced engine only . I'm looking at doing a manual tranny swap into my '01 . But I'm gonna try and get a '01 1500 or 2500 4x4 with a 5.9 as a donor vehicle .

The guys computer at the JunkYard says that the NV3500 from a:

Dodge RAM 1500, in the years of 1994 to 1997

and a

Dodge RAM 2500, in the years of 1994 to 1996

ALL having a 5.2L, 318cid engine are a "drop in fit" with each other.

Anyone have any more information to add? Anyone?!?
