glcarter will become famous soon enough
Default NV4500 with NP205

I'm doing a 4bt build with a NV4500 and a NP205, been figuring on changing the aluminum tailshaft housing on the NV4500 to cast iron. been reading older threads 3-4 years old about the cast iron tailshaft housings not being machined correctly. Has anyone used a current production one? are the any better now?

Hate to trash either the trans or transfer case due to one. Must of what I'm seeing is it would knock out the seal between the NV4500 and the NP241 transfer case contaminating the oil in both or putting side strain on the 5th gear output shaft. Running the NP205 I will not use the seal as it will not clear the coupler but, still might side load the output shaft.

Since no one has replied to you as they never do to me. I will give you my opinion. I would say run the updated version and see how it goes. It was updated for a reason.
