BTW, better than 1/2 the failed NV4500's I repair are equipped with dodges "super nut". Thier fix is a joke. It doesn't take a genius to realize while tearing down your first NV4500 that the nut is still in the same place it was when it was originally installed. The nut didn't back off. The interferrence fit that's supposed to be there between the mainshaft and 5th gear is no longer there, you can wiggle 5th gear all over the place if your lucky, if you're not so lucky you can spin 5th gear freely on the shaft.
You're working on all dodge-4500's right? Just curious, My pops had a 92 2500 with the 4500 tranny. It pulled a 30ft gooseneck for 140k for the first owner then another 56k for us hauling firewood & towing (350V8). Never had any OD issues. Even got submerged once (flooded out) and the motor/tranny held up fine after being drained of course :) (Broke the starter - hydrolocked it trying to remove zee aqua):rasta:
