Does anyone in the group have any experience with the GM NV 4500 five speed
manual transmission? I recently purchased a rebuilt one and installed it in
my '84 Chev Blazer. Ran great for about 4 months. Than the problems began.
Started to make this thrashing sound, like some bearing was sorta giving
way. Then about a month ago, the 3rd gear synchro began giving me problems.
Today I parked it in the garage at home so as not to drive it.
Fortunately, it is still under warranty and the outfit I bought it from is
going to honor their warranty. But it means another R/R.
The old four speed I took out was practicly bullet proof.
Have I screwed up by replacing the 4 speed?
Am I going to continually have problems with the 5 speed.
It sure is great to have the 0.70 final gear ratio when on the hi-way.
This is my daily driver.
Any wisdom to be shared would be greatly appreaciated!
Thanks to the group,
