im currently under negotiations on a 84 ram 3500 crew cab short box. It has a 360 with an auto and 205 gear driven transfer case.

I also have a 92 parts truck thats a 3/4 ton it has a magnum 5.2 and nv4500 hd 5 speed.

So my idea is to pull the 5 speed and swap it into the 1 ton, i know the 360 and 318 flywheels are different but would i need a flywheel and clutch for an 84 or a 92? the 5 speed gas 5.9 was pretty rare so i would probably brake the bank buying one from dodge as auto wrecker would be near impossible to find. should i just swap the whole 5.2 in, but id rather build up the 360 and avoid the wiring fun.

secondly the 3/4 ton has a 241 aluminum tc and i think id wanna keep the np205 gear driven, i looked and the auto 205 has the right input to the manual 241, has anyone swapped one of these 205's onto a nv4500 maybe into a new truck? any issues that will pop up on that side?

and to top it off i have a 75 dodge stepside box, should be a sweet project kick ass on any new "megacab"

you cannot take an auto 205 and put on a 5 speed will not work..

not super worried about the 205, but what i read was the auto in the 1 tons had same spline as the manual in the 1/2 and 3/4 tons. but if it dont fit keeping the 241 until i can find a manual 205 isnt a huge deal shouldnt break right away they ran em behind the cummins so sure that old 360 wont break it.

if i was you i would just keep the auto and the 205 until you find a manual 205. manual 205 more common in the diesels then the gassers, and kinda hard to find but they can be had with a bit of hunting.

Ah no. the 205 in the desiels is way different than the gassers. Basicly a fleet cn type truck is your best bet. The gas nv4500/205 combo is very rare.I know this as I only have one of them.

im not a dodge guy. but from what you guys are saying, a dodge np205 that was behind an automatic tranny and a np205 that was behind a manual tranny are 2 different t-cases? whats different? inputs and bolt patterns?

Dodge didn't make any crew cabs in the late 80's or 90's and the nv4500 wasn't built till early 90's. All I know is they are real scarce. Not sure when I'll get a chance in the day to snap any pix. have you goggled it?

your right the get rag is in the 4 door crew cabs and they where only available till mid 80's.

i was thinking it would be easier to find the get rag for his model year with the 205 then it would be to find the nv4500 and 205 combo.
