My 4l60e is starting to show its age a bit. Not ready to condemn it yet but it occurred to me that it would not be too difficult (on the scale of trans swaps) to put a NV4500 from a GMT-800 HD truck in place of my 4l60e. I've done a bunch of research on which part numbers I would need and it seems mostly manageable but I have run across something I can't find the answer to online. My NP246 transfer case has the 27 spline input shaft because it's currently hooked up to a 4l60e. The NV4500 has a 32 spline output and was never (as far as I can tell) offered with a NP246, just the NP261 it seems like. However there's a part number for a 32 spline input shaft for a NP246. If I install that input shaft, will I be able to put my NP246 behind a NV4500?
I have a 2001 2500 HD with ZF6 6 speed manual transmission 4*4, I bought the truck at a deal and am finding out why......it's a unicorn...lol. I am just a blue collar worker like most of the rest of us and can't afford the $3500 price tag on a rebuilt trans especially since I don't have a $1000 core transmission to trade them. I still have the transfer case and driveshafts and all other parts to the 4*4 trans..I found a 2wd ZF6 6 speed trans with only 140,*** miles on it I can get at a steal and am wondering if I can change tail shaft and make the 2wd into a 4*4 transmission? Any help would be greatly appreciated even possibly part #'s if possible.....I guess I can drive the truck as a 2wd if I have to but 4wd is one reason I bought the truck....BTW this is my first diesel so any and all help is appreciated..... ONE I WILLIE
Problem: Truck while in 2 wheel drive will sporadically and temporarily tug briefly to the right causing a noticeable pull in the steering wheel to the right. It is only noticed between the speeds of approximately 40-50 MPH. There may be tugs at lower speeds but it is too small to be certain. The tugs do not occur over 50 MPH. The issue cannot be reproduced by the driver. There can be one tug or two to three sequential tugs. The vehicle is problem free prior and after the tugs. The force of the tugs can be mild, moderate or heavy. The tugs are noticed daily closer to the 42 MPH and 50 MPH marks in higher gear while coasting without acceleration or deceleration. For example, truck is accelerated to the 40-50 MPH range and acceleration is softened to allow for coasting in that speed range; the transmission will typically be in a lower gear, higher rpm, for a few moments until it up-shifts to the next higher gear and lower coasting rpm; the sporadic tugs are typically noticed in the lower gear, higher rpm range (1650). It seems that maybe the tugs are more prevalent during the first 5 to 10 minutes of operation from a sitting, parked position (cold engine or hot engine is irrelevant, it appears). Weather and pavement conditions do not affect the problem. Truck tracks straight when not tugging to the right. Problem started around 24,000 to 25,000 miles. Vehicle: 2015 Chevy Silverado, 2500 HD, WT, 6.0L Gas, manual 4x4, dual cab, long bed, tow package, plow package with 26,000 miles currently. Troubleshooting done so far by dealer: (1) corrective alignment; (1) alignment check after corrective alignment; tire rotation; swapping the two tires in front right to left; suspension check; front brake removal, check and lubrication. The dealer is currently stumped. Summary: Dealer has checked for radial pull, mis-alignment, tire pressure and brake issues. The closest guess that I have is from someone else's thread of: passenger side CV shaft going bad. They had what appeared to be the same tugging issues and the CV shaft did not give the tell-tale audible noises of failure. Their passenger side CV shaft just went bad, they changed it and posted that problem was mostly likely solved. I don't know though. Any thoughts??
So I had my transmission replaced a few months back, everything was good until I tried to put it into 4H the other day. I hadn't used 4x since I had the work done, so I didn't notice, but the shift lever doesn't line up with the correct gear. Shifts fine between 4L, N, and 2H. Just shows the wrong gear on the shifter shroud on the floor. It would shift into 4H bit the lever is too far back and won't allow it to go into 4H. Is this just the linkage needing adjustment or is there something more? The transmission mount was old and worn, so I changed it out with no difference.
