DETROIT 353 453 3-53 4-53 SAE 3 TO NV4500 ADAPTER KIT

DETROIT 353 453 3-53 4-53 SAE 3 TO NV4500 ADAPTER KIT


Bellhousing and flywheel kit.





For years Power Wagon owners, custom truck builders and rat rod fabricators have dreamed of marrying a Detroit 353 or 453 easily to a NV4500 5 speed overdrive.  Here is the solution.  With a billet 4140 flywheel and bullet proof bell housing that bolts the NV4500 directly to the 2 stroke this kit couldn’t be easier to build.  Now there is no reason to not build the Detroit diesel NV4500 platform.  This kit will also work with the Detroit 453 , Detroit 4-53, Detroit 3-53, Detroit 4-53t, Detroit 6v53t and Detroit 6v53 

Whats included in the kit:

  •   Bell housing that is the adapter plate for the Detroit 353 or Detroit 453 swap
  •   Billet Flywheel CNC cut from 4140 steel
  •   clutch fork
  •   pivot ball
  •   x4 1/2-13 bolts to connect bell housing to NV4500

The gas Dodge NV4500 and the Late style Chevy NV4500 will work with the Dodge diesel input shaft swap; 1 1/4 diameter 10 spline.  Off the shelf clutch kit part #: K70119-01 from your local parts store and slave cylinder part #: CS2324.

Design of Detroit 353 Detroit 453 bellhousing:

  • Roughly 3 inches shorter than stock Dodge NV4500 bellhousing making it the shortest Detroit 353 solution possible to build a Detroit diesel NV4500
  • 356T6 cast aluminum that has been toughness tested with a  12 gauge 0-0 shot from 15 foot (yes we stood behind a forklift to shoot this)
  • For those building a Dodge Power Wagon this transmission is a good choice as it has a pto port; on both sides, for the shaft driven winch.
