Bunch of funny guys. It will hold me the way it is but I would have to sleep in the fetal position. I figured it would be a easy place for subs but I doubt that will happen.

So I'm pretty sure I'll need a countershaft and input at least for the NV4500 to rebuild it. Does anyone have any pointers on cheap place to get parts? This is my donor though and saved the Duck. Its a 99 24V NV4500 truck with 168k miles.

Guy bought it brand new in highschool. In 07 it became a company truck for there construction company so that's why the body looks like it does. It runs great but I have to rebuild the NV4500 since it just locked up. Im happy with it since I only gave $2500 for it.

Well since the NV4500 needs rebuilt so I figure I need to learn. I ordered this manual and its really nice from what I've read.

Very cool. I'm glad the duck gets to keep its heart. I get to pick up a 24v this weekend too, so once I get another ve setup I'll put it in brownie, so it's a little different than the other two
Ducati- professional nap taker, and thread derailer extraordinaire
Brownie: 80 dodge heavy half. Ghost cummins under the hood, and some sinister plans
The Roo Hunter: 93 w250, lifted, 2 whistle machines, and a bunch of other go fast goodies, uhh..... not there yet
Jaeger: 12 ram 3500. Lifted, exhausted, and fed an excessive quantity of air
The Huntress: 02 Jetta TDI. No muffler, egr, horsepower

If I'm feeling better tomorrow I'm going to try and pull the NV4500 and tear it down.

Got the NV4500 out today. Inside wasn't as bad as I was thinking but the dam case is cracked from the idiots half ass putting it together last time they "fixed" it.

I'd run it with the crack or break out the torch and 7018 rod,but that's me. I would however epoxy the thing to keep it from leaking if I left it,that high up shouldn't leak bad.

Andy what are you gonna do with this mess.....? Are you gonna run the vp setup in your ford? Why not ve the thing while it's all out and be done with the bs pump.
