If I never haver to do that again, it'll be too soon! The critical thing (assuming you didn't step on the clutch pedal) is the input shaft of the trans has to be at the same angle from horizontal as the crankshaft of the engine. One thing you cannot do is get the trans part way into the clutch hub then let the weight of the tail of the trans hang on it.

will do, I bought one but apparently but the part that connects the adapter to the cross member isn't as tall as the one that came off of it, even though I was told it was for a K2500.

Couple of things...



Has anyone pushed the clutch in with the tranny out?


It would be much easier with the bell attached to the tranny and you could make sure the clutch splines are lined up with the pilot bearing.


Next, a couple pieces of threaded rod will help line everything up and give some wiggle room pulling things together. it's a job without the better tools and work area but it can be done, like others have said, everything will need to be straight to each other, you may need to jack the rear of the motor up some if it's hanging down, maybe remove the tranny cross member if you haven't..

I am unsure if anyone has pushed the clutch in. guess I will need to get an alignment tool to test that. the N208 transfercase and crossmember has been pulled, but the adapter is different than what was in there and isn't the same size. not sure if it was orginal or taken off of another vehicle and I can not find a photo of a stock 82 K2500 to compare it to.

So I got the transmission back in and as I was afraid the adapter for the NP208 and sm465 I bought was the wrong one. Can anyone please tell me which is the right one. I would love a part number or a link to one for sale. the one I have is the right attachments just the part that you sit on the cross member is to short.


Edit one: apparently the one I have is for a late 80's truck.

Hi
Can you post pictures of the two side by side?
Have you thought about using a spacer to get the proper height?
Sucks when stuff isn't right.
i had a nightmare tranny change in my Topkick,it really sucked and took a bunch of time because the tranny came from a shop 1600 miles away,and the owner has a habit of forgetting about you unless you were in his face hassling him.

That is the best I can do as I have not photos of them side by side, but it looks like a spacer would work, I just do not know how big

OK I have it in place and need about a 4 inch spacer, I will work on this later with a 4x4 timber as a temp spacer.
