SM465 Transmission

Hi,
I am looking for a SM465 Transmission. This is a 4 speed Manual trans. The SM465 was made by General Motors from 1968 to 1991. They are found primarily in GM and Chevrolet trucks, Blazers, Suburbans and many other models falling under the 1/4-ton to 1-1/2-ton platforms (http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/sm465.htm). This summer I am converting my 2.5L auto TJ to a V8 Manual and this would be the toughest and easiest for bolting to the engine and transfer case. I am looking for everything to make the conversion not just the tranny.
Thanks, any help is welcome

That would be great! I'm not looking to spend to much do you know what the price. Also what condition is it in, are the blocker rings intact? ect. And with the bell housing I would need the pressure plate and the throwout bearing.

You won't find one cheaper, rebuilt that is, other than from Novak. Trust me, my son got one from a junk yard, and I had a local guy go through it and it cost me more than buying one from Novak. You cannot beat their deals, and you will have the peace of mind to know that it will last you a long time.

so your saying that it would be better and cheaper for me to just get one from Novak. $1540 just seems a little high

Yes, it cost me over $1800 to have mine rebuilt locally, and I believe I had to get a longer shaft for the t-case. It has been awhile since I had all this done. I also went with the StaK t-case, which already had the various mounting holes on it. Seems that it will depend on the t-case that you are going to use. StaK, and Atlas (I think) have the multible mounting holes around it, to fit to your tranny. If all else fails, give Novak a call, as they are excellent with their product knowledge, and will spend all the time you need, on the phone. I talked to them so much, they started recognizing my voice, when I called.......... Great People!!!!!!!!!
