np435 is in

Post #1 by kirkallen143 » Wed Jun 13, 2007 8:44 am

Just stuck the np435 behing the 200 last weekend, me and Jerry (bigjhoov). Went in like it was made for it, only modification was to re-drill crossmember mounts. I did have to shorten my back drive shaft, only because previously I had it lengthened for the suspension lift. This swap adds about 2" to the drivetrain length. I used the aluminum plate adapter and my original inline six intermediate housing (had to cut the yoke nut threads off the back of the np435 output shaft so it would mate up). And the way it drives now, I should have done this a long time ago.

you've got a heck of a work crew helping you there! Do you keep them around because their little hands can get to the tough-to-reach bolts easier?

How did you know? And they work for candy, too. Yeah they are mine, all four of them. The oldest, not shown, was in the bronco giving orders of course.

I knew because I have two little helpers myself! And yes, the 9 yr old does enjoy ordering around the 6 yr old... :D

Hey bro, I'm about to drop an NP435 in my own Bronco and was wondering if you have any tips for me? I do have a few ?'s for you and was hoping you could help: I noticed that your tranny has a shifter with 2 bends, did it come like that or did you do that (I have only 1 bend in mine as it stands right now); can you tell me where you bought the adapter/spacer was purchased; how did you redrill the adapter housing and what was the shape of the housing (was it an upside down house shape, like the one I have); did you have a HEF tranny to start? I'm really itching to get this thing in, any info would be much appreciated.

it's a 5 yr old thread 66poney. he may not B around anymore. Go to classicbroncos.com and scroll thru the stickies till U C an NP install thread. It'll have pic'n everything....
Good luck, hit me back here or on my email included in my signature below....

if U have HEF I guess U have V8? may need tailshaft housing from a 6 as adapter? They'll know.

Actually, I have the 6 adapter... maybe I'm not looking in the right places but I was under ths impression that only the 6's came with the HEF. I also didn't bother to notice that the thread was so old, so thanks for the heads up. I'll check out CB and see what they say... Thanks!

If you want something sweet, put a "GearBanger" shifter on that NP435. Put one on my last project. Makes a world of difference in shifting.

Damn, that is a SWEET setup! It seems pretty simple in design, I would imagine that you could fabricate it if you had some decent welding skills...
