Hi just purchased my big bolt, its still in the States waiting to get it shipped, is there any UK members out there,? i am looking for a NVG4500 5 speed transmission, i am sure the must be some one in UK who has one sitting in there garage, pm me if you can help,
Hi Mike firstly welcome,sorry I haven't responded sooner,I don't check in here as much as I should.
To be honest this forum isn't as active as it should be,probably more so at this time of year as most of us are out there enjoying driving and showing our trucks given our relatively short 'show season'.
In fact mine is pretty much a daily driver these days.
I'm not sure if you partake in other social media such as Farcebook but there are UK specific Chevy truck/American car and parts pages on there.
I'll put some feelers out for you,I would dearly love a 5 speed in mine to but finances are a little shy at the moment.
What engine are you mating it to and I assume you will require a flywheel,clutch etc?
There are other UK based sites such as Rods 'n' sods,NSRA,Pistonheads etc that are aimed at the US/collector car market.
I actually used a partsfinder site to locate a small block and transmission for mine.
I got a response within 12 hours from a specialist breakers in Wigan and have since clocked over 3000+ relatively trouble free miles on my 'cut out' engine and box from an '81 Corvette.
A 3 or 4 speed auto gets old quick,we 'Brits' are too used to stirring cogs!
What 'Big bolt' are you awaiting?
