|Bearing and Seal Kits|
|Torque King® Complete Bearing and Seal are true original equipment replacements with the exact Timken® and Torrington™ bearing numbers as supplied by New Venture. This is important because of the 8 tapered roller bearing components used in the NV4500 are high-performance versions of standard size bearings. These bearings are identified with unique suffixes. While standard bearings may dimensionally interchange, they do not meet the strict New Venture design specifications and may not provide satisfactory service life in Diesel and high performance gas applications. Our budget priced Custom Kits are a good quality alternative for your less demanding gas or small Diesel application.|

|5th Gear Kits|
If you had the back of the mainshaft nut off your NV4500 and the mainshaft is still good, you can replace the mainshaft 5th gear without removing the transmission with one of our mainshaft nut and fifth gear kits. 5th Gear Kits are really just a stop-gap repair to buy you time. Why? Because the actual cause of your nut backing off is radial movement from inadequately supported fifth gears on factory and full spline Mainshafts working against the nut set until it loosens. If used with a mainshaft that has just had it's first failure, you may get months or years of use from one of these Kits before the nut backs off again. However, the more worn the shaft, the quicker the failure. So if you install a new gear on a used shaft that has had several previous failures, don't expect much life out of the fix! For more information, read Tech Article about 5th Gear Failures and Solutions!

The inner and outer rings are made of stamped steel and may be reused if they are not scored or burned. To be on the safe side, we always replace all the synchro rings with Genuine New Venture rings during a rebuild. We recommend you do as well!|
|Tailshaft Housing Kits|
We documented two major problems with Cast Iron tailshaft housings in March of 2006. Read our Tech Article to learn more!
There are a number of companies importing cast iron housings. We have checked every make we could find and every single one has problems with either fit or bolt distortion (or both). As of June 2011, over 5 years since we brought the situation to light, we still have not found a company that can consistently supply accurate NV4500 tailshaft housings so we have dropped them from our inventory.
(continued from above).......saving a few dollars with less than the best parts does not provide the longevity and performance needed in a high torque environment. Our our Torque King® NV4500 Kits are simply the highest quality and most comprehensive NV4500 rebuild, overhaul, and service kits you can get. Don't have a fire-breathing dragon under the hood? For your less demanding applications, we also offer a selection of good quality Custom Kits using aftermarket components. Our Custom Kits are just the ticket for your gas application or budget constrained project.
