Mainshaft Nut Wrenches

top_page
product note

GM 4x4 and Dodge NV4500 transmissions have 4 slot nuts on the output side of the mainshaft to retain the mainshaft 5th gear. Due too the high torque these nuts are tightened to, it is essential to use the correct wrench for the remove and install the mainshaft nut. All Dodge NV4500 transmissions use 1 of two sizes of spanner wrenches. NV4500HD transmission used in Cummins and V10 powered Dodge RAM models have a large diameter mainshaft nut. For these transmissions select either QT2001 (1/2" drive) or QT2036 (3/4" Drive). For 1992-1993 NV4500 and 1994-2004 NV4500LD transmissions in gas V8 Dodge trucks use QT2002. All GM 4x4 transmissions use the smaller mainshaft nut. Most early and mid production GM NV4500 4x4 transmissions had a vibration dampener which has a recess for the mainshaft nut. QT2028 socket is required to remove/install the mainshaft nut on GM transmissions with the vibration dampener. If your GM NV4500 has the spacer tube instead of a vibration dampener, you can use either QT2002 spanner wrench or QT2028 socket.

Pullers

top_page
product note

Bearing & Gear Puller Components
Speed the disassembly process of your NV4500 rebuild by using pullers specifically designed for the job! These pro quality tools are the same as shown on our NV4500 rebuild video. Bearings are enclosed during pulling reducing the risk of breakage and injury. Due to the cost, we offer these mainly for the pro rebuilder. For the one time rebuild, you probably already have generic pullers that will do the job, however, we want to make sure you know up front what extra tools you may need to perform a rebuild so we have made notes of possible alternatives for each jaw set. Always use eye protection and appropriate safety measures when using these or any other puller. If you are unsure of how to safely pull bearing components, have a machine shop remove your bearings.
