I am currently re-reading Keith's a518 thread as well as yours. The thing is my truck is 4x4 so it may not be as simple as 2wd.

Judging by the sound on the video What do you think broke? To me, it felt like the input shaft snapped, but i do not know for sure. There was no power being transfered at all. It did not engage in any gear. I am trying to think if "park" was working, i put the e-brake on as soon as i came to a stop.

Sounds bad throw it in the junk pile! The 518/46rh setup in full manual mode with the RE 4x4 OD unit will bolt directly into the truck. I am in the process of completing this very setup in a power wagon with a blower. I will know better this weekend as to how it will all fit together. His truck has no trans no driveshafts or anything in it as it was all taken out when the trans blew awhile back. Soon there will be another converted truck rolling around

I am not sure i would want a full manual vb for this truck just yet. Wouldn't it be possible to build the "re" version and have some sort of stand alone computer control it?

Tranzilla, Transmissions, Transfer Cases, OEM parts - Rockland Standard Gear - Rockland Standard Gear, Inc. just saying
I don't think there is anyone doing a stand alone for the 545.
a 5184x4 swap wouldn't have to be full manual, I think the issue is trying to control the trans.
