     The v-drive in the 4106 limits you to the v730, which is a 3 speed(won't fit in the 4104).

        "never say never".

It just depends on the size of your hammer or checkbook.

I agree. It's certainly possible, if you change the engine and rear axle, to make the v730 fit in your 4104.

WildBob -

Uncle Ned has a 6V92T bolted to a V-730 shoehorned into the engine compartment of his 4104 - a common swap, btw.

Don't remember if he said he used a 4106 or later rear axle, or if he flopped the 4104's and re-indexed the pumpkin.

But it works - sounds sweet, too!

FWIW & HTH. . .

RJ,

Yes, I remembered reading that somewhere, hence my reference to changing the engine and axle. When I worked for Ray Cox at Coach Services in Atlanta, we had a customer with that same conversion. It was done using a 4106 axle.

My earlier reply to Art was in reference to using a V730 in a 4104 with the original engine and axle. Won't fit.
