The NM transfer case should bolt straight up to the back of the NP 5 speed. But the NM 5 speed wont bolt straight up to the 3.2 litre motor. Yes, the bell-housing will need to change, but I'd suggest the input shaft would also have to change as I believe it is longer on a diesel. I think the gear ratios might also be different. Early NM 5 speeds also had some problems with jumping out of gear. I'd be trying to source a new transfer and have the existing 5 speed checked over / new input shaft bearings, and probably a new output shaft (I'll bet the splines are almost worn off). Hard part will be sourcing a manual transfer case. Rare as can be and different to the auto.

Don't ask how I know all this.
