Re: Rebuild kit for manual tranny, w/ bearings & synchros -- on eBay

That's a really good price. I paid $750 for mine a couple years ago from a local shop.

Re: Popping Noise In 5th

I did remove the freeze plug and put in a new bearing.

I'll have to try the grease trick. I have some transmission assembly lube that's pretty tacky. I'll check for the 53. Thank you, again.

Re: Popping Noise In 5th

To clarify, the housing is cast with the hole but it is not finish machined (still rough cast) and needs to be cleaned up before you can shift into reverse with out issue.

Ok, the detents were a pain on that cluster. I'll have to take her apart and look. Thank you for the direction.

Re: Fwd vs 4wd front differential

all manual tranny "bellhousings" for FWD and 4WD manual transmissions are the same (the differential gear ratios can be different) There is an exception to this, I found out the hard way and after 2.5 years of frustration. The 4 speed bellhousings are cast the same as the others but not finish mach...

Re: changes to T4's over the years

Through my recent transmission rebuild, I've found that the diff cover on 83 trans have a raised Aisin and the 85 trans does not. The input shaft retaining plate on the 83 is smooth and the 85 has a raised Aisin. Also after talking to the Toyota dealer, 83 5 and 6 spds can have either 19 or 20 teeth...

Re: need transmission for 85 4x4 in salt lake city

Find a local shop that specializes in manual or Toyota transmissions, an independent shop that rebuilds in house. They usually have a stock pile of parts (used, NOS, aftermarket, etc.). I use A1 transmissions here in Denver. They were able to get me a full rebuild kit for my 2wd 5spd for less than h...

Re: German Accessories Brochure....

True exchange rates can pose a problem. I guess the next step is to see if we can come up with enough interest and a reliable contact down under.

Re: German Accessories Brochure....

Yeah I expect shipping would be horrible. But if we could get enough interest, maybe we could get shipping per item down to something palatable.

Re: German Accessories Brochure....

Sorry for bringing back an old thread. But would any of our European counter parts be kind enough to let us know the availability of the bumpers and the larger rims from salvage yards, etc. I would definitely like a set of the standard bumpers as well as the multi spoke 14 alloys. I'd also love a co...
