The faithful old family suby is finally getting a bit tired out and its time to get the transmission taken care of now thats its got a fairly fresh 50k mile ea82.

Im either looking for a shop in or around Salem OR that could rebuild it for a good price or a guide and parts list on how to do it my self, ive been reading quite a lot the past few hours but havent come up with much usefull info. It's a
4wd 5 sp manual d/r.


Thanks for the help

search for 'governor shaft'.

i am assuming you have an automatic that isnt shifting properly? Cleaning the governeor shaft is simple to try first.

wow I would think it would ber cheaper to get a good used transmission from a salvage yard, they last forever, well i guess yours didnt, but they are pretty hardy

unfortunately not, syncro's are nearly gone and there is quite a lot of play, not to mention the bearing whine.

It's not economical to rebuild them - it runs about $500+ in parts and the labor is pretty high - you need a press at the least and it would be helpful if you have experience rebuilding this sort of thing. If you find a shop that's willing to do it you are probably looking at no less than $1000 to have one rebuilt with new bearings, syncro's, seals, etc. Remember that it's not just a transmission - it's also a front diff, and a transfer case all in one unit - it's actually called a transaxle. When you consider what it would cost to have all three of those items rebuilt on a truck you understand why it's so costly.

For under $200 you can get a good condition used transmission.

Your choice.

eesh, didn't think it would be that much to rebuild it ourselves, i did know the trans axle stuff.

I'm gonna guess Craigslist or eBay for transmissions? but what do i look for when picking one other than low ish miles?

Typically junk yard or forum members actually. Ebay and craigslist rarely have the sort of transmission you are looking for.
