Was wanting to know what would be a good price on a single range 4x4 5 sp tranny and what to look for as far as problems.I located one at a junk yard for $250.00 is this a good deal.
Thanks Steve

Junkyards in my area quote around 450, but you can find a donor car cheaper than that.

I found me a parts car with a 5 sp dual range tranie for $100.

But know I have to deal with a non working car in my yard.

Oh well.

It still should save me some money as opposed to going to a junk yard ever time I need something.

$250 is a good price for a known good transmission in decent shape. do you know the mileage on it? yes, you can find one cheaper than that and you can pick up parts cars for less than that, but $250 isn't bad for a transmission.

i would rather know something about it (like how many miles) before i'd get it right away, i'd keep my eyes open.
if it had 100,000 i'd take it.
150,000 or they don't know i'd probably talk them down.
200,000 i doubt i'd take it.
