    I'm finally getting around to ditching the 3-on-the-tree for a SM465. So about how much for a rebuild? Anything to make the tranny better in any way? I'm in Maryland if that makes a difference in price. Thanks alot guys.

    Just like any tranny or engine build, you really won't know the cost until you have it apart and find out what all needs replacing.

    You can buy rebuild kits for the 465 for between $80-120 from what I've seen, again though, it depends on what needs replacing. Your shift fork coating could be gone, and thats more money to replace them. Still won't know until it's opened up.

    here is what I spent on my 465 rebuild:
    Output shaft: $170 (10 spline to 32 spline Brand new!)
    3 bushings that are pressed on the shaft: $40
    Bearing and seal kit: $110
    3rd Gear anti pop out gear w/ shift colar: $260
    New adpater: $60

    That's $640 plus odds and ends like oil and grease and ho tanking it..... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    a guy out here charges 600 without the top plate being checked and new bushings to tighten it up a but. 650 to 675 for one with the top plate. thats without me bringing one in, so figure a 100 for a core or so.

    Just rebuild it like you would the tranny. Get the kit with new bearings, seals, etc.

    I got the full master overhaul kit with gaskets and everything you need from Novak for around $120 shipped. All I need is a gear puller like you buy off the shelf at the auto parts store, a couple of sockets, a screw driver and access to a shop press. If you don't count your time, and dont have any broken components just add a couple cans of paint and some gear oil to the $120 and your good. As simple as these things are to rebuild, and as bullet proof as they are, there is no way I would pay to get a remanned one from the parts store. A warranty on this transmission would mean nothing to me because they almost do not tear up , and in the unlikely event that it did, its stupid-simple to repair yourself.
