    After looking around for a little over a month I have not found a 400/205 for a decent price. I have only found 2. One is hundreds of miles away and the other the guy wants $1000. for the combo. All original from a 77 burb. Hasn't even been rebuilt. What do you guys think $1000. Is it worth it. I might consider since I am 80% complete rebuilding my K5. i am not made of money but dont know what else to do. What do you guys think?

    Unless the tranny was freshly rebuilt, never run and came with a warranty I say that's way too high.

    I've purchased 4 seperate (complete) 400/205 combos none of which were more than $400. Granted none of the 4 had a running tranny but that's only worth about $300 more. Check Ebay, currently there are several of the pieces you need on auction.

    Does that $1000 come with a bottle of lube?

    400/205

    I just picked up a 400/205 for $150.I am going to rebuild the tranny and open the transfercase up to see what kind of shape it is in before I put them in my suburban.It is hard to find 400/205 combos here but I would have to say unless both have been completely rebuilt by a competent shop(with documentation to prove it) $1000 is pretty pricey.

    Maybe its just me but I don't think a '77 burb would have had that combo from the factory. and yes, $1000 is too steep.

    Does that $1000 include the rest of the truck? That is way to much for a tranny/transfer case.
