    this weekend I got a price to rebuild my 465/205, the guy told me a grand if I take it out myself, all other local shops won't do it I was told by one guy the trans was fine and it has worked well but when I push in the clutch to shift it clunks, is that normal? what do you guys think is a grand seem like alot to you? I guess I could run it till it breaks and get another setup from the bone yard it would just suck to break it far from home, u joints are new and rearend backlash is fine all mounts are good does anyone else's 465 do the same? /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Could be a worn output shaft stub...you'd have to split the tranny and T-case apart and check the splines on the back of the tranny and the front of the T-case.

    check to make sure the bolt between the bellhousing and block are tight, also between the bellhousing and the transmission.

    pretty sure everything is tight, but I'll check because splitting it appart does not sound like fun but it does sound better then -$1000 , thanks for info /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    depends what the builder is gonna do.
    if he is just gonna throw new bearings and a paint job I wouldnt even bother.
    if he is actually gonna rebuild the box including bushings on the mainshaft and any gears that show wear(rev gets beat hard, as can first) then a grand might be very reasonable.
    but if they are quoting a G without even seeing the box...
    also mainshaft splines are commonly worn bad from coupler contact.
    I paid a G to have some hack rebearing my tranny and TC and a new coupler. total waste of money.
    read the articles in my webshots album and learn what is inside a 465 so you can be aware of what he is doing for the money.
    whats a shop rate? $65 an hour? a G is a lot of hours.

    everyso often you can find a rebuild kit for that on ebay for $108.95. a grand isn't worth it. you can get 2 or 3 out of a junk yard for that.

    Find a salvage yard where you can pull it yourself.Save some bucks before I gave that for rebuild.If it's slack in the coupler that 1000 will go a long way towards doubler setup. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's easy enough to do the whole rebuild yourself. The bearings have to come off for you to even get inside for the most part. From there all you really need is a press and you can do the whole thing yourself. Hard parts prices are not really all that bad for this case. If you want more info check here. In short yep, a grand is way more than I'd feel comfortable paying for someone to rebuild a manual transmission. Good luck!

    A grand is a lot, seeing a how the last SM465 I bought I paid $50 for it from a junk yard.
