Hi all,
just wishing to know if anyone can recommend some one that can rebuild a gearbox and transfer case. It is from 1993 Toyota landcruiser 80 series std model with 400,000 km.

Gear box problem is it is starting to jump out of gear 1st & 5th.

I am in Cranbourne area, so anyone with in 30-40 km would be great.

Thanks in advance,

David

David, try Greg at Smithies Outback Gear, 30 Cooper Crt Cranbourne, 59954325, if he can't help you, he should know someone that can. He does specialise in Nissans, though will look at Tojos, lol. John

Hi John,

Thanks for the info, l went and seen Greg, but he does not do rebuilds. He gave me a name of a place in Dandenong so I will see how I go. he said there where plenty of places doing Auto's but there are not very many people that do manual rebuilds, most people just put in a second hand box.

Thanks for your help anyway it was worth a try,

David

Hi Rooooboy,
I have had a bit of trouble finding people that rebuild gearboxes, a lot just grab a reco or second hand one and put it in.
I have found a place in called Advanced Transmissions in Cranbourne Ph 03 5996 8886. they said it would cost about $2.500 to pull gearbox out and rebuild it. The price is only a ruff Guess depending if they have to replace any of the gears eg 1st & 5th. The gears they said can cost a bit, so they have to look at it first.
On meeting the guys they seemed to know what they where talking about but don't know what they are like, they said they where fully booked for a few weeks so that must mean they are doing something right.
they also said that it was very rare for the transfer box to play up,it would only be dirt and crap in the gear links and gear stick runner.
they would also advise if the clutch was due to be replaced at the same time, but that was up to me if I wanted it done, so it would also add to the cost.
They also advised me that a rebuild would be better than a reco or second hand as I new what the box had done, and it would be better to do it before it failed completely, as then it would cost a lot more.
Hope this helps, David

Hay David.

That problem could be as simple as the nylon bush on the bottom of the gear lever, or the nylon bush the the lever sits in, I would get that checked, as they have been known to perish and break.

Just a thought.

Cheers Steve.

Hi Steve,

I will be looking into all that before I get anything done, l was just after a few ideas before I pulled it all apart.
I know with the trouble that I am having getting into low range is just a build up of mud and crap after getting stuck in a bog hole about 1200mm deep, it flood the 4wd and mud was everywhere!!

Thanks for your input much appreciated,

David
