914 2 litre gearbox

Just curious at this point. Could anyone give me an idea on the cost of a reconditioned transmission(gearbox in OZ)?
Thanks Geoff

The cost varies a whole lot. A good bit of that depends on what your definition of "reconditioned" is.

There are some places that will take an old used box, replace most of the gaskets, clean it up, do a little filing on the dog-teeth, and swap the synchros around so the less-worn ones are on the lower gears which see more use. Those are pretty cheap. I've seen prices below $1500; at least some of those prices have been for this sort of "rebuild".

Some people will take a couple of old gearboxes (like a tail-shifter with relatively few miles and a well-worn side-shifter) and use the best parts in one gearbox. If those two boxes are in pretty good shape, the price can be relatively reasonable.

There are also those who will replace every gasket, every bearing, every bushing, every synchro, and any slider or gearset that shows noticeable wear. Some of those will even use NOS transmission cases. Those are mind-bendingly expensive. (Parts prices alone are pretty staggering!!) Prices can run to $4K or even more...

It's tough to do a reasonably-complete rebuild for less than $2K these days. Just check the parts prices in our Transmission section! Not all transmissions will need all parts, but just counting the commonly-worn bits you can easily run well over a grand.

Geoff: The price to make first gear like new is just under $600.00 US. Most of the other parts can come from other trannies. If you can get some low mile trannies for parts. Most trannies will yeild at least 2 syncros and a slider. I (Thomas builds the trannies) put new 1st gear in all the cars here. New dog-teeth and sliders make all the differance in the wourld. There is good info on trannies here and at The Club.
My mechanical ability seems to be directly related to my ability to withstand pain.
