5 speed boxes

I gonna rebuild a 5 speed... bro's a mechanic.. all bearings n syncro's where needed.. n clutch will be looked at then.. obviously

So are there any recommendations or common issues i might need to know about?

Also.. i been told that the flywheel of the XF 6 has an issue with undoing itself when revved high..

Anyone heard of this? The bloke i was talking to is into dragracing so it was revved real hard.

Re: 5 speed boxes

Don't malwood make the gearbox?? Or do they just deal with them? Cus they might have cheaper bearings for the box - from my experiences, Ford are 40% dearer for the EXACT same items than other places

Re: 5 speed boxes

T5? i heard that the commodore input shaft bearing is th beast to use as their shaft is much longer hence heavy duty bearing. any comments
my T5 is making a collapsed bearing noise (constant through all gears)not in car any more but would like to rebuild it.?
does anyone do a change over on these boxes in victoria? if so what is price mine has worn second synchros as most would? but at $550 i would not replace them.

Re: 5 speed boxes

but the input shaft is suported in the piot bearing in the crank..... the t5's have twin tapererd rollers in the input shaft pretty strong i think

Re: 5 speed boxes

Ford arent allways right.

Remember this comment from ford

"The 4 speed automatics are a sealed unit, requiring no maintainence"

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: 5 speed boxes

You could also order upgraded gearsets/clusters from the Ford Motorsport catalogue, stronger gearsets & diff ratios, top make the T5 alot stronger.
