Rebuilding a T5 Manual

Has anyone ever rebuilt a 5 speed manual here(EA one mainly), and if so how hard was it and how long did it take. Also where can you get good quality rebuild kits for them?

Cheers

try and get a book an rebuilding gearboxes, preferably one on borg warner transmissions or if possible, one on just t5's.

if you are good with the tools, u shouldnt have any troubles. u might need some specialist eqipment.

I've got 2 books covering reconditioning the T5 Manual, both a Haynes and Gregories manual with full decriptions on how to do it. But I need to know just how difficult it actually is to do as I don't want to pull it half apart only to find it's near impossible to get apart of put back together properly.

Oh yeah, and I still need some idea's on where to get a rebuild kit for it. Would Ford Service centers have anything like that?

Cheers

Bursons should carry a rebuild kit

I was going to rebuild a 4spd single rail i have but the kit was ~$280 which included synchro's, bearings and gaskets. I needed a gear or 2 aswell and they were outrageously priced so I didnt do it.

Yeah I went into Repco today and got a price on a rebuild kit for the T5 manual for the EA Falcon... $615!!! F%ck me dead! And he only added $20 on the cost price as well I think!

He was on the phone at the time, so I couldn't get him to tell me what was in the kit. I'm guessing all new syncro's, bearings, gaskets and everything else exluding gears?

How much are these gearboxes brand new?

He was lying about the $20 above his cost.
My price on a T5 rebuild kit for an XF, which I think is the same as an EA is just under $250, If you need 1 ,let me know and I'll work out a price for you.

No he wasn't... I saw him mark the price up on the computer.

Maybe the repco rebuild kit comes with a lot more parts.

I work for Repco, if he was going to sell it for $20 above cost, he will be severly reamed by the Manager, the Regional manager and probably the Zone manager.
from a cost of $595 to a sale of $620 is only a 4.5% markup, and I can assure you that no self preserving Repco employee will let it go for 4.5% Gross Profit.
