SM465 Rebuild

How much roughly does it cost to rebuild this transmission? (Provided no new gears are needed)

Re: SM465 Rebuild

why would you have to rebuild one of them things, did you float them all the time and grind them, my truck is an 87 and it has the same tranny, but why do you want to have it rubuilt or were you just curiuos. good luck

why would you have to rebuild one of them things, did you float them all the time and grind it really bad, my truck is an 87 and it has the same tranny, but do you want to have it rubuilt or were you just curiuos. good luck.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

Maybe he found it in a junk yard or something where he doesn't know it's history. I honesty have no idea what it would cost but I know it shouldn't be to much more (if not less) than $600.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

Beats me, but it probably won't be much if you just replace what needs to be replaced. I'd immediately get new input and output shaft bearings, races, and seals (probably around $100). Other than that I'd replace a synchronizer or two if they were wore out.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

I have bought a gasket set, and looked at the prices for the input and output berrings on one. The gasket set was pretty cheap. But the output berring was like $90 from NAPA. I would expect the kit to be around a couple hundred $$. One of the gus from Off-Road Design have easy access to the rebuild kits, and offered to sell me one once, but I never got to the price.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

I just did one for my Jeep Cherokee Project, i bought a kit off ebay for $108, i bought a new solid 3rd gear, the spacer that replaces the snap rings on the countershaft and the heavy springs for the lid to keep 3rd gear from popping out... All said and done it was $158 for parts. I bought it from www txchange.com great people. The kit on ebay is the cheapest i have found, comes with all the stuff you need to rebuild one.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

The reason I asked is a friend of mine has an SM465 in his truck with well over 240000 miles on it, and the synchros howl like a bastard, and he's going to do the motor so might as well do the tranny.

Re: SM465 Rebuild

I've got an 83 with 400,000+ yes over Four-Hundred-Thousand, and it's never been rebuilt yet. Still sounds good, shifts smoothly, runs good.
