Gonna Rebuild my T150. LOL

Okay in the interest of money and time and the fact I would like to get my jeep back on the road now and not 5 or more years down the road. I will attempt to rebuild my T150 3 speed trans. I figure 31 years and 50+ thousand miles of it behind a Chevy 350 a rebuild should realisticly get me years down the road. Unfort it will burn a bit more petrol! Anyway so any tips? Thoughts? Ideas? Intrusctions? I saw quadratec rebuild kits for like 100. I will pull it off the jeep in the next couple days and see what the gears look like. But It only broke bearings (what the mechanic said) and I drove it home from the shop with no grinding issues. So hopefully the teeth are all good! But I can purchase individual gears from 4wd if I have to. So whatever help I can get would be awesome!

Brian

Well, I was in the same boat as you and did it with only minor trouble. It really depends on what needs to be replaced as to how bad it will be. The best thing is to find a good schematic of the tranny, which I didn't have. Drain it, pull it out, and put it on a clean clutter free bench and start tearing into it. I had never done it before either but it all went back together and I've got no problems! Good luck!

If your Jeeps not leaking it's out of fluids.

I used the Hayens manual and took pictures as I took it a part. The cashier at the drug store looked at me funny when I bought a big jar of vasaline to hold the needle bearings in.

It is not as bad as it seems it would be, I rebuilt an ax-15 myself after being quoted 1800+ to have a shop replace it.(couldn't find one to rebuild) I cost 600+ for shafts and shiftfork and the clutch too since I had everything out thought I might as well. Great learning experience, also taught me not to speed shift. Just keep things in order and clean work bench. If I can do ANYone can, good luck. Kell

A clean 4x4 always looks good, but you must also remember it is important to cleanse the soul of your vehicle, OFFROAD

Get a strong pair of transmission external snap ring pliers from Snap-On. #PR16

You will not regret the purchase and do wear safety glasses and gloves.

The two best off-road vehicles in the world -- the Jeep CJ and rental cars.
