Is This T150 Shot?

When I purchased my Jeep I also inherited many parts. One of which is a T150 with a Dana 20 attached. I was playing around with it today and the Dana 20 seems to shift ok but the T150 is frozen. The input shaft won't move and it will not shift. I opened the cover and it was completely dry and full of rust. The gear teeth looked ok but everything has a coat of rust on it. I'm not a transmission guy but know I that there are some pretty intricate pieces in this thing and wonder if it is toast now. Any thoughts? Hopefully I can post a pic tomorrow. Rob

Post pics, but all the bearings would have to be replaced and the gears MIGHT wear in clean again at the teeth.....might. post pics.

Yep get some pics T150s are cheap when you find them and parts are available if the gears look good then a master rebuild kit may solve all your problems the T150 is an easy rebuild.

I tried posting some pics of it this morning and after I cropped the heck out of photos to get below the 540 allowable file size it said "upload failed". I guess there are still issues with posting pics so I'll try again in a bit. Rob

Ouch. Those gears are tough though. I'd say buy a rebuild kit and get to work. The T150 is a relatively simple tranny to tear down and rebuild.

So from what I'm hearing it is rebuildable? On a scale from 1-10 what's the difficulty and whats the rough cost doing it myself? I may do it for the learning experience and then pass it on to someone who could use it. Rob

That's not a good "learner" because it will be more difficult to disassemble it and you won't have a accurate feel of how it comes apart vs how it goes together. Heat and pullers may be needed when otherwise not called for. It might be able to be rebuilt and put in use again, it will just be a little more difficult. If upon disassemble, you discover more damage, you will need experience to make a judgement call on wether to proceed. Some times the shafts have built in surfaces that the gear clogs rest or spin on and if badly pitted or corroded, you might experience excelerated wear when back on use. Gear whine might be experienced as well. With break in, it will quite down.... In this case, maybe not.
I would give this one away and upgrade to something else...

Thank you for the advice. I know a few guys that may be able to use it.
