Well...I'm in a jam and need to find a t5 quick before the 4cyl one I have now behind my 5.0 goes out. Looked around locally and there's a Guy selling one that was previously behind a 351w. Says it slightly grinds going into 2nd and 3rd, but doesn't jump out and all other gears are fine. What's something like this worth? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Here is some of what it will need:
A rebuild with a good kit including rings and bearings
A second gear - due to damage from scraping (they all do)
A third gear (probably) - due to damage from scraping
A 1-2 slider gear - due to damage from scraping (they all do)
A 3-4 synchro hub (probably)
It is essentially a core. Cores go for 100-200.00
I would say this was nowhere near worth 200...
It may serve you in a pinch, and that seems to be the need...
Don't forget to replace the pilot bearing with a 5.0 type!
