PostSubject: Rebuild cost on T56   Cost to rebuild a t56? Icon_minitimeSat Sep 22, 2012 12:49 am

I have a line on a 96 Camaro unit that works but difficult to get into 3&4 gears.
It is priced right at 500 obo, but curious as to what a full rebuild ( worst cae) would run....

Thanks

To have it done right it will be $1300 plus parts. It sounds like you need syncro's. $500 is a good deal on any t56. You might get that much selling it as a core to a re-builder. Pick this car up Jon. You will have most everything you need for the install.

This is a fairly local guy to me. He did a great job and known for his HP resistant tranny's. Many of the Vettes he does put down in access of 1000 HP.

Buy it now for that price, and you can alway sell it later if the rebuild becomes cost prohibitive.

I spent about a grand to redo one recently. Replace the syncros, sliders, and the glass second gear...

now thats funny right there,.
the longevity of 2nd gear is directly related to the speed of the 1-2 shift and the amount of torque being transferred,. Laughing

hmm, I see another one on my drive home for 700 that's supposed to be in good shape.

Issue is though, it's a mod out of my budget right now.....what with car insurance, etc due...
Probably call the guy (it's about 80 miles from where I'm staying but on the way home) and if he's avail Sat, go look at it with 400 in my pocket and see what happens....

thanks for the info.

Tried to get with the guy to look at tranny and had 450 in my pocket.
Mind you this was 60 miles into a 450 mile drive on Saturday.

1. It rained HARD for 400+ of those miles and was raining in the guy's town.
2. Day before says he'll meet me by the interstate, gives me exit info, etc. cool!
3. I give him the 30 minutes heads up. No answer, leave message.
4. Get to exit, pull off, call. No answer. send text this time, "I'm here."
5. 20 min later calls back and says he's running late and on the way in a few.
6. Not hungry but eat lunch so I don't have to stop later, top off fuel.
7. Watch the minutes and no miles tick by.....
8. 30 min later nothing. Call back, no answer. I'm pretty annoyed now..
9. 10 min later calls back and says his brother has the keys to the shop and can't get ahold of him, can I come back tomorrow....Um, not happening told you I was driving through...
10. Get back on road rather deflated.....

Wasn't meant to be....keep on shopping.

You'd think he would have gotten it the night before or at least made an effort to get access to it.

You can get a clutch for $200-250 but I was not happy with the chatter that came with them.

An $85.00 flywheel with an $850.00 clutch & pressure plate?

Just the sound of it seems wrong.

All well and good to give out options, but realisitcally, how many 6 speed cars would there be out there if everyone had to drop close to a grand in just the clutch system?

It is probably safe to say there isn't anyone else on this board with a T56 that spent anywhere near that.

Might wish to spend some time further investigating your options before running off and budgeting for that kind of coin.

It is true that some people have had trouble with some of the cheaper AutoZone type clutches, but if you need that kind of quality to keep the clutch alive, then either you shouldn't be driving a manual transmission, or you're masking a problem somewhere else in the driveline.

Yeah, even going with a Spec or RAM clutch, you're looking at about 600 bucks... I thought the McCloud twin discs were the only ones around a grand?

And though I haven't heard good things about the Centerforce clutches, I did drive Tim's car and the clutch felt pretty nice.

Keep in mind, this is coming from a guy who tried just about every clutch and never found one he liked. Wink

Zoom - junk lots of chatter
Performance - same clutch as zoom also chattered.
1st ram - crap - pressure plate was coming apart!!
2nd ram - different clutch ram sent the wrong one. Or was the first one wrong? They could not help me!!!!!
Centerforce ($650 from summit) was the best of the bunch. Dual friction single clutch.

And I do know how to drive.

The first two was with a dual mass flywheel so that may have been part of the chatter.

The dirty little secret is that they all start with the exact same pressure plate. Zoom, Performance, & Ram do NOTHING to change it. Centerforce reworked thiers and add centrifical weights.

The M80 is what you want. By far the most bang for your buck.

The 30 year old little red wagon comes to the resue again.... Smile

Agreed that anyone is a good one cheers

The sticker on the top is unreadable, but the shifter casing has an F as a suffix assuming f-body.
Guy said 93 Camaro so it's one or the other. (m28 or m29). The is supposed to be a metal tag but I don't find one.
I'm kinda suspicious of how good it is as there are a few bolts missing here and there ( said his buddy's rustang needed them).

Right now though I have to toss the new startah in the wife's RMW....
