How much is it worth?I am working my way through the same box very slowly. It will cost 8k in parts when finished. The high ratio synchro is an absolute bitch to get out and is a hole in 2 grand, one half of the synchro is £1200 odd alone! The small tracs are a big job to dismantle so I would try and get as far through the job as possible with your or pals time. Once the box is out, get someone good to strip it or send the box to One of the specialists. Arthur ibbetts might be the most cost effective. South cave are helpful too. Or that Agri transmission place that advertise. The hi/lo splitter is not grinding I assume? It’s mega money if worn. You probably have an air fault with change switch/ clutch peddle valve/ shift ram. Is it building full pressure in both tanks?
Prob worth about 12k when repaired and it cost 6 with the damaged box. But I am fitting a 140hp van engine when it goes back together so it should be pretty useful! The old 85hp engine is pretty feeble.How much is it worth?
Is it worth spending 8k on parts plus labour to repair?
What model is 85hp? I had a 900 turbo. It had a stretched chassis and sprayer on it.Prob worth about 12k when repaired and it cost 6 with the damaged box. But I am fitting a 140hp van engine when it goes back together so it should be pretty useful! The old 85hp engine is pretty feeble.
Same gearbox problem as mine then. Plus my reverse is jumping out and splitter synchros are shot.. the pre 364 engine 900 are 85hp, mine are A reg. later 900’s with the 364 are 90 hp.What model is 85hp? I had a 900 turbo. It had a stretched chassis and sprayer on it.
Always had to go from reverse to select High. Wouldn't go into high from neutral without grinding gears.
What engine are you fitting? I paid £100 for a complete van with the later 364 engine. Low mileage too. Then got crucified with the gearbox.Another vote for south cave there good lads. My MB has started jumping out of 3rd which is a standard problem but will be fixed when the new engine goes in.
OM 366 6 cylinder as its a MB TRAC 1000. Would not have to do it if a well known MB workshop had botherd to tighten up the sump plug when they fitted a clutch.What engine are you fitting? I paid £100 for a complete van with the later 364 engine. Low mileage too. Then got crucified with the gearbox.
Our neighbours went to Holland. Advertise it somewhere like Mascus where it will get widespread coverage. Said he had a lot of interest from abroad. No idea how much he got for it.I’ve seen some scary asking prices ( asking and getting different I know) for MB tracs, what’s a 84 1000 with sub 9 k hrs worth, with a functional gearbox.....
V straight and tidy....only ever been spraying.
Had this problem on my 1000, quite a big job.I have an MB1000 that won’t stay in high range, jumps out, the splitter doesn’t work either.
Is there someone who can repair / overhaul them ?
