Stefen Phillips: I'm looking into a rebuild and parts but I'm not sure what transmission I
have exactly....I thought it was a NV3500 but a guy at a local place looked
it in and said its a older transmission called an MG5....so not sure what
it is exactly.....need some help man...thanks in advance
Stefen Phillips: do you know what MG5 is? I have a 1993 Chevy 1500 1/2 ton pickup 2wd and I
had a guy look up my vin and that's what transmission is on my truck I keep
hearing different things but maybe you know more to what it is exactly what
transmission it is. I keep hearing Muncie or getrag idk...but I need a
rebuilt tranny my 5th gear overdrive is out and I only drive 4 gears and my
reverse is out or I think just grinds now
Karen Turner: need help with the C shaped clip that goes in the back of the case. do you
have to install it with the case standing striaght up and down? what is the
best way because I cannot get it to stay on the gear when I try to slide
the gears back in the case... please help
Karen Turner: also mine did not have a hydrollic line at the end of the bell housing (
the last step ) i have a slave cylinder with a line though
khefron2004: Where are the fill and drain plugs on this tranny?
SailorineCB: Sorry had to be split comment, just lots to say, Thank you again for the
insight and the videos, I am working right now on an NV3500 with only
drives in fourth gear malady, 1993 chev 1500 4.3 litre v-6 it roasted the
clutch cause was only able to drive in fourth gear. Your videos assisted me
in diagnosing the issue AND on how to remedy the situation. Appears that it
is common for this light duty trans to be plagued with what you showed and
what I am experiencing, Again thanks for the videos NSP
valflyinf: The bellhousing is part of the case so no, you cannot separate the
bellhousing, but you can definitely separate the cases, and you could order
just the part of the case with the bellhousing if it is inexpensive, and
then the swap would be very very easy. What project are you into?
steelheadfisherman: Hey man, I've got two NV3500 transmissions, ones got blown synchros, the
other a cracked bell housing. Are the housing removal (with somewhat ease?)
i've looked at like a hundred sites that say NV3500 bell housings are not
Ron quert: This is NOT a rebuild! You did butcher it but you also showed people how to
take it apart your way and put it back together. Good insight! good luck.
RonmanB1: Thanks for the breakdown, guys; it really helped! I just took apart the
Dodge version and it's pretty much identical. I picked the transmission up
from a junkyard and noticed a little input shaft play (1/2 price day at the
pick-n-pull so I got it for $50!).....I've only split the cases and looked
around but I see the same wear on that forward countershaft gear. I've
rebuilt another transmission (A833 Dodge) and it's notorious for the same
mainshaft bearing wear. Continued.....
valflyinf: And by the way what a deal you got on that tranny! what are you gonna
install it in? Your bearing will probably run you around 25 bucks or so.
SailorineCB: WOW, I really enjoyed you dudes and your tranny rebuild, AS FOR alwaysopens
comment bout a butcher job, WTF??? i bet he got some lavish shop of his
own, all kinds of lathes, state of the art diagnostic equipment, DUDES were
in an apartment room taking a trans apart and putting back together to aid
in the less neurotic and uninformed watchers that are mechanics in their
own right, and giving valuable insight as to the complications of reducing
an nv3500 to parts with out destroying it, PROPS men
RonmanB1: So, I think the appropriate fix for us is just a bearing kit (maybe just a
mainshaft bearing) not grinding the gear down. Your videos cracked me up at
times but were very helpful. I'm also anxious to see if your transmission
holds up. Keep us posted. Anybody else trying to re build a nv3500 that
needs help, feel free to email me. I feel anybody can rebuild these
alwaysopen: This wasn't a rebuild, it was a butcher job. Grinding away at those gears
with a Dremel tool isn't the best idea and all of those parts should have
been washed in a solvent afterward. A properly rebuilt/reman tranny will be
going in there in a short while - let's see.
Shonda Boyer: Tks for the vid. My husband and I rebuild the trains from 1992 Chevy 1500
Shonda Boyer: So during the install all working fine but the alternator not. Replaced and
that is not the issue. Any suggestions on what we did wrong with reinstall?
valflyinf: @RonmanB1 LOL ya I dont plan anything I'll say so anything goes, its live.
Anyway ya if you have that much play the front bearing(that goes in the
inside of the case itself) is probably missing a coupkle BBs or something.
or maybe shredded the bearing frame that holds the BBs together. My buddy
still hasnt reinstalled it back in the truck so we don't know yet but
probably it will quit making that whiny noise.. Now I am tempted to rebuild
an automatic, maybe the ones that go on crown vics?
valflyinf: @RonmanB1 I did it for you home mechanics, I am really glad it got you
started. After this one I grew the corones to do my own tranny and now it
is fixed :) (in the 02 GT stang)
alwaysopen: @alwaysopen I had to watch this again and get a laugh out of you calling
bolts 'screws', The pins you are removing are called 'roller pins' and you
should have a punch for them. You should really put new ones in their place
when reassembling whatever you take them out of. Engines and transmissions
vibrate a lot so those things can let go. Firearms use them extensively as
well. The rod the shifter forks are attached to is the shifter rail.
steelheadfisherman: Thanks for the reply, looked into your Part 1 video and it showed you
splitting them apart, sorry I was thinking the bell housing was the case.
Is there *THREE* pressure fit pins? 2 outside, and 1 inside? I've got a 94
Sierra 1500 4x4, currently torn apart in the yard, everything brand new
except the tranny and engine now, frame repainted and rock/rust gaurded.
Ready for another 300xxx km :) Take care
StevensAssisi: This was really amazing, and I'd like to thank you for the contribution!
I'm about to rebuild a T4 from an old jeep. Thanks again!!
