Hi guys,

William here from sunny side Sydney, Australia. I have acquired a 2nd batch of components for the T50 rebuild kits and I am ready to release them for sale here. The 1st batch had sold out on my home forum which is www.ozclubbies.com.au, hence I've been holding off on advertising the kits here for some time.

I don't own an AE86 as you might have guessed, but I have been toying with the T50 gearbox in my Lotus 7 Replica (Arrow Westfield). An elusive bearing hunt began once I realised that my T50 was starting to show signs of wear. It has almost taken me to the land of the rising sun!

Anyways, heres the kit in detail:

This is by far the most complete kit you can buy and includes the caged needle idler bearings. These caged needle bearings were custom manufactured specifically for this kit as they are the most rare of all the bearings in the T50 gearbox. In particular the 5th gear, hemispherical bearings. To date, there is nobody on the market who is able to supply these. Not even Toyota!

NOTE: This kit is for the late model T50 gearbox that takes a 68mm x 18mm thick input shaft bearing (1983 - 1987 release). A way to verify this is to remove the release bearing shaft collar and read the part number of the input shaft bearing. It should read Nachi 30RT06S3 (or SKF 030-4 if it's been rebuilt in the past) if you have the late model gearbox.
EDIT (Easier way to narrow down your type of gearbox) - if you have 20 splines on the output shaft, you have the 1st generation gearbox, sometimes referred to as a 2T gearbox. (1973-1981). These boxes are kinda rare, and apparently mechanically weaker.
If you have 22 splines on the output shaft, you have either the 2nd generation(1981-1983) or 3rd generation(1983-1987) gearbox. From here it's pretty hard to tell them apart unless you read the part number of the input shaft bearing.
Please ensure you have the 3rd generation type of gearbox. There are 3 variants of this gearbox!

Heres a snapshot of what's included:

Contents/Sub-Pricing:

($295) - Mainshaft/Layshaft(countershaft) bearings (All Japanese branded items, Nachi, NSK & Koyo)

($65) - Synchro kit (1x for each gear, reverse gear has no synchro)
- Compatible with all T50's regardless of the generation.

($75) - Needle bearing sub-kit which includes the following:
- 12x 'Jellybean' or Tic-Tac steel rollers (serves as 4th gear idler bearing)
- 2x Idler reverse gear needle bearings
- 2x Idler needle bearings for 1st and 2nd gear
- 1x Idler hemispherical needle baring for 5th gear

($45) - Shifter rebuild kit featuring b-rock's bronze bushing
- Also includes the rubber cup and washer

Not included:

1x T50 gasket set - In my experience, these paper gaskets are prone to leaking. I've better luck using Permatex/RTV silicone to seal up the gearboxes.

Price:
The comprehensive kit is $AUD480 + shipping. So far, the cost of tracked shipping to Canada(North America) is approx $AUD72. So lets call it $AUD550 landed. At the moment, the Aussie dollar is pretty much at parity with the Canadian dollar. So it equates to about $CAD550. Payment is done via PayPal.

I will also sell individual parts separately. A common addition to the full kit is an extra set of caged needle bearings ($75). To date there is no other supplier out there for these bearings. Please contact me if you are after a specific part. I will also omit parts from the full kit if you require a cheaper price.

If need be I can be contacted directly at haxengineering@gmail.com

Cheers,

William

William is great guy to deal with -- and it's a crazy good price.

Shipping of the roller bearings to Vic from Oz was no slower than stuff from the US.

He has worked hard to put this comprehensive kit together, and deserves our business.

Not bad! The only thing I usually find when rebuilding t50's is that the teeth on the dog rings are all worn out as well, cant seem to find those anywhere.. Changing a syncro isnt gonna do to much if the dog ring is all worn out.

The dog teeth are a part of their corresponding gear. So to replace the dog teeth or clutch teeth, you would have to replace the gear.
