Hi guys.

 

Does anyone have a link to any rebuild videos of a 4speed single rail?

and possibly a link to a rebuild kit?

As they were an exclusive to Australia box, and only made for about 15 years give or take, it's unlikely that anyone has done a video for them. Great gearbox, just needed a 5th gear.

 

They are fairly simple inside, but the layshaft from memory is very slightly tapered and needs to be pushed out the back of the casing, not the front. Trying to push it out the wrong way will mash the hole and it will flop around from then onwards.

 

The layshaft is hollow and has a fixed shaft down the middle that the needle rollers run on, unlike many other boxes that have a solid layshaft with bearings at each end.

 

Depending on how much experience you have with manuals, you may get too far into it and get discouraged once you see a colossal mass of parts in front of you. I would advise to set aside a large, long bench with plenty of space to lay out the parts in order of disassembly so you know exactly what sequence they go in.

 

Why does the box need rebuilding? Synchros? Bearing noise?

 

Sorry can't recommend a supplier for a kit, never needed one.

depends where you are located? 

i spoke to 360 gearboxes (on the phone) and they seemed to be experts on the top loader, suspect they'd know the single rail just as well.. 

they said for $120 from memory they could reseal it and check it in the process.

Yes, I can answer this question.

I'm in the process of rebuilding a Single Rail for my XB Falcon.

 

There is only ONE supplier in the Australia (and the world)  for single rail gearbox rebuild parts.

BorgWarner/BTR/ION/DSI Australia, closed about 10yrs ago.

 

The supplier is called ATC - in Wagga Wagga NSW

 

According to the fellow I spoke to, there are very few parts available.

You can only get the following bits new -

Gaskets/seals/small bushes/bearings

Shift fork Bush

Syncro's 

Layshaft bearing assy - rollers and center shaft

 

Nothing else is available, unless you find New Old Stock.

 

The above kit, excl syncro's, is about $350.00

Thanks for the info guys.

Not super sure its needs a rebuild but it come from some sort of hay shed so I want to clean it up and would like it to be a smooth shifter.

one thing that nearly always stuffed on hem is the selector shaft seal,, so replace that a min.. (extension housing needs o be removed for it)
