    Hi!

    My tranny\t-case blew and i found a replacement in texas and one in nyc.

    What i am trying to figure out is the weight of the tranny and t-case and also the dimension the box would have to be.

    This is very important, i need to get a shipping quote so i know how much money i have to save up.

    For a 50x50x50cm 100lbs box fedex charges 319$ from TX..

    Best regards

    AWD trans weighs 125 pounds. Transfer case is approximately 35 pounds. A 75x75x75 cm box should be big enough.

    Why dont you get a trucking company to ship it for you? In the past I've paid about $125 on shipping form California to Washington state on shipping, and you wont need a box they strap it on a pallet and off it goes. :talon:

    1G AWD transmission parts weight

    Hi, maybe for some of you this information is useless as this don't qualify for weight reduction but for someone that is rebuilding a transmission outside USA its a precious info because of the high shipping costs. With that info I split the parts that I needed in two flat rate shipping boxes and I saved around $80 on the shipping cost.

    Heres I found with a weight scale:

    All the parts were removed from a 1992 AWD 5 speed transmission

    Front Diff: 7.2Kg (15.9 lbs)
    Center Diff 4Kg (8.8lbs)
    Transfer case with oil inside: 15.5Kg (34.2lbs)

    Transaxle case (without gearing but with shifting forks and guides): 20.2Kg (44.5lbs)
    VCU LSD: 2.3Kg ( 5.1 lbs)
    Intermediate Shaft Assembly: 6.3Kg (13.9lbs)
    Intermediate Shaft (only the shaft, without gearing): 2.9Kg (6.4 lbs)
    Input Shaft Assembly: 4.2Kg (9.3lbs)
    Input Shaft (only the shaft, without gearing) : 1.5Kg (3.3lbs)


    Maybe this info help someone

    thanks for the space
