I found this for sale and was wondering what it would take to fix it, and how costly? He wants 1250.00 for it. Is this a good price?

Used Tremec TKO 500 5 speed !! It has less than 300 miles on it, however, it has a 3rd gear synchro problem. It DOES NOT grind, however, at high RPM's, it will not let you shift in from 2nd to 3rd... It acts like there is a lock out. I've been told by two Tran's shops that it's simple to repair, which I planned to do, however, I'm tired of storing it in my garage, still in the Tremek box !!.

If it is for a Ford like ours, it might be worth $800 to take a risk on it.

The seller may come back at $1000 and then you would have to think.

Can you get the ID number to be sure it is one that will fit?

PS: If it is "simple to do" repair, why is it not done already? Be careful.

Yeah that's a good price but it has an acknowledged problem and it will be you loss if that 'easy to fix' fix doesn't do it.I'd pass.
