L52 (i know) and later?? model xcase
« on: Jan 05, 2008, 12:07:40 AM »
I just swapped a w56 for a l52 in my '81.  So I gotta the old l52 to get rid of.  The xcase comes w/ and appears to be from a later model.  Sounds dumb but it has the late model shifter on it and it just looks newer than the tranny.  All my previous trucks were 89+ and the xcase looks the same as was on those.  I rebuilt the l52 i put in about a year ago in a truck that got wrecked so i know what that one looked like.

Enough BS here's the meat and potatoes:

The tranny wasn't completely dead when I pulled it.  All gears worked fine.  It had a lot of slack in the shifting and popped out of 3rd and 1st upon deacelleration only.  I could hear a noise in all gears when lugging it, obviously needs new bearings.  I've hear the input shaft is often cause of this and makes sense as I felt some slack in the in the input shaft when pulled (at lease more that w56 has).  Probably need the top plate rebuilt and new bearings.  Absolutely no grinding or gear noise at normal rpms. 

What your buying (that's worth a :pokinit:) is shifters, gears, synchros, xcase, shafts, and case (top, main, and bell housing) and shifters.

$400 OBO

Sorry, I rebuilt the w56 that's why it in and the L52's out.  I have no idea how many miles are on the tranny.  It appeared to not have been original upon pull.  I can post pics if REALLY needed.

Jimbo,

if your interested and I mean really I'll get you pics.  I also got the rest of the 90 minus 22R that the W56 came from if anyone interested.  I live in Memphis and all the parts are in Sommerville ('bout 20 miles outta town) at folk's house.

The 90's wrecked in the front passenger side.

Does everyone know what a greasy transmission looks like..............that's it.   Not to be an a-hole but come on.  There is nothing sexy about it; you get to clean it before you start working on it.  Seriously now

If someone is actually interested I will post pics, but it's a not next door, so I'm not gonna do it for fun.  Look at a new one on the website if you wanna see what it looks like.

yeah okay.  I'll take $250.  The xcase is good.  Ya'll are killin' my ass w/ these pictures. :maddest:

I'm goin out to my folks house tomorrow to mess with my 81; changing a tie rod end and trying to straighten the tie rod itself.  Anyone know what the toe in is suppose to be on it; 1/8" I'm guessing :dunno:.  I'll take some pictures of the L52 and of the doors on the wrecked 90; their fairly straight.

Got some pics for ya'll





the tranny's still $250.  I think your getting more than a core with all the gears and the xcase in good condition, no matter what 79coyotefrg says. :thpst:

Hey 79coyotefrg, 1/8" seems to have worked okay on alignment, thanks for the help.  I'll be watching those Goodyear A/T's at the price their goin for.

I'm gonna put up another post for the doors on the 90 ($50/each).  I also got 87 or 88 (can't remember right now), thats on a bad frame, no bed, straight cab, interior clothes good (needs putting together a bit), engine's good (showing ~170k I think), working turbo, auto.  $850

It pisses me off when people ask for pictures of my parts.....If its a body or interior part or something then I totally understand...buy why the hell would someone want a picture of a 20 year old, rusty, greasy, dirty part.

Whats even worse is when a customer sends me a picture of the part they want and then they want me to send them a picture back of the same item....  ::)

I got mixed feeling on it.  For this I think the description was enough, but whatever to each their own.

Anyone wanna buy it out there?

yes it will but the gears are known as the noisy gears in the early transfer cases they do wine a little,

I think pics are needed, alot of people don't know what they have he said it looks to be original  but he thought the case was newer and if it is original in an 81 its a l50 not an l52, l52 only came in 83 only, 80-82 5 speeds were l50's 4 speeds were l45 and the older 4 speeds 79ish were l40's, and the 50's and 45's look very similar to and l52 expecially a l50 there almost identical on the outside to a 52. Also I see these things for $50 all the time with case I'd say it is worth $150 expecially with bad bearings in the tranny

that case would be good for the donor case, if you are doing a dual case setup
