Rebuild the engine for $2500? AND the transmission, AND new leather??? Those diesel fumes must be strong
lol I love this
Well maybe not 2500 exactly, but pretty close. Depends on how bad the engine and transmission are. I would rebuild transmissions usually charge about 400-800 to remove, overhaul, and install. However, the overhaul was just the seal kit.
The transmissions I rebuilt, Chryser TorqueFlites, never had any major problems. The seals would just fail after so many years. They did have one defect, but the seal kits included the proper part to fix the defect. For the TF's the overhaul kits cost me about $65. For our MB 722 the overhaul kits vary between 125-370 depending on brand.
Even a semi-complete rebuild, friction plates, friction discs, bushings, seal kits, replacement planetary gears... Cost about 850, and that included a new bell housing.
Well new leathers cost 1500 from GAT.
Rebuilding the engine, assuming rings and bearings are good, would only cost about 650-800. Timing chain, gaskets, and for diesels the injector seal washers. Otherwise yes way above 2500 strong diesel fumes :P
