MDL 6-speed overdrive manual transmission Rebuild service

How do We begin this process?

T56 must be shipped by UPS LTL freight and must be calculated. 
If you wish to send in your T56 for service, please contact us for an ‘RMA’ so we can advise you what your likely repair cost will be.
We can arrange for a call tag to be emailed to you for your convenience and provide advice on how to package it for safe travel.

Once we receive your transmission we will open up the case and perform an inspection to evaluate what needs to be repaired.

We will then contact you to discuss our findings, possibly make suggestions, and get your OK before proceeding.

A basic rebuild needing NO extra parts is priced below.

Break-in / Driving

Driving Techniques
A 500-mile break-in period will prevent premature wear and possible damage to the transmission. During the
break-in period, you must avoid high RPM shifts and “drag” starts. The clutch must be fully disengaged to shift
the transmission. Do not use excessive force when shifting the transmission. If you experience clash shifts
(grinding), check clutch travel to ensure proper air gap is achieved. Another possible cause of clash shifting is
improper transmission installation (excessive driveline angle / resulting in poor driveline alignment). Do not hold
the transmission in gear by applying force on the shifter. This will damage the pads on the shift forks and may
result in significant damage to the transmission.
