I bought my kit from a local transmission shop for 185.

All ya need is a good bench with solid vise. Seperate the case halves and mount the mid plate with all the gears in the vise and lay everything out in order as you tear it down. Pay special attention to the small washers and spacers. I had some extra parts when I finished mine, but it shifts like a dream and has taken some serious thrashings over the last 6 months.

Good luck

Take plenty of pics during disassembly or a video. That would help you remember how everything goes back together.

you wont get much money for the trans metal, at work i used to take engines and trannies we pulled for scrap cash. i worked out what we got for a transmission and it was a couple bucks or something lol. last time i bought a rebuild kit for one of my Toyotas a couple years ago it was $200ish on Ebay

I get about $100 for 1500lbs of cast & forged steel and iron up where I am.

I usually melt aluminum down for my students to use in their foundry projects.

pick your year out. if its earlier than the 1989 then use that one. 1990 covers to 93.
Do you know if there is another source for FSM? I don't think this website has them anymore due to some legal issues raised by Nissan. I have a 97 XE 4x4. Thank you.
