What is a fair price to pay someone to rebuild transmission on a 1974 MF Tractor?

1963 MF 35 Dual clutch,...6 speed...I Just completed... NO multi power, NO independent PTO...

Who removes the Transmission...?
Who installs the Transmission..?

Some one has to supply and or make the required Mandrels to install OIL SEALS.. Oil seals on INPUT shafts to Transmission..

Has OIL leaked into Clutch housing..... Clutch plates ????
What are the signs that you believe the Transmission requires to be rebuilt??

Engine as well as Diff assembly must be removed...

After I had stripped the transmission as per the MF service manual...and only then did I become aware of the entire amount of parts that had to be replaced!
I have $2700.00 + in parts invested in this Transmission and Dual Clutch assembly. All gaskets,all bearings,
$300.00 invested in the Mandrels to install the oil seals. They were machined to my specifications.
This Transmission had 6000 Hrs..
I'm retired and I own this Tractor..
I'll let the comments from those who do this work for a living tell us what the cost for labour would be..
Bob..

If you can find a good experienced
mechanic to do it just pay whatever he
asks. A few grand and up depending on
what all he finds and you never know the
total until you tear it down. If you can
locate a good used one you would be much
better off.

A word to the wise though. Anyone who
gives you a definite price upfront or is
willing to negotiate isn't someone you
want to hire to fix it. A ballpark
figure is the best you can get from a
decent mechanic.

Trans.is attached to Engine.
