Re: Wtb: dead/broken e153
The near impossible part selector shaft, carmikey chasing for years, many of us on the hunt always, selector shafts are golden nuggets. $2K box will get you a selector shaft and near dead box :(
Lot of parts can be grabbed out of a camry 1mx manual 1999-2000 e153 (last price was $800 delivered just pre-covid), however lots of work to make it work (different final drive / different shaft, different case drilling, different gear etc width for different tolerance on shaft - but can use a few internals in varying combinations - internet will tell you it all slaps together and over, happy to show you here in Brisbane why it doesnt).
Diff cover can buy new.
Every which way, partial solutions, everyone wants cheap but unlikely.
