Ford Transit manual gearbox – we have autos, too

The Ford Transit has been on sale in Australia for several decades and is one of the country’s most popular vans. At Transit Spares we have long specialised in wrecking high quality Ford Transit models and have an intimate knowledge of the gearbox options for every Ford Transit variant.

High quality Ford Transit gearboxes and parts

Because we focus on quality, we’re able to offer a warranty on each Ford Transit transmission that we sell. That’s because we select the best available Ford Transit models to wreck, then will test a complete gearbox to ensure that it’s fit for sale. We offer a warranty on our Ford Transit gearbox parts, too.

As a consequence, we’re one of the most trusted Ford Transit wreckers in Australia and New Zealand.

Huge stock of Ford Transit gearbox items

As the Ford Transit is such a popular van in Australia, we always keep in stock a broad range Transit transmissions on site at our Melbourne location. So if you want to replace the gearbox in your Transit, call our team on (03) 8770 2250 to see what’s available, as our stock changes on a frequent basis.

We should easily be able to find what you’re on the search for, and provide you with a host of options. And if you’re on the search for a Ford Transit engine to go with the gearbox, we can help you there, too.

What Ford Transit gearbox types do you have?

Over the years the Ford Transit has been available with a number of different gearbox options, both in manual transmission guises and automatics. So that we can assess your gearbox problem more efficiently, it will be useful to know what gearbox your Transit has.

Please use the list below so that we can get an idea how best to help you:

  • Transit VG – Five-speed manual/four-speed automatic
  • Transit VJ – Five-speed manual MT75/six-speed manual MT82/five-speed automatically shifting manual (ASM)
  • Transit VM – Five-speed manual MT75/six-speed manual MT82
  • Transit Custom (or VN) – Six-speed manual VMT6/six-speed automatic
  • Transit VO – Six-speed manual MT82 (front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive)/six-speed automatic (front-wheel drive)/10-speed automatic 10R80 (front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive)

Ford Transit ASM gearbox problems

The Ford Transit ASM gearbox is a five-speed automatically shifting manual available on Transit VJ-series models. It is most commonly found on ex-Australia Post vehicles where it was seen as advantageous in the sort of stop-start driving you have to do as a postie.

However, it often didn’t work very well and many owners have experienced problems with the Ford Transit ASM gearbox.

Here at First Auto Parts, we’re specialists in converting the ASM gearbox into a regular manual gearbox. At our Melbourne location (that delivers Australia wide with fast shipping) we can fit a full conversion kit that includes a clutch pedal and a standard gear-lever.

This is a very popular conversion and we have worked on Transit models from all over Australia.

Talk to one of our experienced sales team – on (03) 8770 2250 – about what’s involved with the conversion, and how you can ship your Transit to us to have the work done. You’ll be impressed with the results.
