Default WTT for .681 5th gearset

I'm looking to trade for a .681 gearset that will work in an 02A/02B/02J/02R/02Z gearboxes. I have the following 5th gear sets for trade: .838, .756, .717 and .700. Will sell .838 for $75, .756 for $150, .717 for $200. Price includes shipping in the continental US.


  • 31:37 = 0.838
  • 34:45 = 0.756 (02A 311 361 Q : 02A 311 158 E)
  • 33:46 = 0.717 (02A 311 361 M : 02A 311 158 R)
  • 28:40 = 0.700 (02A 311 361 AM : 02A 311 158 AF)
  • 32:47 = 0.681 (02D 311 361 : 02D 311 158)
  • 27:41 = 0.658 (02Z 311 361 A : 02Z 311 158 A)

I initially had an 02b/CPW 5spd transmission with the 5cyl AAF engine that came with the .838(70mph at 3500rpm) on my 93 Eurovan weekender. I swapped out that at a point for the OEM .717(70mph at 3000rpm). It's a 1000 rpm drop from 4th to 5th if I remember right. I would think swapping to .756 would be ideal. At a point I converted to the 1.9/AHU and drove with the transmission as was for a couple years, running out of gears pretty fast, but was usable.

Spare .838

I then converted the 93 Eurovan MV with a 02b/CHP and 5cy AAF to 1.9/1z. Put in a the taller .658, which was ideal for 5th gear with the CHP r&p, but is a huge jump from 4th. 1500rpm maybe. I don't recall the mph at rpm. I sold that van before I would call it completely bug free.

2nd spare .838 and now a .756 in the CTN transmission, which I still have, that is also interchangeable.

With the money from that sale, I upgraded to an 02b/EWB on my weekender, which is geared for a diesel. it comes with a .700 5th gear(70mph at 3000rpm). This is fine but felt a little short for a long trip to AZ from WA. 4th to 5th, 500rpm drop. Went again to the .658 and now (70mph at 2500rpm). Great for the highway on long flats, but back to a 1000rpm drop. I'm about to go back to the .700 since it will be better I think for everyday driving that is peaking at 70mph, then less. I'm expecting a .681 on the EWB to give me 70mph at 2750rpm which I think will be a happy medium for my driving style.

So spared .717 from the old tranny and .700 from the new tranny.

Probably over explained, but a little detail for Eurovan 5th gear swaps.

How much would shipping be on a set of gears generally?

Is the 0.658 back on the market? I seem to recall it pending at one point.

The 658 is currently not available. I've removed it from the list.

Is the .717 gearset still available? If so, how negotiable is your asking price? PM me and let's see if we can work a deal.
