    getrag 284 5-speed swap

    Finally found another 5-speed that I paid dearly for. My original Getrag That I drove 1200 miles to get never worked, well, would grind in 3-5th gear. Got it out, to a local shop, they got overwhelmed and sent it to California and they couldn't find the parts to fix it. Got the new transmission but missing a few connection parts. Had to get those sent back from California and it it going together today. Transmission was rebuilt and set aside for a back-up. We will see how it goes. Will show some pictures. Anyone know how to reset the computer so that my cruise control will work with the 5-speed. I had read it somewhere and now can't find it.

    getrag 284 5-speed

    Desperately seeking a getrag 284 5-speed. Mine is out and not repairable without 5th gear and syncro. Looking for parts or whole trasmission. Beautiful car dead in the shop for 8 months!!
  3. The swap went well, the transmission was bad from the start. 2nd/3rd/4th with a grind on a hard shift. Had to let the RPM's come down with the clutch engaged to slip it in. Was a blast to drive. Found a shop that said they can fix it and now the need the 5th gear and syncro to complete. Dead in the shop for 7 months now. WOuld love a good 284 to put her back to life

    The Holy Grail - Rebuilding the Getrag 284 5TM60

    I did just find a guy who worked for GM and took a bunch of parts with him and supposedly has a bunch of getrag 284's and maybe some complete ones. I lost my 2nd gear on my 284 that I put in my 95 Olds convertible and have been looking for a 2nd gear or whole unit for 6 months. I reply when I know more
