Parts for Dodge Getrag G360 5 Speed Transmissions

The Getrag G360 is a German made 5 speed fully synchronized, cast-iron case transmission that Dodge used in 1989 to 1993 Ram 250 and 350 series trucks with the Cummins 5.9 liter Turbo charged Diesel engine. At first glance, the G360 looks like a good, strong gearbox, however, in practice, it suffered from severe durability problems. (Continued at Bottom of Page)

Case Parts and 4x4 Coupler

product note
Dodge used male spline NP205 input shafts that utilize a coupler with female splines to connect to your Getrag transmission output shaft. These couplers often need replacement due to spline wear as they are not bathed in oil. All our couplers have the locating snap ring(s) installed which insures full spline contact with both the transmission output shaft and transfer case input shaft

QU10528 29 Spline Coupler Sleeve for Dodge G360 is used with 1989 to 1993 Dodge Ram W250 and W350 4x4 trucks with the Cummins Turbo-Diesel and Getrag G360 5 speed manual transmission. This Female Spline Coupler transmits power from the 29 spline male transmission output shaft to the 29 spline male NP205 input shaft. The Coupler is grooved in the center for a pre-installed snap ring which keeps the Coupler centered on the two shafts.

QU10855 23 Spline Coupler Sleeve for Dodge Is used with 1980 to 1993 Dodge Ram W250 and W350 4x4 trucks with the either automatic transmissions or 4 speed manual transmissions.

(Continued from Top of Page) The typical Getrag will usually last between 75,000 and 125,000 miles between rebuilds. Certainly, some went far more than that, but for most of these vintage trucks, you can expect to rebuild or replace the transmission 2 or 3 times over the life of the engine.

Most G360 failures can be attributed to one or more of four major causes: lubrication issues, engine torque, and heat from long-distance driving, and clutch pilot bushing wear. Dodge owners manuals recommended 5w30 motor oil. While we have been unable to find a suitable high-pressure lube for this application, experience has shown switching to a synthetic 5w30 has beneficial effects as does adding no more than one quart of additional oil. The G360 would have been a great transmission behind a V8 gas motor, but from an engineering standpoint, it is marginal for the torque of the stock Cummins Diesel. Generally with manual transmissions, the model number indicates the torque rating of the unit so you can make your own conclusions about the 420 lb-ft torque of the Cummins. Heat generated from long-distance, high-speed trailer towing combined with the pre-load on the bearings will significantly hasten bearing wear. Lastly, Dodge used a thin-wall bronze clutch pilot bushing in the Cummins flywheel. These bushings have a tendency to wear quickly. A worn pilot bushing will not keep the transmission input shaft centered with the crankshaft or keep it in alignment with the transmission Mainshaft. Result? Increased wear on the transmission bearings and gears, plus possible erratic clutch performance.

Many trucks with G360s' were retrofitted with the New Venture NV4500HD 5 speed which debuted in 1994 Dodge trucks. We were one of the pioneers with this conversion, doing our first one in 1996. Installing a brand-new 4500 with our Torque King® Mainshaft set was a great match with these first generation trucks and it still is, but the economics of putting that much money into an aged truck makes rebuilding the G360 much more sensible and cost effective than it was in previous years. Rebuilding your G360 will extend the life of your truck without the expense of doing a conversion. We offer a full line of aftermarket replacement parts to keep your hard-working Dodge on the job. Unless otherwise noted, our G360 parts are imported from India or Taiwan.
