For Sale:$450
Clark 280VO [5.98/3.50/1.86/1.00/0.80/5.04R] 5 speed trans. Used '68-85 and later in over-1.25 ton applications. It is out of a '79 Ford 4WD, F-600 two axle dump. I don't know what engine it had. One of Ford's big industrial gas 6's, I believe. Here are some specs though:
retainer hole dia: 5"
stickout: 6-3/4"
clutch sleeve dia.: 1-3/4"
spline dia.: 1-3/8"
spline count: 10
pilot dia.: 1"
case length 15"
has NP 205 shifter, shifter knob and bracket/linkage still attached.
rr output is round 4 bolt for divorced NP205 short drive shaft
This is a true heavy duty. Much more H.D. than an NV4500 or any Getrag.
Going thru the gears- everything smooth; bearings, synchros.
It seems to be in very good shape. This is a great buy in my view.
I found it just too heavy duty to use in my CJ8. This is the rare one with 20% OD. Most of the Clarks had a 1:1, 5th gear. I posted this 2 years ago, and had lots of bites but no buyer. This is a good deal, and it should last longer than you will.
regards, as always, jefe

If you were not in So cal I'd go pick it up personally. So I'll need to figure cost for frieght.

Eric,
You are one of the "lookers" from 2 years ago! My kids live in San Jose and Castro Valley, so I get up that way quite a bit from La Crescenta. I have some PM's with anxious buyers, so we'll see what happens.
This 280VO is every bit as strong as my NV5600. It also has a lower low gear. The difference is the 280VO weighs about 225 lbs, and the NV5600 (yeah, it's an all-synchro 6 speed though) weighs a whopping 360 lbs.
regards, as always, jefe

Hey Jefe, I have a 1970 factory 4wd crew and I’m looking for this exact transmission or.. Clark 264VO, NP 540O, NP 541O and NP 542O. Do you know where I could find one? Looking to do a ford 300 with one of these behind it in my crew. Thanks, Jaymes Fremont Ca
