 I got a new one from Robert Braunschweig in Germany. I had a growling sound
in all gears that was suspected to be the input shaft bearings. The only
email I have for him is this one: : rbraun at transtec.de and I am not sure if
it is still valid. Here's his phone number at Transtec: Tel.:

It cost me $700 for the tranny and ~$190 for the shipping to Great Falls,
MT. - I did the customs myself and saved a couple hundered bucks I am told -
very easy to do yourself. Shop here (Missoula) charged me about $500 for the
R&R - All told  it was less than $1500 installed. About 16 months prior to
that, I had 2nd gear replaced at a cost of about $1800 as I recall and 2
months after that, 5th gear synchro went to the tune of $1300. I wasn't
going to have mine worked on 3 times in less than 2 yrs!!
