I have two HJ7 transmissions I’ve tried selling, but no takers. With all the other stuff I picked up last year with my 427 swap, I need to get rid of these as I’ll never use them (I now also have a pair of P44’s as back-ups). Any ideas? Can I just scrap them? Will I have to disassemble first?

Looking for any ideas.

If you’re at the point of scrapping I would take them to a trans shop. I bet they would give you scap value, which would only be a few bucks. 

Thanks Mike - didn’t even consider they’d be interested. Guess maybe for parts? Anyway, I’ll give some a call. Thanks.


Two days ago, which is the day before our garbage pickup, we put an old weed whacker and the battery charger out on our tree bank. It was gone in 5 minutes!! In our area the scrappers cruise neighborhoods both the day before, and the day of garbage pickup. Generally, they are delighted to pick up something with metal in it, plus many other items. I have used this method for years and am continually amazed at how fast things go, and how strong some of these guys are as I watch them pick up and throw very heavy items in their pickup trucks. Why don't you see if your HF-7's will go ?? The real shame of this is that sometime in the future, a club member is going to need an HF-7 or some parts from one, and they don't have enough foresight to pick these up from you. Believe me, if I was still boating and had a boat with these transmissions, they would have a new home in my storage shed, awaiting the day they or part of them would be needed. Climbing down from my soapbox now -----  :-)

I have a pair too  that have to go soon

I was surprised too, Dick. I had them listed here for quite a while with only one bite. I’d practically give them away of someone could use them. 

I think it’s mostly the logistics of shipping the trans around the county. I have a couple in pieces I plan on listing if I ever get around to doing my repower. Their parts are worth more than the whole and easier to ship.

Let me help here also....

Matt's trasmissions are HJ7 2.5:1 transmissions. For anyone that has these in their boats one thought to ponder. 

The Sun gears alone in the reduction units are NO LONGER MADE OR AVAILABLE unless used. 

If no one takes them for any cost Matt. Hang on to them and I will pick up in November and hold for sale in the shop for you. 

One final thought.  Call kalamzoo gear and talk to them. They always keep rebuildables on their floor and may offer you something. 

Let me know!

Thanks Lee!

Augie - to clarify, I currently have 6 transmissions. I have two P44’s in my boat and two P44 spares in my shed. None of those four are going anywhere. What I want to offload is the pair of HJ7’s I also have and will never use. 

Where are you located, Matt?  While I don't currently need these, you never know, and I have a place I can store them.  I would hate to see them go for scrap. 

I’m in Annapolis, MD, Kevin. 

The trick would be getting them to Tennessee where our boat is. 

Road trip???
