  1. So wee update, passed MOT with no advisories ๐Ÿ˜Ž steering box was fitted today with no major woes. Was a bit tight as the first test drive was done. So gave it a bleed, after a shower of ATF scooshed out, test drive number two was good. No leaks so far ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™ Fitted as a whole unit.
  2. Thanks guys, weekend job sorted then. Itโ€™s a 1987 2.5na ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘ Itโ€™s also MOT day today ๐Ÿ™
  3. As it says guys, mines has a slight leak at the drop arm. Another good deal by a forum member got me a hopefully good replacement. Itโ€™s all in one piece. So do I need to remove the arm or can I fit it as one whole unit?
  4. Thanks Ralph just wanted to double check. Iโ€™ve got it in my head to use same oil as what your joining together. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  5. Got the part number off the actual shaft but it may be superceded by now.
  6. Afternoon, Iโ€™m in the middle (nearly finished hopefully) of repacking seals, O ring and gaskets on my LT230 transfer box. About ready to put it back in and wondered, do you put grease on the gearbox shaft (FRC5305) into the transfer box or does the EP90 gear oil do the job?
  7. Thanks Ralph, hope yer ok down there ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Hi guys, looking to make sure I order the correct seal. Iโ€™m taking off the transfer box from the gearbox and I suspect the seal on the LT77 needs replacing. Part number for genuine would be much appreciated. ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Thanks for the responses guys. I may try the seal to start with to see the outcome. If it goes again, then Iโ€™ll look into a proper refurbished box. Itโ€™s bone dry everywhere else and has been good in the years Iโ€™ve had the truck. Don't suppose thereโ€™s a good write up in the tech archives?
  10. Iโ€™ll do a bit more research, itโ€™s only a slight weep right now. Am I correct in thinking itโ€™s an O ring failure?
  11. Hi guys, just returned from my second camp to find the steering box is weeping at the bottom seal. Whatโ€™s your thoughts? Easy enough to repair the seal or better to go for a good known box Replacement? ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Thanks for the info boys, something to look into for sure. Is there a massive difference with the R380 in place?
  13. I did type LT230 Ralph but the blooming auto correct changed it ๐Ÿ™„ Be interested to know costs ๐Ÿค”
  14. Thanks for the details @reb78 appreciate it. My box has always been smooth and I do change the ATF regularly (probs more than needed). Iโ€™m not allowed back to work yet so have another couple of weeks free. I might as well drop the RT230 transfer and have a look. It seems like a mix of EP90 and ATF to be honest. I laughed today when I was sniffing the oil. For me ATF smells like strong B.O. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Would a stubby R380 fit a 2.5na and RT230 tranny? ๐Ÿค”
  15. Resurrecting this thread....... did you manage to source the trouble of the leak @reb78 ? I seem to have a slight ATF leak very similar to yours
