  1. are you filling it with the sump horizontal ? the output flanges sit much lower in the vehicle,
  2. I dont think they really caught on, from what I remember they were either too loose and slipped excessively like these or they were too tight and didnt slip at all, defeating the object.
  3. you can use this flywheel, adapter ring and LT77 bell housing but you have to redrill the flywheel and fit the 9.5" diameter clutch from the 4 cyl Dave
  4. the lock ring is skipping over the side gear engagement teeth when loaded, thats what making the ticking noise, Dave
  5. Hi, I suspect the arm that flicks the reverse idler gear has come off the gear and the lever then cant return, I think you will have to strip the box, Dave
  6. Hi all, a short note to make you aware we have recently taken delivery of two new LT230 ratios we have designed and made. One is 1.100 : 1, ideal for those with tuned TD5 Discos or tuned TDCi Defenders who 'want another gear' The other is 1 .301 : 1 ratio, good for those who have put bigger tyres on their Disco or TDCi Defender and find the 1.211 too high, or those with a TDi or TD5 Defender who want to gear it up a little but think the 1.2 ratio may make it a bit too high. please take a look and let me know what you think, New LT230 ratios the ratio calculator is quite useful to see the difference any changes will make : Ratio Calculator Dave Ashcroft Ashcroft Transmissions
  7. Hi, I dont know why it was clocked in Landrovers but it runs flat in most 2 wheel drive applications with a different sump, filter and oil pickup pipe, Dave
  8. Hi, if you are using the M57 and ZF 4HP22/24 see : https://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co.uk/m57-bmw-engine-to-zf-kit.html Dave
  9. Do you have the short R380 or the ‘normal’ longer bellhousing 300 tdi type ?
  10. Hi, not so much backlash, it’s the crown wheel runout that may need checking Dave
  11. you can use the D1 or D2 disco box to fit our adapter to along with the defender top housing, forget the P38, very different, Dave
  12. Hi, once you have removed it, get it on a bench, remove the sump and give me a call and I will talk you through removing the gear, changing the intermediate bearings and dropping the gear back in, or you can stick it on a pallet and send it to me , if it just needs these 2 bearings, with new spacer and nut only about £75 parts and labour and about £60 return carriage, Dave 01582 496040
  13. Check for any front to back float in the intermediate gear, if it moves then the intermediate bearings have failed, quite a common failure
  14. Hi Richard, the LT77 is not the same as the oil pump is internal so cannot leak externally, Dave
  15. Hi, who was the collar from ? about 2 years ago we had some leaks which we found to be due to the poor surface finish on the collars so we now make our own with a much better surface finish, another area they can leak from is the oil pump, (often misdiagnosed as the mainsheet seal above) sometimes down the pump screws, sometimes around the outer O ring (can get cut if the pump does not go in true) and also sometimes from the gasket under the steel cover, always fit new, note the britpart pumps are good but the gaskets that come with them are not, we change them, Dave
