LT230 gear set fits any box?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a selection of LT230's.

The objective is to put a higher gearset into a 1.4 Defender LT230.

I have a 1.192 from a 1985 V8 LT77 RRC 15D032813A  LT230R, not T

I have two sets of 1.211, one from a 1998 Disco 1 300tdi Auto and one from an unknown D2. 36D715556G 41D832887G 

Will any of these fit into any 1.410 box?

the 1.211 gearsets are all of the Q flavor?

 

Thanks!

Dave

I'll check tonight. Forgot it...

Actually didn't think that it would make a difference...

Mine is 22D666401G, but it actually is more of an example.

I am more interested in which prefixes/suffixes of 1.410 would work and which not. I could just swap in one of my boxes without messing about with changing gear ratios. I still do not know the serial number of a potential box to put it in.

They would most probably be of the 1997-2002 year range.

Hi,

 

the 36D set will drop straight in place of the 22D sxG,

 

the 15A won't, different length input gear and different dog teeth on high gear and roller bearings on the intermediate gear

Now I have the serial number for the real 'patient'.

22D738539G

 

It's close enough to mine that I guess it's still possible to fit the 1.211 gearset from the 36D715556G.

Please confirm that this 1.211 gearset is a LT230Q.

 

Many Thanks

And how about the  41D832887G as a donor?

Will that also fit. I am happier dismounting that gearbox first as it has other issues...

 

Thanks

Yes this will fit fine and yes the 1.211 are termed 'Q' gears for quiet, these have the fine tooth, 38 tooth input gear, quieter but maybe a bit weaker than the earlier ones with fewer fatter teeth.

These gears are the same as the 36D 1.211 gears,

I might have missed something.... but what's the point of swapping the gears into a different box? Just use the other LT230 as the low ranges are all the same?

Many thanks yet again, ashtrans. 

 

The point is that it's easier / cheaper to ship a few gears @ 12kg than a whole box @ 50+ kg, landroversforever. 

One more pont being that one of the tcases Is from a Disco2 and has different output housing than a defender cases. 

Speedo wouldnt work...Tobias
