Series 3 gearbox reconditioners

Hi all , 

Does anyone have any experience with Series 3 gearbox reconditioners ? Ideally here in the east but with carriers anywhere is possible .

Alternatively , I can do it myself if quality parts can be sourced , so also recommendations for quality parts would be useful 

Syncro's on first and second are ineffective and having just drained the oil 3rd and 4th are close behind as a plate spring came out complete along with another in pieces .

All in a gold flecked oily mess.....

It's behind a Disco 200Tdi with no turbo fitted in a 109" TC 

Thanks

Steve

Yes - I’ve been told that by a couple of people. I did contact them for mine a few years back - at that time they had a waiting list …. Perhaps with the factory not doing the series 1’s now it won’t be so bad ?

Cough , splutter . I've just spoken to the people a Whitehouse and it's around 6 months waiting list and £1750 + VAT . I did ask about the JLR work and they said they stopped working for them a while ago as it was not worth it ...

The search for a good used one begins

I've just spoken to Beaumont's and they have stopped rebuilding Land Rover Series boxes as the quality of available parts has declined so much it became too costly to rework the new parts to a useable state. 

That's not very good to hear , but something we are all coming across more and more .

Waiting a call back from GLF

They were my first port of call , they don't do Series but have done a rebuild on an R380 for me a few years back .

GLF said they can o it , 10 week waiting list and around £1300 . 

The end result is I've been very lucky and found a very good used unit complete and local to me too . Fit next week .
