Short R380 bell housing

Recommended Posts

After 14 months of faithful service, i've just killed another recon Lt77 gearbox on by 200tdi defender. :rolleyes:

Was thinking about fitting an R380 this time but realise that i will need to change the input shaft and the bell housing.

I know ashcrofts will do the gearbox already made up but if i spend £800 on a gearbox then i'll need a whole load more cash for a divorce.

Thought is .. take a chance on a TD5 gearbox and transfer box. Take it to bits and change the input shaft.

Is there anything else i need to change other than any worn parts ?

Is it easy to recon a box or is it best left to the experts ?

Anything i need to know about ?

Which bellhousing do i use ?
