jimmy_neutron Posted April 27, 2009 Share Posted April 27, 2009 I have worked out that the easiest was is to just to buy the complete assembly TRC103140 but ashcrofts don't have one unfortunately and they cost serious money. So I have been digging around to find another way... I've been offered a TD5 gearbox with transfer box still attached off a 2006 defender thats done about 26000 miles for £400 +vat + delivery. I need a bell housing FTC4018. I can't get one of these so Western has kindly talked me into making one. Next i will need the short pinion.. and this is where my question is ... I think i need FTC1428 but can someone please confirm this ?? I have also been told that the early r380's have got a 26 tooth cog on the pinion and the Td5 R380 has 27 teeth. Can't find any other info relating to this though.. Anyone else built there own short R380 cos its starting to drive me mental. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
