R380 questions


Recommended Posts

I am planning on putting a TD5 engine in my 130 to replace the knackered 300tdi.

I need a TD5 gearbox....

I have a dead 300tdi R380 I can rebuild (bearings went big time) and put a td5 bell housing and mainshaft in it. Or I can get a reconditioned td5 gearbox, but will my transferbox fit straight on?

The cost of a rebuild kit + bellhousing and main shaft is not far off the price of a recon unit.

What would you do?

most 300 tdi R 380 are suffix J, if yours is then the TD5 pinion will not fit as all TD5's are either a suffix K or L and the pinion bearings are different,

Thanks for replies.

I find all these different Landy gearboxes confusing :?

What bits do I need to buy/change to get a 300tdi R380 suffix J to fit to a TD5 engine?

Thanks...Al

I think Dave has answered that for you. I took his reply to be a black and white statement that the TD5 shaft can't be fitted to a suffix J box - if it was possible he would have said so.

I recall from information on the Ashcroft web site that the bearings were increased in size for suffix K & L, so presume from Dave's post above that the bearing OD and ID are increased in the suffix K & L boxes. Then the bore in the suffix J housing would not accept the larger bearing required for the TD5 pinion shaft.
