gearbox question

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Looking at a transmission from a 300tdi on a well known auction site.

Question is: I'm guessing this will be an R380 box? If I remember correctly the clutch release mechanism is on the opposite compared to my 200tdi converted TD, If so can I use my TD bellhousing or will the input shaft of the g-box be the wrong length or the clutch be an issue? I know the selector mechanism will also need to be changed.

Any thoughts gratefully received.

300tdi R380 won't fit, shaft & bellhousing are to long, to fit a R380 to a 200Tdi you need the stumpy bell housing version like this one [& mine] from Ashcroft Transmissions

Short Bellhousing R380

300tdi version

it maybe posible to convert the 300tdi R380, but parts such as the stumpy bell housing are not easy to obtain.

clutch slave on my stumpy 380 is on the left same as my original TD/LT77 combination.
