Feeler - R380/LT230 combo

I'm not 100% sure I am going to need this yet, but figured I'd see what's out there and what I should expect to pay for a complete used R380/LT230 in known working condition.

Thoughts or know of any for sale? I assume shipping will be high if not nearby me?

LT230 are ~250-300 for one in good shape 1.2 ratio. More for a 1.4 ratio.

R380 you are going to want a short shaft R380 to fit in a series (unless your motor is really short and it may be ....) and they are think on the ground in the US. In fact, I have never seen a used one sell. The NAS V8 ones in good to decent shape sell for $800 or so push or shove.

A short shaft LT77 should be available for short money out of a ROW import than is getting an upgrade.

In my case I don't think length is an issue as the electric motors are shorter than gas engines, I don't have a radiator, and don't mind modifying the frame if necessary either.

Good call on the LT77 option!

I've got a rebuilt R380 for a V8, no bellhousing, and I'll even throw in a 1.6 box for free! (needs input gear)

To answer one question charles asked, you can ship an LT230 fedex oversize for ~$100 anywhere in the country. You can do the same with an R380 IF you pull the bellhousing and ship is separately.

Man oh man. I thought you had too. Got a bit deeper into the gearbox and have encountered some bigger issues. It could be rebuilt, but may be more cost effective to swap out. Thank you for all of your help though! Your insight has been huge.

You need to clarify if the R380 is for a V8 or diesel and if you want the Defender or Disco gear shift arrangement. All 4 combinations are different and availability and cost is vastly different...

Good call. It's for a V8 Defender.

What are the symptoms?

Remember anything you find on your truck has been seen 100xs before by the people on the board.

What fluid do you have in it ... The wrong stuff will make it perform like shit.

The fact that you've driven it makes me question the gearbox being faulty ...

That's sounds like the selector mechanism rather than the box itself. Let me see if I can dig up some instructions to set it up correctly.

Guessing its all related to the grub screw ... I bet someone took it a part or messed with it once upon a time!
