R380 stubby for a 200tdi

Anyone know where to get an R380 that will work with a 200tdi in a 90?
Preferably used and stateside.
Thanks

You may get lucky and find one here in the states but I looked for a few years and never came across one.

Ashcroft sells them new in the UK that is the route I would go.

Spoke with Dave Ashcroft last week and he has the bell housing and shaft to convert ready to ship.

I am still on the fence if to stay with the LT77 or do the change, saving the pennies for a 3.2 tdci

personally the Lt77's that I have had have been smoother better gear boxes than r380's. I have 1 of each in two different tdi's now and prefer the 77. My r380 was built by Ashcrofts 2 years ago with the latest suffix upgrades.

That's good to hear, saves me a lot of problems. I figured as long as the truck was apart it might of been a good upgrade, especially since I have the seat box already.

Did you get the ECU?

It should work, the truck was a 140,000 mile truck that got parted because of front end damage

I have a diesel R380 out of a defender.
I don't remember the suffix off hand but I can check.

Should work very nicely with your 200Tdi. And regardless of what anyone may claim about the "smoothness" of an LT-77, they're weak. The R380 is the better gearbox in every way and I've had both.

I won't work without moving the engine.

I moved my engine when I went from an LT-77 to an R-380.

It's not like it's hard or complicated.
