The Discos I & II and Classic RR all have a 1.2 LT230, albeit with a different spedo drive gear set up for an electronic spedo.

I would google for a bulkhead, but others may have better sources.
They come in 2 flavors, with or without front vent flaps.

As far as I know, 1.2 and 1.4 transfer cases have the exact same low range gearing. The high range is the only difference.

If that is the case, I am definitely going with 1.2. Having said that, I am reading up on LT230s and discos have LT230Qs? Do these work with LT77/R380?

Thanks!

Yes. Q just means the gears are supposed to be quieter.

I am going to look around for LT230 in US then.

So one more question, how do you get the speedometer to work if D1 and Defender have different speedo assembly.

It is very easy to swap, the LT230 tailhousing has a speedo drive which is the same, you only change the bits that bolt to the T case. If you do get a disco case, keep the speed sensor, it will come in handy when you decide to install a digital speedometer.

Question to anyone who has purchased an ashcroft transmission. Did you spring the extra $230 for the heavy duty bushings? Wondering if it is worth the extra cash. I'm about to place an order for my R380 replacement but don't know if I should go for all the bells and whistles "while I'm at it".
